The Artists: Santos

Santos is a talented woodcarver living in Makeni, Sierra Leone. Santos' right hand was amputated during the civil war in Sierra Leone when he was only 13. At 14, he came to a local international nonprofit, saying that he didn't want money, he wanted the tools and the skills to carve wood. Since then Santos has dedicated his life to woodcarving and has become quite proficient, not at all allowing his disability to slow him down!
