Caption: Wheelchair workshop. Technicians working in a wheelchair assembly workshop in Cambodia. They have been trained by the Motivation Charitable Trust, which began a project in Cambodia in 1993 to design a wheelchair for land mine victims. The sustainable workshop provides employment for people, many of whom are themselves disabled. These three men have all lost one or both legs in land mine explosions.
