“Mustafa Abdullah, a four-year-old from #Syria, is a patient at #MSF’s newly upgraded reconstructive surgery hospital in Amman, Jordan.

He suffered severe injuries to his hip, leg and head in August 2014 when a barrel bomb fell on his family house. Both his father and mother were killed as well as one of his sisters and a cousin. He crossed the border into Jordan from Syria with his grandmother after spending 17 days of treatment in a field hospital in the village.

Four months later, he was identified by an #MSF doctor in Zaatari camp for Syrian #refugees in Jordan and admitted to the Amman reconstructive surgery project. He had one orthopedic surgery in his leg and is currently undergoing physiotherapy until his next surgery is scheduled.

He arrived in a wheelchair but after several physiotherapy sessions can now stand up with the support of a walker.
The hospital serves #war wounded patients from across the region who have no access to specialised surgical care.
