Sometimes it’s OUR family that’s like the Kendalls.
A year after our conversation Duley managed to gain the mobility and money to get back Afghanistan, taking the opportunity to not only shed a series of beautifully composed spotlights on the medical shortcomings and prejudice facing those disabled by landmines in the country but also to make a documentary film about his journey and the people he met. Introducing the film on Facebook last night Duley said: “If ever a film was made with blood, sweat and tears; this is it. ”The documentary shows Duley returning to Afghanistan to discover that treatment for Afghan amputees - a significant number of whom are children - is tragically lacking.
I couldn't be prouder to have been part of its making and hope it creates the impact it deserves. Despite the prevalence of civilian victims with either one or more limbs missing there is no strategic medical plan in place to help them.
