Khendo and Nirmala: Friendship and rehabilitation
Meet 6-year-old Khendo and Nirmala, 7, from Nepal. They first met at Bir Hospital in Kathmandu after they both tragically lost a leg in the earthquake that struck the country in April 2015. For the last three months they have laughed together, gone through their rehabilitation together and awaited their new artificial limb legs together. In that time they have formed a very special bond.
