Prosthetic limbs give Lebanese new hope

China Daily | Updated: 2021-02-23 00:00

BEIRUT, Lebanon-Nihad Abou Dargham is a 60-year-old Lebanese who never imagined he would return to work at his farm after his leg was amputated three years ago when a cluster bomb exploded in a field in southern Lebanon.

His gloom persisted until a prosthetic leg was provided by the Vision Association for Development Rehabilitation and Care, a group of doctors and volunteers who specialized in the field of preparing, manufacturing and installing prosthetic limbs.

"Now I am free to walk without a cane. I will be able to return to my farm and raise my livestock again as this is my only source of living," Dargham said.
