Young Palestinian amputees train in a Gaza City swimming pool under the instructions of Majdi al-Tatar.
Tatar, who lost his right leg after a road accident during his childhood, trains Palestinians who lost their limbs during the ongoing conflict with Israel and help them maintain physical activity through the Palestine Children Relief Fund, a non-governmental organization providing physical and psychological services for disabled children in Gaza Strip. Any sport... is a great way to rehabilitate people and get people back into society.
More than 6,500 people have been shot by Israeli forces during a year of weekly mass protests along the Gaza border, according to Palestinian figures. More than 125 have had amputations and many others are permanently disabled.
