Survivor Stories
Tedla Gehebriwet - Eritrea

Tedla Gebrehiwet was born in 1971 in a small village, Wekidba, that is 5 km away from Asmara (the capital city of Eritrea). He stepped on landmine during the war between Eritrea and Ethiopia, when he was eleven years old. As a consequence he lost his right leg and his right arm, as well as his left eye. His amputations are below the knee and below the elbow, respectively.

Mr. Gebrehiwot graduated from the University of Asmara in Sociology and Anthropology in 1999. After that, he worked in the Ministry of Labour and Human Welfare, as a part of his national service.
