Ibrahim, 5 Year Old Iraqi Boy Who Lost His Legs in 2008
Ibrahim is a five year old boy from Iraq who lost his legs in an explosion. Without a wheelchair, he had to crawl on the ground in Iraq and was not able to explore his surroundings. Thanks to the efforts of Army doctor, LTC Paul Morrissey and the Iraqi Children’s Project, in 2008 he came to the United States where Springfield Shriners Hospital fitted him with prosthetic legs, allowing him to walk again. He was excited and grateful to regain his mobility, and loved his time in the United States. He even came to the TDF fundraiser in November of 2008!
