From the ICRC website:
In 2013, the ICRC provided nearly 33,000 patients with physical rehabilitation materials and services in ten ICRC-supported and one ICRC-operated physical rehabilitation centres in Iraq. These centres continue to be supported with training and raw materials to manufacture equipment such as prostheses, crutches and wheelchairs.
