Victim of a war she doesn’t understand

Salam is a 7-year-old girl from Syria. In autumn 2015, she was injured by an explosive remnant of war and rushed to a hospital in Jordan, where doctors amputated her left leg and part of her right foot. Handicap International has fitted her with a prosthesis and now provides her with regular physiotherapy care.
