Description : In 1992, Pao went with a friend to gather wood behind the refugee camp they lived in. The next thing he remembers, a loud explosion. "I looked down at my leg and saw that my foot had been destroyed."

ICRC website, 28.02.2018, Photo gallery: “In Cambodia, the ICRC is providing assistance to people and communities victimized by landmines. The struggling country continues to be impacted by the legacy of war.
In the 50 years of the ICRC's presence in Cambodia, the organization has supported the construction of medical facilities, developing an orthopaedic project helping people like this man receive prosthetic limbs.
Many of the 150,000 disabled people in Cambodia have lost limbs to landmines and face difficulties reintegrating into society.”
