Alex Agoston, from Lupeni, Romania, lost both his arms and one foot in a tragic train accident at the age of 8. Despite his ordeal, he's grown into a strong, optimistic young man with a positive outlook on life. Educated at Heidelberg, Germany, he's proficient in operating a computer, and he fluently speaks three languages.

In 2009 the Romanian National Television had a fundraising campaign for a new set of prostethics that included a myoelectric arm. Once the funds were gathered, the CEO of the company in charge of manufacturing his prosthetics vanished with all the money, and he is still on the loose.

Children Aid has started a new effort to raise the funds for his prosthetic arms and leg, allowing Alex to get his life back. The amount is 17,500 EUR which amounts to approximatively US$24,000. See the full video HERE.
