Supports amputees

Dear Editor:

The War Amps Key Tag Service is celebrating a milestone this year – its 75th anniversary!

The service has not only been reuniting Canadians with their lost keys, it has been helping to make a difference in the lives of amputees. To date, more than 1.5 million sets of lost keys have been returned to their owners. Although it’s a free service, donations enable the association to operate its many programs for amputees, including veterans and children.

I was born a right arm amputee and was enrolled in The War Amps Child Amputee (CHAMP) Program when I was two years old. The War Amps has given me the confidence to achieve anything I put my mind to. I was taught that no matter the physical or emotional challenges that come with being an amputee, they can be overcome.    

The War Amps 2021 key tags are being mailed to Southwestern Ontario residents next week. The donations received are truly life changing for amputees across the country.

I would like to express great gratitude and a tremendous thank you for your support!    

Kevin Delaney,
War Amps Regional
Representative, Ontario
