Sophia’s Story

Sophia’s parents learned that she was going to be born missing her left hand at their first ultrasound. Before she was even born, they were able to get connected with The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program and received tremendous support. Since she was born, the CHAMP Program has been there to help with financial support for artificial limbs, regional seminars and peer support.

Today, Sophia is an active girl who likes rock climbing, playing the piano and swimming. She is proud of the “helping hands” she uses to achieve her goals.

Thanks to those who have donated to the Key Tag Service, Sophia has all the tools she needs to overcome the challenges that come with being an amputee. Your support can make a difference.

Celebrating 100 Years!

Book cover

In 1918, when First World War amputees formed The War Amps, never could they have imagined that their legacy would still be going strong 100 years later. In honour of this milestone, we have compiled our century-long history into a book, With Courage and Determination: The Story of The War Amps 100 Years of Service. In it, you’ll also find photographs and testimonials from people impacted by the Association over the years.

Cost: $15 (includes shipping)
