Necessity is the mother of all inventions – Faheem Naji

Faheem Naji understood the meaning of this saying very well and used it to change his life and the lives of those around him, as he started to make artificial limbs from simple materials such as tree branches and steel bars.

It all started when Mohammad’s leg was amputated after this was the only solution to the medical problems he had, he decided to follow his dream and obtained a scholarship from the International Cross to study artificial limbs in India, which is a five-year study field.

Now, Faheem is working at the IRVD center in Yemen and helps tens of people on a daily basis to restore their mobility and movement, in his words ‘More than 5000 people suffered from limbs amputation during the war, and we need to help them in all possible ways to prevent them from being desperate or having suicidal ideas as a result of their status, we should be the ones standing next to them because they deserve all the help an.
