Arabic Center for Prosthetics in Oman
The Arabic Center for Prosthetics in Oman (ACP) in the Sultanate of Oman has restored hope to another 50 war-affected wounded Yemenis from Marib and several other Yemeni governorates.
Muhammad Al-Jarbani, a Yemeni mine victim, was hit by several shrapnel years ago and lost his right leg. Although this tragic indecent made him lose his smile too early, he did not despair. At Arabic Center for Prosthetics in Oman in Salalah, he installed a prosthetic limb, and hope returned to him. He restored his movement ability now and can move normally.
Along with 50 other wounded people who received medical care at the ACP, Muhammad installed a new limb and was trained to use it during a month-long rehabilitative treatment trip.
“The center has rehabilitated 750 wounded Yemenis in line with international standards, within 12 consecutive batches,” Ibrahim Ozogul, a prosthetics technician at the Arabic Center for Prosthetics in Oman said.
International human rights organizations, including SAM for Rights and Liberties, have praised ACP’s role in alleviating the suffering of mine victims in Yemen.
More than 2500 Yemenis have been killed and more than 3000 Yemenis—including 1000 women and children—were injured by mine explosions since the beginning of the war in 17 Yemeni governorates.
The Arabic Center for Prosthetics in Oman is a humanitarian charitable project founded by Sheikh Hamoud Saeed Al-Mikhlafi to serve war-affected wounded Yemenis with the support and facilities of the Sultanate of Oman.
