Mission Statement
The Charitable Limb (TCL) is a very small organization whose sole goal is helping the needy with O&P requirements. The main field of operations has been in Syria. Before the conflict began, TCL conducted an annual clinic at the largest public hospital in Damascus, the Muassat hospital. During the five week clinic, prospective patients were evaluated and treated while hospital staff were also trained in protocols of amputee treatment from OR to final delivery of a prosthetic device. This included gate training and alignment analysis. The clinics started in 2000; the primary objective has been fitting the poor and neglected amputees in need of prosthetic limbs. The secondary objective was education and training. All services have been free of charge.


Additional Information & Comments

Since the hostilities began, I have been treating and fitting Syrian civilians who have lost limbs, or suffered partial limb paralysis due to the ongoing atrocities. The services take place at field hospitals within the freed territories of Syria. I now close my private practice in the United States for three moths at a time in order to conduct semi annual missions in Syria.
I founded TCL with the ultimate goal of establishing a permanent non profit prosthetic and rehabilitation center in Syria. Unfortunately the funding never materialized.
Before the war broke out, Syria was in dire need of such a center, now, two or three centers will be needed to address the overwhelming demand for proper O&P services.
