(As of now, since the establishment of the Centre, UNKRA has allocated $612,780 to repair and expand the buildings, to install modern prosthetic equipment and to start vocational training courses; it also sent a team of rehabilitation experts).

A choice of 14 vocational training courses make it possible for everyone to find a trade suited to his abilities.) -- This picture, taken in the Centre's physiotherapy room, shows a Korean nurse helping two of her youngest patients, both polio victims, to crawl up a ramp.
