This project aims to improve the quality of life and the functional capacity of surviving landmine victims in the Middle East. In collaboration with partners in Jordan, Lebanon, and the West Bank and Gaza, College Montmorency is helping transfer knowledge of orthopaedic and prosthesis care to local technicians and clinicians. The project’s ultimate goal is to improve amputees’ rehabilitation process and support them in their eventual efforts to secure their basic human needs.
Assistance to the victims includes emergency medical attention, occupational therapy, physiotherapy, the provision of prostheses and psychological support, as well as support for their reintegration into society.
This is a new feature, part of CIDA's efforts towards increasing transparency. Information will only be available for projects approved after October 15, 2011. For other projects, information on expected results is usually included in the description.
Results as of the end of the project include: More than 1,200 participants, including 473 women, attended 40 trainings in fields related to physical rehabilitation, such as orthotics and prosthetics, patient treatment approaches and records management. Workshops on gender mainstreaming were delivered to 64 individuals from 20 stakeholders organizations working with mine victims and persons with disabilities. The project contributed to improving the competency of local technicians, specialists and family caretakers to provide appropriate physical rehabilitation treatments and services. In all, training and follow-up coaching with project stakeholders reached an estimated 3,000 individuals, thereby improving the quality of rehabilitation services and possibilities of social reintegration offered to persons with amputations/disabilities in Lebanon, Jordan and the West Bank.
