Mohammad from Gaza City was a teenager in Gaza when his leg was amputated after being shot by soldiers in 2018. Mohammad is passionate about sports and participates internationally and locally in competitions for youth with disabilities. He practices footballsoccer, basketball, weightlifting, running, and parkour and is ranked among the best amputee athletes in the Gaza Strip. Mohammad has always dreamed of owning a sports prosthesis, as not having one prevented him from participating in many international paralympic competitions. Thanks to our American nonprofit partner PENTA, who donated pro flexes, a mobile athlete’s foot, and liners, Mohammad received his prosthesis, and in cooperation with Hamad Hospital, a new limb was manufactured using the athlete’s foot. PENTA has been providing PCRF donated artificial limbs and parts to help the amputee youth of Gaza to walk again.
Mohammad has overcome many difficulties and is a great role model to the youth in the Amputee Project. The care he receives through PCRF will help him continue to achieve his dreams of winning sports competitions.
PCRF is the only NGO running a program to help all of the children with amputations in the Gaza Strip through the amputee project and is the leading nonprofit organization in the world, supporting humanitarian projects and programs on the ground in Palestine. For over 30 years, we have provided tens of thousands of children in the Middle East humanitarian aid through direct support based on their needs.
