Hussein was walking to school with his friends in an area contaminated by mines, unbeknownst to them, when one of his friends stepped on a landmine – that friend died, and Hussein and his friend Mohammad were gravely injured. Both injured boys lost one of their legs, but through CHAMPS and MLI’s Survivors’ Assistance programs, MLI was able to provide them with prostheses so they could walk again and attend school. Hussein and Mohammad joined the CHAMPS Team in Iraq – and now they participate in teaching Mine Risk Education to others in local schools and villages
