This 8 year Syrian Girl Walks On Tin Cans as Prosthetic Legs That Her Father Made for Her
To describe this young girl’s plight the word ‘heartbreaking ‘will not suffice. An 8-year-old Syrian girl walks on a prosthetic leg that her father made from the tin cans.
Syrian girl Maya and her Father Mohammad Ali was born without legs due to congenital amputation. They are currently living in the displacement camp for refugees.
Mohammad Ali couldn’t afford real Prosthetics, so he made a pair of tin cans which is filled with the cotton cloths to make easier for his kid Maya to move around.
Mohammad Ali told Syria Charity,” I mounted some plastic on two tins of sardines with which she can go to school with. My heart suffers when I see her crawling in front of friends, while they play and run.”
Mohammad himself need Prosthetic legs even though it’s hard, the tin cans are much better than nothing. He also added he hopes one day his daughter will walk properly.
About 13 million peoples in Syria are in a desperate need for aid as per the statistics of Syria appeal. Over 5 million of them were children, Maya is one of them.
