Afghan War Amputees And Civilians Treated At ICRC Orthopedic Center

KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - NOVEMBER 19: ANA commando, Khairuddin Sultan, 21, is helped up by his friend Ala Mohamed who joined the army with him 18 months ago, as an orthopedic specialist moulds a cast for his prosthetic legs at the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) orthopedic centre on November 19, 2012 in Kabul, Afghanistan. Khairuddin, a double amputee, lost his legs when an IED exploded during a joint operation against the Taliban with U.S. special forces. The IED exploded while using a mine detector, sending shrapnell in to his outstretched hand and blowing up his legs. 'If they want me, i would like to go back, but if they (the government) would give me a salary i would like to stay home' said the soldier. The ICRC rehabilitation centre works to educate and rehabilitate land-mine victims, and those with limb related deformities, back into society and employment offering micro-credit financing, home schooling and vocational training to patients. The clinic itself is unique in that all of the workers are handicapped. The ICRC centre in Kabul has registered over 57,000 patients and 114,000 countrywide in all of their centres since its inception 25 years ago. (Photo by Daniel Berehulak/Getty Images)
