It was a fitting day for Beknur Zahibekyly, but not for back-to-school clothes. The enthusiastic 8-year-old received a prosthetic arm made of Legos.
According to his mother, Zaure Bektemissova, finding suitable prosthetics has been a challenge. "Prosthetics are mostly standard," she said. "They are big and heavy, so for his spine, it was not a good idea."
So, she reached out to a popular YouTuber who she thought could help.
