“I wish I could have my arm and leg back”

Last January, Salah’s family fled the fighting in Mosul. A month later, after returning to the city to check on the family’s house with his older brother, he was seriously injured by an improvised explosive device. Doctors had no choice but to amputate his arm and leg. He is now back at Khazer camp for displaced people, where Handicap International provides him with physiotherapy care.
