A team from scuba-diving rehabilitation charity Deptherapy has completed what it describes as its biggest and most successful taħriġ programme to date, involving 14 armed forces veterans with mental and/or physical injuries sustained in service.

Aġġornament: DEPTERAPIA GĦAL GĦALKOL FL-2023

Over a week at Roots Red Sea in El Quseir, Egypt, six programme-members qualified as PADI Ilma miftuħ Divers, with all but one going on to complete the Advanced OWD course. A further five completed their PADI AOWD and Deep Speciality, and all 11 completed nitrox courses and a night dive.

The other three veterans took part as Instructors and Divemasters, including Chris Middleton, who lost both legs in Afghanistan. Currently a divemaster, his aim is to become the first double-amputee PADI Istruttur.

Erba’ minn ħamsa tal-membri tal-programm ibatu minn Disturb ta’ Stress Post-Trawmatiku akut u jistgħu jitqiesu “diffiċli biex jintlaħaq”, Jgħid Depterapija, li waqqfet sistema ta’ Buddy Peer Support għalihom.

Qal li membru wieħed kien żvela waqt il-vjaġġ li qabel kien ilu sitt snin ma ħareġ mid-dar; ieħor li l-ġrajja kienet l-ewwel darba mid-dijanjosi tiegħu li kien seta’ jitkellem dwar dak li ġara lilu.

“If you had asked me just over a year ago if I would be helping to teach fellow-veterans to scuba-dive I would have laughed,” said Andy Searle, a bilateral amputee and already-qualified diver who assisted with the taħriġ. “Last week I had that opportunity. How does that feel? I’m not sure I can answer that as my emotions run so high.

“Ġejt appoġġjat ġewwa u barra mill-ilma mit-tim tad-Deptherapy, li bidlu ħajti. Li ngħin lil ħaddieħor, ħuti midruba fl-armi, huwa biss l-akbar unur.”

Chris Ganley, li qabel kien tal-1 Battaljun The Rifles, tilef driegħ f’inċident ta’ mutur u kkwalifika bħala OWD u AOWD f’Roots. “Kienet esperjenza inkredibbli – l-għadis huwa bħal li tidħol f’dinja oħra. Esperjenza eċċezzjonali li tibqa’ miegħi għal ħajti. L-appoġġ li jagħtik it-tim huwa lil hinn mid-deskrizzjoni. Deptherapy jgħidu li huma familja; Issa jien parti minn dik il-familja.”

Deptherapy’s next taħriġ programme in June will take 12 members on a Red Sea liveaboard. More about the chariry can be found hawn
