A Goderich teen is benefiting from a program run by an organization that's probably best-known for issuing key tags and returning lost keys.
15 year-old Joao-Victor Alves is a partial right-hand amputee from birth, and is supported by the War Amps through the organization's Child Amputee -- or CHAMP -- program.
Kids taking part in the CHAMP initiative are eligible for financial help in securing assistive and recreational devices.
Joao-Victor also participates in CHAMP seminars, which discuss topics like the latest prosthetic technology and how to deal with bullying.
The War Amps started in 1918, to help amputee soldiers returning home from the First World War.
