Video: The impossible becomes the possible

"Binan came and said to me 'stand up'. I asked how. 'Just stand up. You can do it', and I did."
Mohamad didn’t hear the missile coming, he just felt himself being lifted up in the air. After ten days in hospital his severely fractured leg was amputated. On arrival the diagnosis was even worse. When the doctor first saw the severity of Mohamad’s injury and how much blood he was losing, he was told he would probably die. Mohamad knew that wasn’t an option, he had to survive for his son.
With the help of Binan, one of our local physiotherapists in Lebanon, the impossible is becoming the possible.
