Any person who has a mind, he can do anything

Hashmatullah, 23, lost both his legs when he was six years old and stepped on a landmine in Afghanistan. His father died in the accident.

Hashmatullah is now the administrative manager of the Kabul Orthopedic Organization (KOO), which was founded in 2004 to treat individuals injured by land mines or suffering from other physical disabilities. Afghanistan remains one of the most heavily mined countries in the world.

Last year, Hashmatullah began driving a car by wearing one prosthetic leg and using a cane to press the gas and brakes. He says that driving has given him much more freedom and believes that as long as a person has a mind, they can do anything.
