The Italian Doctor

The Italian doctor. Alberto Cairo, is a man with a unique mission: to restore the dignity of every exploding mine victim in Afghanistan. Seeing five different governments and surviving two civil wars, Alberto has been head of the Red Cross Orthopedic Centre in Kabul for the past 15 years. Together with his staff of 150 disabled workers, he has helped more than 50,000 land mine victims walk again, and fought a tough struggle to reintegrate them into the war-torn Afghan society.
