About one in ten Afghans is disabled, a legacy of decades of war and poor health care. In 1999, Dost Mohammed Khairy contracted Guillane Barre Syndrome - an infection that attacks the nervous system. He is one of 9,000 Afghans given refuge in the US since Sept 11. He established an organization here to help the disabled in Afghanistan. Recently he made his first trip back.

This report is part of Pulitzer Center-sponsored project "A Journey Home: Afghanistan through the Eyes of a Returning Refugee" (http://bit.ly/t8LjCX).
