The earthquake that struck the area in February caused significant human and material losses, as well as permanent injuries to the people. Amputation is one of the most common injuries because victims were trapped under the rubble for long hours (crush syndrome). One of these victims was Mr. Abdulrazzaq Hassan, who narrates his story of survival from the earthquake and the treatment process at the Center for prosthetics of Kurdish Red Crescent /KRC/, the treatment includes physical therapy, and psychological support.
