About the Work

The civil war in Sierra Leone (1991-2002) not only killed more than 50,000 people, it also led to thousands of innocent civilians having legs, arms or hands forcibly amputated by rebel soldiers. Or from landmines and bullets. The Flying Star Amputees are a group of football teams across Sierra Leone born out of the adversity of this war. All the players are victims of civil war amputations, and football has brought them happiness, confidence and hope for a better future for disabled people in Sierra Leone. Football gives the amputees a space to talk with each other & find like mindedness in their experiences & stories, as a way to get over the emotional pain of the experience
