“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.
