Every player on the Sierra Leone Flying Stars Amputee Football Team has a story to share.

These athletes have lost limbs from land mines that were planted during the country’s violent civil war, but that hasn’t stopped them from playing the game that renews their spirit.

Today, the Flying Stars compete against disabled teams from around the world, and with every kick of the ball, they instil hope in other amputees and help to dispel a lingering social stigma against those with disabilities.
