Bislan, 22 years old, was seriously injured in an arson attack in his home town of Valerik in Chechnya. His mother, who ran into the fire several times to save her six children, died as a result of her burns.

Bislan’s hands had swimming-skins between his fingers due to the burn, a crooked little finger on the right and flat scars.

We operated on him twice between April and September 2012.

As a result, Bislan’s hands became functional again but has to wear compression gloves, which he received free of charge from the Orthopädisches Fachzentrum Berlin.
