"I can do anything"
The path to recovery is often long, painful and arduous. The gentle yet confident gestures of Karima and Rahima, physiotherapists in the women’s side of the ICRC orthopaedic centre, help many clients take important steps back towards normalcy. Karima has a special reason to be empathetic. She was 12 years old when four bullets pierced her knee, requiring immediate amputation and a prosthesis.
