THE MAN OF THE TREES

Daniel Balima is a senior horticulturist from Tenkodogo, a small African town, where he works and lives with his family. He fell ill with polio as a child and although he grows up without legs, he goes into the garden every day to work. In over fifty years of activity he has brought more than a million trees to life.
