Sudan: A Donkey and cart story
That is until the National Authority for Prosthetics and Orthotics gave him a prosthetic limb at the rehabilitation centre in Kadugli. Then Khalid got in touch with the Nuba Mountains International Association for Development (NMIAD), a Sudanese NGO that provides socio-economic rehabilitation to persons with disabilities, including survivors of mines/UXO. He received an insurance card and a donkey cart, which brings him about six dollars per day in return for carrying water to the market. "People know me well now, and they trust me, so I've got regular clients". Khalid also has a small repair business where he fixes cars and bicycles, which he is planning to extend in order to generate more income. Khalid thinks it is important that MRE projects continue in the area, and he's taught his children about the dangers of mines/UXO and how to recognize the signs in the area. He himself received MRE from Sudan Campaign to Ban Landmines a few years ago. "We need more projects like NMIAD's to help people with disabilities in the region, since the problems of landmines has affected so many of us."
