Ivor Prickett/UNHCR/Panos

Tripoli, Lebanon

Mohammed Khalaf (22) talks on a mobile phone in the home he lives in with his wife and young child in Tripoli. He was injured in March 2013 when his family home in Qousyr, Syria was hit by government shelling. His uncle was killed and many of his family were injured in the same incident. Initially he only lost one arm but due to poor care his second arm became infected and had to be amputated. He is hoping to receive asylum in Denmark so that he can have prosthetic arms fitted. On living with his disability, he says: 'It is very hard, but as long as you believe in god its ok.'
