I came across this man perched in a park, accompanied by his wheelchair, looking sombre, i was curious to hear his story.
Olaf’s legs were amputated under the knee, my first thought was that he may have been involved in an accident of some sort. Olaf went on to explain that his legs became severely infected due to unsatisfactory hygiene which was also the cause of his eviction five months ago as he refused to wear diapers due to embarrassment.
We spoke for many hours about how he was adjusting to his new life on the streets. His health issues are getting worse due to lack of amenities and limited mobility, his groin area is becoming infected from defecating on himself.
