for kids, war woundedIraqi soldier Abdullah lost his left hand fighting Daesh (ISIS) but now he has a prosthetic one – thanks to a 3-D printing lab in Jordan. The 22-year-old is one of a group of Iraqi, Syrian and Yemeni amputees to benefit from a 3-D printing prosthetics clinic at a hospital run by the medical charity Doctors Without Borders (MSF).The 3-D printing technique allows the team to create simple upper limbs without moving parts, slashing the costs of manufacturing advanced, custom-made prosthetic limbs, according to MSF.Project coordinator Pierre Moreau said it had treated 15 Syrians, Iraqis, Yemenis, Palestinians and Jordanians since its launch.The new technique was developed by MSF in collaboration with "Fab Lab," a digital manufacturing laboratory in Jordan.
