Description : The Aldo Chavarria Hospital has a Rehabilitation Centre for war victims and have been supporting them during the conflict in the 80´s. The low income of the country population makes it very difficult for disabled people to afford the US$530 to get a new prosthesis. Today, the hospital offers free access to prosthesis to the war victims thanks to the financial support of the ICRC Special Found for the Disabled.
