Manise's small shop

Manise Zephyr was 25 when the the earthquake buried her. She spent three days under rubble and 22 unconscious. She lost an arm and underwent nine operations to recover. With her prosthetic arm she could not work in a restaurant as before, so ECHO's partner Handicap International supported Manise in starting a small business. With the earnings, she could rent her own house and take care of her son.
