War-affected wounded Yeminis search for hope despite injury


Muscat, (Business News Report)|| With a difficult smile, Hilal Al-Dabai meets you in the training hall with a determination raising from the ashes of pain to appear to you in full stature. He did not lose hope or surrender to his misfortune. In the prime of his life, but with half a body. The other half was lost in a landmine explosion in the war in Yemen.

A year and a half ago, he fell into a month-long coma. Hilal says that since the landmine exploded, near the borders of Saada Governorate, and he woke up to his new shape, his view of things around him has changed.

Without lower limbs, Hilal, appearing as an incomplete moon, and 50 other war-affected amputees receive motor rehabilitation within the 13th batch of wounded Yemenis in the corridors of the Arab Center for Prosthetics in Salalah, the Sultanate of Oman.

“Hilal came here on his wheelchair, despairing, but after two weeks of training and installing the prosthetic limbs, he moved in an amazing way, filled with a new hope,” says Ibrahim Ozugul, a specialist in the field of prosthetic limbs.

“800 wounded have been rehabilitated, but Hilal’s case was one of the most difficult and complicated cases due to the shortness of the root area and the fact he had not fitted a limb before,” Ozogul adds.

With international standards, and with the support and facilities of the Sultanate of Oman, Hilal received a grant to receive treatment at the Arab Center for Prosthetics. Established by Sheikh Hamoud Saeed Al-Mikhlafi to serve the war-affected Yemeni wounded, the center carries out humanitarian and charitable tasks.
