Darly Souza

Darly Souza
Darly was a case UFC couldn’t ignore. She was 5 years old when a venomous snake bit her right leg. Her father couldn’t treat her and no doctors were available at the time they arrived at the medical hub. He had to take her to the closest town, but by the time they got there she had gangrene, and she had to be taken to Bogotá, where doctors amputated her leg. Darly received a prosthetic leg on 2008 and physical therapy, psychological attention, and training to learn how to use her prosthesis. (view small | med | large | orig)

Carlos Jhordan Amaya

Carlos Jhordan Amaya
Carlos is now 12-year-old, but when he was 6 years old a grenade was thrown into his home and exploded close to where he was watching TV with some other children. The explosion seriously injured Carlos and his little sister, and unfortunately killed his younger cousin. Carlos received a left prosthetic leg, almost one year after the incident. Because he is a fast growing boy, it's necessary for his prosthetic leg to be adjusted bi-yearly in order to meet his new height and weight measurements. (view small | med | large | orig)

Lina Fernanda Congo

Lina Fernanda Congo
When Lina was only a baby, she was badly injured due to a bullet impact, while resting in her crib, which came from a combat between the Colombian Army and the guerillas near her house. Because of the seriousness of the injury, her right leg had to be amputated to save her life. After the accident, Lina received a prosthetic leg, and UFC guarantees the necessary adjustments to her prosthesis, every year, so she can live an active childhood until she is fully grown.
