Lilongwe, Malawi.


In Malawi, people with disabilities are among the poorest of the poor. Statistics indicate that many of them probably live on less than a dollar a day. Some Malawians call them "opunduka" and "odwala" "“ the crippled and the sick. While many have tried but failed to bring relief to the handicapped, one wheel chair-bound activist, Mussa Chiwaula, has succeeded. Today, he's the executive director of the NGO the Federation of Disability Organizations in Malawi, an organization founded in 1999 to promote the rights of people with disabilities.
