£1 does amazing things

Blesma, The Limbless Veterans is dedicated to assisting serving and ex-service men and women who have suffered life-changing limb loss or the loss of use of a limb, an eye or loss of sight. Since 1932, Blesma has supported limbless veterans for the duration of their lives. Members range from the youngest amputee veterans to those who fought in WWII. Modern medicine transforms the physical injury, but it is a complicated process to treat the emotional trauma and relating lifelong health problems.
