Project Daniel

When he was 14 years old, Daniel Omar lost both of his arms in a bomb explosion while he was tending his family's livestock in Sudan.  After losing his arms, Daniel thought his life was not worth living.  In 2012, Mick Ebeling, CEO and founder of Not Impossible, came across Daniel's story and decided to help by starting Project Daniel.  He and his team traveled to Yida Refugee Camp to meet Daniel and work with the doctor who had performed his amputations to set up the world's first 3D printed prosthetic lab.  Daniel was fitted with a custom printed prosthetic arm and is now able to perform tasks that were previously impossible, such as feeding himself.  Not Impossible then worked to train local Nubians in 3D design and 3D printing so that they could create more prosthetics to aid the many other amputees who are victims of Sudan's brutal civil war.
