Life after losing a limb

26 July 2017

During the Lebanese armed conflict, Ali lost a leg and an arm, while Qassem lost both legs. However, their will to live was stronger than their traumatic experience.

With the aid of the ICRC's Prosthetics Rehabilitation Programme, Ali & Qassem received prosthesis, which helped them pursue their dreams. Ali is now conducting his PhD on International Humanitarian Law, and Qassem is now a renowned romantic writer.
