For a 14-year-old boy who lost his arms in a landmine explosion in Yemen, new prosthetic arms and rehabilitative therapy from Kennedy Krieger’s Limb Differences Clinic open up a world of possibilities for his future.

Mohammed KarimFour years ago, Abdul Karim heard an explosion just outside his house in Yemen. When he opened his door, his ten-year-old son, Mohammed, was standing in the doorway, covered in blood. Mohammed had spent that morning playing outside near his village. As the sun cast its light over the nearby mosque, Mohammed noticed a shiny object on the ground.
