Project description

INARA provides life-altering and life-saving medical care for children from conflict areas who have catastrophic injuries and are unable to access treatment due to war.

Through this provision, we aim to reverse or prevent physical disabilities caused by injuries from conflict or living as a refugee. During 2017, INARA will be launching a year-long project providing treatment to refugee children who were born with orthopaedic disabilities, Clubfoot and Developmental Dislocation of the Hip (DDH).

This is a one-year project run by INARA.  All cases will be taken on a first come, first serve basis for those who fit the criteria after medical assessment. Due to the costly nature of this type of medical care, only a limited number of children will be treated under this project (approximately 17 in total).  We will be accepting referrals during February 2017.
