Caption: Disability. Disabled man working in his wheelchair repair and refurbishment workshop. This man has had both his legs amputated after an injury sustained in a land mine explosion. The income generated from the workshop enables him to support himself and his family, breaking the cycle of poverty that so many disabled people face in developing countries. Photographed in Cambodia, where the Motivation Charitable Trust began a project in 1993 to design a wheelchair for land mine victims.
