This war amputees' football (soccer) team was established in February 2001 and is made up of 22 players, all residents of Murray Town camp for amputees in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Most of the players were amputated by roaming rebels with machetes and handsaws. Their powerful football skills have transformed them into true athletes.
