Repost from @nytmag - The homemade prosthetics of Afghanistan tell a graphic story. Not just of limbs lost: in the fight against the Soviets, the civil war the destroyed Kabul, or the 10,000 Afghans killed or injured by war in 2017 alone. Since 1988, the @icrc has provided 109,030 new prosthetics to replace limbs. These appendages, photographed by Ross McDonnell in 2012, were left behind after patients received polyproylene-based prosthetics, provided free of charge by the I.C.R.C. On each, we see the traces of the person who wore the artificial limb — the nicks and scars of their daily struggles, the decorative flourishes added by the hands that made them and the bodies they joined.

“When you lose a leg, you don’t just lose a leg - you lose a piece of your heart, you lose a piece of your mind, you lose a piece of your self-confidence,” said Alberto Cairo, head of our physical rehabilitation programme in Afghanistan. “All this has to be restored, and all together this makes dignity.” . Since opening the first center in 1988, Alberto and his team have helped an estimated 180,000 patients with prostheses and physiotherapy sessions. .
