Wooden crutches made by Ji Sung-ho are seen in Seoul, South Korea, August 13, 2017. Sung-ho is from Hoeryong, near the border with China. He left North Korea in 2006 with a pair of wooden crutches. "I lived as a child beggar in North Korea. I was stealing coals from a train when I fell off and lost my leg and my hand. I had to bring the crutches with me. If I didn't have them, I wouldn't have made it here. The state doesn't help you in North Korea, and people who need crutches make their own. Mine are therefore not factory-made, so they're not perfect and break easily. I had several pairs of crutches but they all broke, and this was the last pair. I used these crutches for 10 years, until I was 25, when I arrived in South Korea. I would steal coal from moving trains and fall off, destroying my crutches. Or I would get beaten up by the police and they'd take and then break my crutches. When they broke, I would make new ones. When I had new ones, I could go back outside. When I first arrived in South Korea I thought about throwing them out. South Korea's intelligence agency gave me a prosthetic leg. My friends said I should throw the crutches out and not think about North Korea. They said I should show Kim Jong Il I was living a new life in South Korea and throw out everything I had from the North. Some asked if I got upset when I saw my crutches. But I couldn't just throw them out. To make my crutches, my friends had given me some wood that they had bought, and someone I knew in North Korea who had carpentry skills had made them. It was my father who added the final touches. There is a lot of love from my North Korean friends and family in these crutches. So I didn't throw them out. The South Korean government gave me some new crutches because the wood from my North Korean ones is hard and painful. But I still keep them, so as not to forget those memories."

A Picture and its Story: Me and my crutches - a North Korean defector's story
Ji Seong-ho, 35, a North Korean defector who appeared at President Trump's State of the Union address this week, is from Hoeryong, near the border with China. He told Reuters last year about the wooden crutches that he left North Korea with in 2006. This is an edited translation of his story: "I lived as a child beggar in North Korea.

A Christmas tree made of 121 old wooden-framed, coloured windows, constructed by local carpentry students is seen in Rakvere, Estonia, November 29, 2015. The humble Christmas tree has a rich history, from evergreen trees used to symbolise eternal life in Ancient Egypt to tree worship among pagan Europeans. The modern version has its origins in Germany, where the song "O Tannenbaum" is still a festive favourite. Today the traditional tree with lights and decorations appears in cities including Washington, Moscow and Beirut. Alternative constructions range from recycled rubbish in Mexico City to old window frames in Rakvere, Estonia. Whatever the shape or size, the message is the same: Merry Christmas.

An instructor teaches at a carpentry workshop at the Larsen & Toubro (L&T) construction skills training institute in Panvel, in the western Indian state of Maharashtra November 18, 2014. India has too few skilled labourers thanks to decades of neglect in training and it desperately needs electricians, bricklayers and plumbers. Larsen & Toubro (L&T), the country's biggest construction company, says it could face a labour shortage next year, just when it plans to ramp up investment after two years of slow economic growth. It has gone out to rural areas to find recruits and bring them to sprawling training centres from which up to 20,000 students graduate a year, many of them joining L&T.

A shop built from planks, where carpentry hardware is sold, is seen at Okobaba sawmill at the edge of the Lagos Lagoon June 24, 2014. Wood, a form of biomass, is the sole source of energy for hundreds of millions of Africans who lack access to modern sources of power, and logging, both legal and illegal, remains a lucrative business that has contributed to the rapid shrinking of Africa?s rainforests and woodlands. Nigeria lost just over 2 million hectares of forest annually between 2005-2010 driven by agricultural expansion, logging and infrastructure development, according to U.N. data. It is also among the biggest users of solid fuel for cooking, with over 120 million Nigerians relying on firewood and charcoal for their cooking needs, according to the International Energy Agency.

Aref Ramadan, an Egyptian carpenter who donated space in his shop for Syrian artist and refugee Riad Al Radi to complete his project on creating the world's largest Koran out of wood, stands at his carpentry shop in Irbid city, north of Amman, November 18, 2014. Al Radi started the project in 2005 back in Syria, but progress was interrupted by the country's civil war. He resumed his project two years ago when meeting Ramadan in Irbid city, after arriving in Jordan with his family. The carpenter gave Al Radi free space at the shop to complete his project. Each wooden page of the massive Koran stretches 3.02m high and 1.85m wide, and weighs 100kg. Al Radi plans to enter his gigantic Koran for the Guinness World Records of the world's largest Koran made from wood. Picture taken November 18, 2014. REUTERS/Muhammad Hamed (JORDAN - Tags: SOCIETY)
