Beggar turns capable artisan in Sierra Leone

by jane.williams

In Sierra Leone Joseph Bangura learned skills that took him from a disabled beggar on the street to a creative entrepreneur. He is an artisan who crafts everything from beads to carvings and more. Don’t call him disabled, call him a capable man.

He was still a toddler when he lost mobility in his right leg. Bangura’s mother took him to  a ‘peppeh docto’ – untrained and unlicensed people who pass themselves off as healthcare workers. The ‘peppeh docto’ gave Bangura than just two years old an injection in his right leg.

He never walked again.
