Description : Pao was the breadwinner of the family, but there was no work in the camp. And to earn a living, meant risking his life. "I felt scared whenever I had to go to the forest and cut wood," he says. "But I had no choice. I needed to support my family."

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.”
