Description : Of the dozens of paraplegics whom she visits regularly, many are the victims of traffic accidents, or domestic violence, or have congenital maladies. Others have become paralyzed as a result of the ongoing conflict in many parts of Afghanistan. It is these patients that linger in her mind when she thinks about her long career with the ICRC. β€œIt is impossible not to have patients,” she says carefully after some moments of thought. β€œBut I wish we would not have to have patients because of war.”
