Description : By chance, the family came to know of the ICRC through their local mosque and the girl has been able to get physiotherapy treatment and home care through the ICRC’s orthopedic centre in Kabul. Her home studies are also organized by the ICRC and soon she will join the wheelchair basketball programme, a recent development amongst the many activities that the centre offers.
