The Sunday Times has launched a Christmas Appeal to raise money to provide physiotherapy and artificial limbs for landmine victims in Afghanistan through Sandy Gall's charity.

"In a poor country where everything has broken down, mobility is vital," says Sandy Gall's daughter, Fiona.

"If by having a wheelchair a disabled man can sell food in the market, he is transformed from a burden on his family to a breadwinner. If a girl can learn to walk with prosthetic limbs, she can help in household tasks and stands a better chance of marrying."
