Description : In 2008, this woman was wounded by a bullet and lost the use of one of her legs. The ICRC has supported her through a prosthetic-orthotic care program, which has eventually enabled her to walk again. The financial aid granted by the ICRC in 2018 has also enabled her to buy new sewing machines for her shop. However, the negative consequences of the coronavirus crisis makes it difficult for her to make ends meet.
