New limbs, new life for South Sudan amputees by Fran Blandy Gunshot wound survivors Jal Keat, 12, left, and Nyagn Thyuong, wait at the Red Cross rehabilitation centre in Juba Stephen, 12, romps confidently around the sunlit courtyard, weaving in between wheelchair-bound patients as he plays with the other children, his prosthetic leg barely a hindrance. When he was five years old, the car he and his family were travelling in hit a landmine in South Sudan's northern town of Bentiu. His grandmother was killed. His left leg was shattered and had to be amputated. Stephen was flown to a physical rehabilitation centre run by the International Committee of the Red Cross ICRC in Juba, which serves both as a prosthetics factory and a hospital for patients coming from all around the country to be fitted with new limbs.
