Providing Artificial Limbs to the Palestinian Disability Forum in South Lebanon

Posted in: 

For Palestinian refugees living in camps in Lebanon, life is a daily struggle. For Palestinian refugees with physical disabilities in these camps, the challenges are even greater. To respond to the many challenges disabled Palestinian refugees face, the Palestinian Disability Forum (PDF) was launched in South Lebanon as a local network of groups and organizations that provide services to Palestinians living with disabilities.

At Burj El Shemali camp, El Buss camp, and Ein El Hilweh camp in Saida, South Lebanon, there are a considerable number of Palestinians living with disabilities which makes the PDF’s work immensely important. In partnership with Anera, the PDF Center provides physical rehabilitation and other services in the center and through house visits to disabled Palestinians living within the camps.

Recently Anera, in partnership with Penta, delivered artificial limbs to the center for distribution throughout the camps.
