A caretaker paints the hand of congenital Minamata disease patient Kenji Nagamoto as they make a poster at Hotto Hausu, a facility for disabled people including Minamata disease patients, in Minamata, Kumamoto Prefecture, Japan, September 13, 2017. Nagamoto was born in 1959 and was certificated as a congenital Minamata disease patient in 1963. He says his physical strength declined with age due to the Minamata disease. The poster is made for Shinobu Sakamoto, who is scheduled to attend an international conference about the Minamata Treaty in Geneva. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon SEARCH "MINAMATA VICTIMS" FOR THIS STORY.
