Alberto Cairo: "Dignity Cannot Wait"

A TED talk by Alberto Cairo, whose clinic in Kabul has provided artificial limbs for Afghan citizens since 1990.  Cairo's message is not just of physical rehabilitation, but of human pride and the healing power of self-worth. Delivered in Geneva in November 2011 as part of TEDxRC2; the RC stands for Red Cross and Red Crescent.
