The War Amps

The War Amps

National Headquarters: 2827 Riverside Dr.
Ottawa, ON K1V 0C4

Since its founding in 1918, The War Amps programs have grown from assisting war amputees - whom we still serve - to all amputees, including children. Today, we still have much to do to ensure amputees have the artificial limbs they need to lead independent and active lives. The public's support of the Key Tag Service, which has returned more than 1.5 million sets of lost keys to their owners, makes all our programs possible, including CHAMP for child amputees. The War Amps does not receive government grants.

Fondée en 1918, l'Association des Amputés de guerre offre des programmes en constante évolution. D'abord vouée aux anciens combattants amputés, elle aide aujourd'hui l'ensemble des personnes amputées, y compris les enfants. Il reste encore beaucoup à faire pour veiller à leur offrir les membres artificiels leur permettant de mener une vie active et autonome. Les programmes de l'association, entre autres celui pour les enfants amputés, existent grâce à l'appui du public au Service des plaques porte-clés, lequel a retourné plus de 1,5 million de trousseaux de clés perdus. L'organisme ne reçoit aucune subvention gouvernementale.
