Enviable approach of Britain in Paralympic sports. See the amounts!

International Paralympic Committee has praised the British Government’s decision to invest GBP 1.5 million to provide running blades for hundreds of amputee children, describing it as “the London 2012 Paralympic legacy in action”. The announcement was made by Chancellor George Osbourne during his budget in London, Great Britain. In it he said the GBP 1.5 million National Health Service Programme will provide activity prosthesis for children and fund new research.

Of the GBP 1.5 million, GBP 500,000 will be spent on new “child sports prosthesis” to allow 500 amputee children to run or swim. Another GBP 1 million will fund development of new forms of prosthetics with the industry, such as 3D printed limbs.
