Description : Samia spent four months in total sadness and desperation. Fortunately, she could get a prosthesis that brought back her smile while she’s playing with her friends in the neighborhood. “We managed to register Samia at the school after getting a prosthesis that enables her to have a normal life”, Samia’s mother said happily.
