“I didn’t know that the new leg would enable me to walk again and now I can walk freely and go back to school!”

In December 2016, Kuzong lost a leg after a UXO accident.
“One morning I went out to the crop plantation with my older sister. It is about 600 metres away from my home. As we needed to increase the amount of the crops to sell and support the family, we planned on extending the plantation area to plant more sweetcorn. When I was clearing and preparing the land for the corn planting and my older sister was in the forest collecting wood and food, my hoe hit the UXO when I dug the land and it exploded immediately. That was the last thing I could remember” said Kuzong.
“I moved to CMR & COPE after a month in 150 hospital and stayed at CMR & COPE for a week, I didn’t know that the new leg would enable me to walk again and now I can walk freely and go back to school. Thank you very much to CMR & COPE and all donors for the donation that I was given, I truly appreciate this” said Kuzong.
