Hero Therapist Gives Hope to Afghan Disabled (w/Video)
"If you see someone coming here depressed, and you see if after a few minutes he's a little less depressed, and then after a few days he's even better, and then he starts smiling again -- that's a huge reward."
- Alberto Cairo, humanitarian/physiotherapist
Kabul, Afghanistan - Alberto Cairo describes himself as moody, temperamental, impatient and pushy.
But to the disabled patients he has treated for 19 years at the Red Cross Rehabilitation Center -- most of them victims of violence in this war-torn country -- he is an angel of mercy.
