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.

Oral cancer patient Lu Wen-jhong, 57, gets his operation wound checked by a doctor at the Chang Geng Hospital in Linkou, Taipei May 14, 2010. Lu has been unable to eat any solid food for months after his operation as he is unable to open his mouth wide enough to chew. The doctor later told him that this condition is not operable and the only way to face it is through rehabilitation. 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.

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.

Silence reigns in this sleepy village nestled high up in the Himalayan mountains in northern India and where the majority of residents are either deaf or mute. Each of the 47 families in this village in Jammu and Kashmir state have a least one member who can neither hear nor speak.
