An 8-year-old Syrian girl has captured the heart of the internet after a video of her needing to rely on an improvised set of prosthetics, made of sardine tins, to walk around made it online.
Like her father, Maya Ali Merhi was born without lower limbs due to a condition known as congenital amputation. Her family was unable to afford real prosthetic, so her father decided to build her a makeshift one.
