Bicycle Rehab
Listen to the:
There are an estimated 600,000 people in Afghanistan who have lost arms and legs to landmines left over from the Soviet invasion and the Taliban. Finding work as a disabled person is nearly impossible in Afghanistan. But some enterprising men have managed to form their own business. They overhauled some bicycles to accommodate missing arms and legs and now they run a document delivery service. It’s so successful they’ve purchased two motorcycles to expand their business and attract new customers. Will Everett reports from Kabul.
