IMPAKTaid also takes on special projects for medical relief, such as supplying crutches, artificial limbs, wheelchairs and wheelchair bikes to the disabled in the camps and surrounding areas.
IMPAKTaid also organises specialised medical treatment for those who need it, such as providing hearing aids, treating infections, undertaking skin grafts and sight-restoring eye operations for children.
IMPAKTaid will continue to require support by way of donations to enable other projects like these to be taken up as the needs arise.
