Segment 1: Eyewitness: The Reality for Syrian Civilians – With Allam Dalati, Founder of The Charitable Limb

Allam is a prosthetics expert. He is half Syrian and grew up in Syria. He lives in Arkansas where he had his prosthetics practice and also taught. He started The Charitable Limb (or on Facebook:The Charitable Limb) in 2000 with the mission of fitting poor people in Syria with artificial limbs. He now focuses his efforts on people who lost limbs in the violence in Syria. He goes to clinics in Turkey, then goes to Syria to help people who are still there. He will bring a unique perspective to the realities of the effects of war on civilians. And show you can how you can help.
