Syrian conflict is in its seventh year; 30 000 people are injured each month and in need of basic medical care. Severely restricted access to medical care causes a significant number of injuries to turn into lifelong disabilities, this could be prevented by providing basic medical care which we take for granted

There are an estimated 50,000 amputees inside Syria who are innocent victims.

One Nation’s Prosthetic Artificial Limbs Clinic in Syria (P.A.L.S) offers hope for a meaningful life for those who have lost limbs.  By returning these individuals to a life of ability, independence and productivity, the whole family they support is often lifted out of poverty and dependence.

Sadly, many of the victims are children, with your donations, One Nation has been able to help children in our PALS centre. On average, the PALS centre treats around 30 patients a month who are fitted with prosthetic limbs. These limbs are lightweight and strong with extremely flexible joints, in line with the highest international standards.

Treating each patient costs around £1,000, this includes assessments, fitting and rehabilitation. Make that difference today and help change lives.
