Oqab Mahmoud Nasser - Jordan

Oqab Nasser was born in 1958. He lives in Zarqa, is married and has 4 children.

He was walking in his father’s farm when he stepped on a landmine on 1st of Aug 1978. He had many injuries: he lost his left leg above the knee, left arm above the elbow, and three fingers from his right hand.

The LSN Outreach worker helped him obtain health insurance from Ministry of Health, and he now receives a monthly salary from the Ministry of Social Development. He recently received a new above-the-knee prosthesis from the Al-Basheer Center, after LSN submitted the raw materials that were needed to produce the prosthesis.

He is very happy for what Jordan has achieved in removing landmines, and hopes that this will protect all innocent civilians from the danger of landmines. He thanks his majesty, King Abdullah, for all he is doing to improve the lives of Jordanians.
