Surrey’s Saadia Ibrahim, 20, is currently appearing in a new War Amps public service announcement airing across Canada during the address label mailing.

A right leg amputee, she is a member of The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program and, as such, is eligible to receive financial assistance with artificial limbs, counselling and attend seminars.

The PSA, funded by corporate donations, is titled War Amps Champs, and features Champs showing the artificial limbs and devices they use to stay active and keep up with their peers.

In it, Ibrahim describes how The War Amps has helped her to be confident and comfortable with her amputation.
