Horrors Of War: Eight-year-old Girl Using Sardine Cans As ‘Legs’ In A Syrian Displacement Camp Moves The Internet

Maya Mohammad Ali Merhi, aged 8, and her father were born without legs. The medical condition they are suffering from is called congenital amputation – the cause of which is unknown.

His father couldn’t afford prosthetics so he made her legs using sardine cans, filled with scraps of clothes and cotton to help her move in the refugee camp for displaced people in Syrian province Idlib. The tins are the only way Maya can walk around the displacement camp, where she was brought with her family after they fled Aleppo.

The heartbreaking footage that has created an unrest on the internet shows both daughter and father, side by side, while he tells how he made the ‘legs’.

“I mounted some plastic on two tins of sardines with which she can go to school with. My heart suffers when I see her crawling in front of friends, while they play and run.” – Her father said speaking to Syrian Charity.

The images of the little girl using cans as prosthetic is shattering for any human being, but the homemade prosthetics have helped her life drastically. Mohammed said that he is at peace that his family can lead a safe life there but it is his dream to see his daughter walk properly and lead life normally, but for now the cans will do the job.

‘It’s hard but those are better than nothing.’ – Mohammed said.

Maya is one of the 13.1 million people across Syria who are in need of urgent help and humanitarian aid – among which 5 million are innocent children.
Three million people are living in besieged areas and displacement camps without any access to humanitarian aid and deprived of urgent medical assistance. The total number of displaced Syrians has risen to 11.5 million – while the war goes on.
