Survivor Stories
Mohamed Ali Hussein - Eritrea

Mohamed is a living testimony to the ravaging effects of landmines on children. Mohamed was injured while playing near his house. He was seven years old. His mother abandoned him during his hospital stay and Mohamed was left to figure everything out by himself. Having lost a leg and one arm, and suffering serious wounds to his other leg, he was unable to get up and go to the bathroom. To solve this problem, seven year old Mohamed decided to stop eating. But now Mohamed is studying law at the University of Asmara. He wants to dedicate his life to achieving the rights of disabled people and to eradicating landmines everywhere.

Mohamed is a 2002 Raising the Voices participant.
