Recovering after trauma in DR Congo: Chrispin's story

Chrispin has been hospitalized at the Kananaga General Hospital for months. Like many, his injury got infected before he could be assisted. He is waiting for a second skin transplant, in the meantime he is assisted by the physiotherapists trained by the NGOHandicap International, financed by the EU Humanitarian Aid office.

“I was riding my bike and I came across the militia,” explained Chrispin. “They took everything I had, the telephone, the money, even the bicycle. I started running away from them, but I fell in a well and inside there was a log that perforated my leg”.
