Description : This twenty years old man (in the centre) lost his leg in a landmine accident while he was herding the family cows along a country road in Chechnya. Like many disabled people in the region he has no job and few propects of work or training. His one lifeline is that he now plays in the Grozny Disabled Football Team, which won the European Disabled Championships.
