Walking on trash: Syrian charity turns shrapnel into limbs, February 28

28 Feb 2014

Some 130,000 people have been killed in Syria’s civil war and hundreds of thousands of victims have lost limbs in the conflict. In response the Duma Charity Foundation for Prosthesis in Damascus transfoms the remnants of weapons, plastic mannequins and water barrels into new "limbs”, giving mutiliated Syrians a new lease of life.
