Piecing together a fractured Afghanistan one limb at a time

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) rehabilitation center works to educate and rehabilitate land-mine victims and those with limb related deformities in Kabul, Afghanistan. The center helps its patients transition back into society and assists them in finding employment by offering micro-credit financing, home schooling and vocational training. The clinic itself is unique in that all of the workers are handicapped. The Kabul center has registered over 57,000 patients, with more than 114,000 registered country-wide in all of their centers since its inception 25 years ago.
