Unscramble the Blue Letters

Today, I would like to tell you a story, the story of a big change, and the story of the eppleo who made this change possible. I arrived in Afghanistan in 1990 to work in a hospital for war victims. And then, not only for war victims, but it was for any kind of atneipt. I was also working in the orthopedic tcnree, we call it. This is the place where we make the legs. At that imte I found myself in a strange situation. I felt not quite ready for that job. There was so much to learn. There were so many things new to me. But it was a terrific job. But as soon as the fighting intensified, the physical abhntlteroaiii was spesdendu. There were many other things to do. So the orthopedic center was lsedoc because physical rehabilitation was not considered a priority. It was a strange sensation. Anyway, you know every time I make this speech — it's not the first time — but it's an ntimeoo. It's something that comes out from the past. It's 21 years, but they are still all there.

But as soon as the fighting intensified, the physical rehabilitation was suspended. There were many other things to do. So the orthopedic center was closed because physical rehabilitation was not considered a priority. It was a strange sensation. Anyway, you know every time I make this speech — it's not the first time — but it's an emotion. It's something that comes out from the past. It's 21 years, but they are still all there.
