Using a wheelchair in war-torn Yemen is not easy. To get to work each day, 26-year-old Yaarub Eissa rolls over dusty, bumpy roads and up and down steps. He then lifts himself onto the back of a passing motorbike and hooks his folded chair on the back.
“I did not let the disability stop my life. I continued, studied,” Eissa told Reuters, at work welding motorcycle parts in his father’s metal shop before heading to the English lessons he hopes will help him improve his life.
