Jesus Ibarra, 1a 19-year-old engineering student, who was injured during a protest against Venezuela's President Nicolas Maduro's government, lies on a bed inside his home in Caracas, Venezuela August 15, 2017. Relatives of Ibarra said he was struck by a tear gas canister crushed part of his skull, he fell unconscious into the Guaire river on May 1, 2017. He has brain damage and speech impairment. His parents said he was protesting against hunger, medicine shortages and the economic crisis. "I speak to my son a lot, and sometimes he makes me understand it was not worth suffering this, that he regrets it, that it was a mistake. But other times he's clearly telling me that it was worth fighting for a change he believes in," said Ibarra's father Jose. REUTERS/Ueslei Marcelino SEARCH "VENEZUELA INJURIES" FOR THIS STORY.

Geeta, a Hindu deaf-mute woman now in her early 20s, was around 11 years old when she inadvertently crossed the border from India to Pakistan, and lost her family. Since stumbling into Pakistan, Geeta has lived in a home for lost and abandoned children, say officials at the charitable Edhi Foundation. Her long search for her family has captivated the public after a hit film with a similar plot was released last month, and a Pakistani court last week said that the two nations should resolve the issue diplomatically.

A girl who suffers from hearing and speech disorders reacts to the camera at a rehabilitation centre supported by Bhopal Medical Appeal, for children who were born with mental and physical disabilities, in Bhopal November 11, 2014. The rehabilitation centre only treats families they believe have been affected by the Union Carbide gas leak 30 years ago. Human rights groups say that thousands of tonnes of hazardous waste remain buried underground, and the government has conceded it is contaminated. There has, however, been no long-term epidemiological research which conclusively proves that birth defects are directly related to the drinking of the contaminated water.

Tsai Lin-jang, 65, a two-time oral cancer survivor who lost part of his jaw from surgery, poses for a portrait with Reuters on World Health Day, in Taoyuan April 7, 2010. Tsai, a former betel nut chewer, says he may have fought off cancer but it was the discrimination and emotional stress that he faced after his surgery that was the most difficult part to manage during recovery. Close to half of oral cancer patients will need to undergo ablative surgery which will result in facial disfigurement that causes speech impairment and oral secretions management difficulties. Betel flowers and other parts of the palm also contain an alkaloid that causes cancer and chewers are 28 times more likely to get oral cancer than non-users, according to health officials.

Players exercise during a training session for Iraq's soccer team for the hearing and speech impaired in Baghdad, January 29, 2008. Anyone who was born deaf and unable to talk faces a challenge learning to play soccer -- they can't communicate easily on the pitch, can't hear the referee's whistle and very few coaches know sign language. Add the risk of being shot or blown up on the way to training in Baghdad and Iraq's soccer team for deaf-mute players could be forgiven for staying home. Picture taken January 29, 2008.
