South Africa Hands

Rich van As, a South African carpenter, developed the plastic hands for the disabled making use of plastic parts at a fraction of the cost of other hand prosthesis on the market. Flippie Engelbrecht lost both hands during a epileptic fit when he fell into a fire in 2012, and was given the new plastic hands by Rich van As for free. (AP Photo/Schalk van Zuydam)
