Description : In this video, Niki Clark speaks with Alberto Cairo, head of the ICRC's rehabilitation program in Afghanistan. Twenty-seven years ago, Alberto arrived in Afghanistan for his first ICRC mission. He never left. Instead, he has dedicated his life to helping the disabled dealing with the consequences of nearly 40 years of conflict. He and his team have taught nearly 150,000 people to walk again and through positive discrimination schemes - 90 % of those employed at the orthopaedic center are disabled themselves - has helped return a sense of dignity and pride to those he serves. In this interview, Alberto speaks about what gives him hope, how a "crazy American" changed his perception of play and the lifetime of lessons he has learned from the disabled.
