"Rather than talk to other people about my pain, I would talk to these paintings." Amir, 16, deftly paints on canvas with his mouth after being born without the use of his arms and legs.
After the 2015 earthquake in Nepal, he was found in his rural home by Karuna Foundation who brought him to the capital. Amir was one of over 5,000 children with disabilities identified by UNICEF and partners which helped spotlight the needs of hard-to-reach children, especially in rural Nepal.
