Mohammad was injured in a bombing raid last year in Syria, and his leg had to be amputated. For a few months, he has been living in Azraq camp (Jordan) with his family. Noor, physiotherapist, advises him on how to walk long distances with the prosthesis Handicap International fitted him with.

Handicap International is able to carry out its activities in the region thanks to the support of the European Commission - Humanitarian Aid & Civil Protection (ECHO).
