A life-changing gift
Your donation will provide prostheses and physical therapy to children like Reema, who have had limbs amputated due to conflict, disaster, or disease. This gift will not only allow children to walk, but also to realize their dreams as Reema has.
Born with a deformed leg and abandoned by her family, Reema’s one wish was to be able to dance like the stars on TV. When Handicap International heard her story, our staff in Nepal found her and provided her with a prosthesis and physical therapy. Today Reema not only dances, she’s winning competitions.
