Maidan Shahr is a town around 50km from Kabul, on the main road from the capital to Kandahar.
Nadim is at the Kabul Surgical Centre, accompanied by his father. One day, when he was walking home after a day working in the fields, a mine exploded and he lost two limbs.
“I hope the doctors will provide him with prostheses and life will be normal again,” says his father. “I always repeat to him: ‘Don’t give up. I want him to be strong. He does not have an arm and a leg. But I am here for him.”
We will never give up. EMERGENCY exists to heal the wounds created by this senseless war.
