Iman stepped on a landmine and suffered the amputation of her entire right leg. Her family could not afford a prosthetic leg for her, she had never been allowed to attend school, and had no vocational skills before MLI found her, she had little hope for the future. After MLI provided her with a prosthetic leg, Iman’s self-confidence grew, along with her determination to do something with her life. She participated in MLI’s Vocational Sewing Course and learned to sew beautifully (see the dress she sewed in the picture)! Iman now has hope and is able to sell the items she sews to help support herself and her family.
