Survivor Stories
Jalaluddin - Afghanistan

Jalaluddin was working as a farmer when he stepped on a landmine. After the accident he was hopping around the field on one leg trying to get out when soldiers saw him and transported him to a hospital. He was in hospital for three months recuperating, and once he was released he moved in with relatives in Kabul to be close to the orthopedic center. Having received a prosthetic leg and rehabilitation, Jalaluddin went back to work as a farmer. When the Taliban came into power he moved to Pakistan where he had once lived. Since the fall of the Taliban, he has moved back to Kabul and is working as a shopkeeper.
