Prosthetic and wheelchair repair van in Cambodia

27 January 2017

Cambodia is one of the countries most affected by landmines in the world, it has the highest proportion of landmine amputees.

Sophal (41) stepped on a mine when he was 18. He has been using a prosthetic leg since.

Villagers like Sophal live too far from any physical rehabilitation centre. The ICRC launched the first prosthetic and wheelchair repair van in Cambodia. This van transforms into a mobile repair centre in ten minutes!
