 Amer was badly injured in a traffic accident in April 2019 in the Wadi Rum area, while heading to work. He suffered from a left hip joint and a right leg fracture. HI has been supporting him to ensure he recovers from his injuries

Almost a month after the accident, he was visited by HI’s team. They evaluated how to improve Amer’s physical condition.

“I am disabled and that prevents me from going to work”,

he told the team. 

Rehabilitation with HI

Amer started physiotherapy.

"HI provided me with physical therapy sessions including exercises and training to stand up and walk. I was given a crutches and I was trained on how to use it and walk with it”,

he explains.

Before that, Amer was using a wheelchair and was not able to move around easily. He is now independent.
