Description : Ashraf, 37, was injured in 2011 in fighting that took place in his hometown Misrata, Libya. He lost his leg after sustaining an injury caused by mortar fragments. Ashraf was first hospitalized in Tunisia where his leg was amputated. He then returned to Libya but daily life activities like going to work and playing with his children have become a struggle. A physical rehabilitation center, supported by ICRC, has given Ashraf a prosthetic leg to help him retain a sense of normalcy.
In February 2016, Misrata University signed an agreement with the ICRC related to its Physical Rehabilitation Center in order to make available a good quality long term services leading to a better social integration.
ICRC support consists of provision of raw material, machinery and components to the center to provide free of charge services including assistive devices.
Since April 2016, Ashraf and over 100 other beneficiaries have received services from the Center.
