Girl’s Prosthetic Leg Is a Huge Hit With Supportive Classmates
While Americans continue to debate the state of healthcare, there's one story in Britain that is sure to make you smile.
A seven-year-old girl on the other side of the pond got a warm welcome from classmates when she showed up to school with her new prosthetic leg.
Anu is the girl whose leg became the pleasant focus of her classmates' awe.
Kids tend to make fun of anyone who looks different, so this video is refreshing in the acceptance the classmates show. What also makes this unique is this little piece of information that seems rather timely, considering what is going on in the U.S.
According to People, "It was paid for by England’s National Health Service, as part of a government initiative to help people upgrade their false limbs."
The prosthetics cost roughly $2,600 and need to be changed every other year, although funding for it will end in March.
Despite that, Anu's father says he will do whatever he must to help her. "Being a parent, it’s my responsibility to give her all the facilities a kid would expect to sustain a normal life,” he said.
