Yunita’s leg was severely injured during an earthquake at the end of 2018. Her injury became infected. She and her physicians decided they needed to amputate her leg below the knee. She was later given a prosthetic, but she was not confident about using it. Access Life staff had been assisting through this process with Yunita.
In April 2019 we met with Yunita and her family and encouraged her to try the prosthetic. With the help of her husband, Yunita walked using two crutches! Then we challenged her to try it with one crutch. No problem! Then we provided a cane. She was able to walk with this too!
