Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy.. Renew Hope

Within the areas of war and conflict, where a person lives countless challenges that reflect one after the other on his life and on his relationship with those around him, in those areas in particular, the mobility disability becomes something like the virtual death of those afflicted with it! Disability is considered to be of unspeakable physical and psychological pain in normal circumstances, so how if your home is in a state of war, conflict, or economic collapse?

There may be many types, causes and forms of mobility disabilities, but the majority of them unite in one path of salvation and treatment, this path is the physiotherapy, so what exactly is physiotherapy? Physiotherapy is a series of therapeutic activities that are provided to individuals in order to restore movement to the normal limit, while developing and maintaining functional abilities at all levels of life that a person goes through, in addition to improving the quality of life, rehabilitation and the possibility of moving again in the natural way as possible.

 

Yemen and Syria

War zones were the most deserving of care in this regard, in addition to the fact that the war operations in them had physically damaged thousands of people, and resulted in them severe injuries that led to multiple mobility disabilities, so physiotherapy services within these areas had to be given utmost importance, taking into account the humanitarian conditions, and sensitive to the population whose interests, livelihoods, and even homes have been destroyed by wars.

For all this, “Al-Ameen” for humanitarian support moved to take over the responsibility of physiotherapy centers in two countries that have been devastated by wars and conflicts and are still, which are: Yemen and Syria, making their peoples vulnerable to various injuries that have produced innumerable mobility disabilities. As the “Al-Ameen” teams supervise four physiotherapy centers in Yemen in “Aden – Taiz – Saioun – Maareb” and one center in Syria in “Idlib”.

As a matter of accurate statistics, during the month of April alone, Taiz Physiotherapy Center received 109 patients, Aden Center received 86 patients, while Saioun Center received 182 patients, Maareb Center received 146 patients, and Ariha Center in Syria received 183 patients.

 

Physiotherapy renews Sami’s hope

Many human stories that were reported to the physiotherapy centers in Yemen and Syria, Among them, we bring today the story of the 36-year-old young man “Sami Saeed Anbar” from Republic of Yemen -Hadramout city, who is a father of three, and works in his small project in his three-wheeled bicycle to transport goods and livestock to all the people of Saioun.

Sami does not leave his lips with a smile in front of everyone who met him, whether he knows him or not. Sami suffered several years ago from a disability in his back after he had a fever that disrupted the functions of his organs, and this injury had adverse consequences in his life and the lives of those who support them, and it stopped His bike was out of work and became just junk in front of his house, and his body and the bodies of his young children were emaciated, and one of them became malnourished. Sami has repeatedly tried to treat his chronic disability, moving between hospitals in Hadramout, Maareb, Aden and Sana’a, but all of these attempts did not bear fruit.

The head of the physiotherapy association tells us: “Sami told us in sign language because he could not speak well, to go and go to the center for an examination and then to undergo a number of physical therapy sessions. A physiotherapist received him and we were surprised that 80% of Sami’s members had returned to Movement and to its functional services”.

The supervising technician tells us about Sami’s condition by saying:” Sami told us in sign language that he could not speak well, by going to the examination center, and then undergoing to a number of physical therapy sessions. After he visit to the Prosthetics and Rehabilitation Center in Seiyun, to follow up on his condition by specialists, and after organizing a treatment program for Sami for more than a year. The result was impressive, 80% of his organs have returned to the movement and to its functional services.

The head of physiotherapy association Society continues by saying: “The center’s workers have created a new friendship with Sami, who keeps mentioning the name of the technician always, because of his creation, reception and good treatment, not to mention that the center provides its services free of charge to all beneficiaries.”

Thus, Sami returned to his small project that achieves decent livelihoods for him by working on his motorbike, and will transport goods and livestock to citizens and displaced people in the city of Saioun, thus achieving qualitative self-sufficiency in his life that he thought that it had completely ended, and his conversion to the abysses of oblivion and valleys of despair.

She-Smiled-Again

She smiled again

She smiled again after the suffering of travel and the need to surgery.

“Sahar Al-Hussein” – 7 years old – suffers from a congenital problem in the heart, which is that the ductus arteriosus remains open, which caused her many health problems, and later she required a cardiac catheterization operation to close that channel.

Sahar, who was born in Hama countryside and resides in the liberated areas, was denied from her right to treatment due to the lack of specialized centers that carry out such operations in northwestern Syria. Sahar was able to enter the Turkish territory and perform the operation at the expense of the “Al-ameen”, so that the smile returns to Sahar’s face, and the joy reigns in her family’s home again.

Sahar’s story is not the only one and it is not the first of its kind. Rather, it is one of dozens of stories produced by the noble solidarity between “Al-Ameen” for humanitarian support, and the health authorities in Turkey in general, so that human aid would be a large and illuminating title for every story.
