The Italian Doctor

For the last 15 years the italian doctor Alberto Cairo has had one aim in life: to restore the dignity of every mine victim in Afghanistan. Seeing five different governments and surviving two civil wars, Alberto has been head of the Red Cross Orthopaedic Centre in Kabul for the past 15 years. Together with his staff of 150 disabled workers he has helped more than 50.000 mine victims walk again, and he has fought a tough struggle to reintegrate them into the war-torn Afghan society.
