Marie Tibaudo, 87, walked as fast as possible across the five-metre length of her living room, concentrating so as not to fall. Olivia Westbrook-Fournier, one of two nurses from the Mobile Gerontological Team in the Cher département (county) in central France, was wide-eyed as she timed the exercise. It was as if her patient had pulverised a world record. “Fourteen seconds!” she exclaimed. “Three weeks ago you took 23 seconds. It’s enormous progress, your willpower is paying.”
Since January 7, 2023 our colleague and friend Mortaza Behboudi has been imprisoned in Afghanistan, in the Taliban prisons.
We do not forget him and call for his release.
