We at EMERGENCY think there is a lot to be grateful for, and today more than ever, we want to thank those who constantly allow us to advance medicine, human rights and equality.
“What happened?”, we immediately ask those who can still speak.
“A landmine. I didn’t see it and it exploded under my feet.”
“I picked up an object that I found in the field and it exploded in my hand…”
“I was walking in the mountains, then there was an explosion and I don’t remember anything…”
EMERGENCY’s doctors and nurses listen to testimonies like these from our patients in Afghanistan and Iraq too often. We provide landmine victims the necessary treatment so that they can continue to live their lives.
