Every day, thousands of videos from around the world catch global attention for different reasons.
Recently, a video of an Afghan boy dancing joyfully got added to that list. However, what makes it special is the reason behind his dance.
The little boy, identified as Ahmad, had got a prosthetic leg and was seen celebrating it in the heart-warming video.
Take a look.
According to Roya Musawi, the woman who shared the video on Twitter, "He come from Logar (Afghanistan) and lost his leg in a landmine. This is how his life changed and made him smile."
The 21-second video, which was shared on the social media, was shot in front of Ahmad's ward at an International Red Cross orthopedic center in Afghanistan.

The spirit of the little boy is being appreciated worldwide.
Moreover, people, via their comments, also thanked the International Committee of Red Cross (ICRC), which ensures humanitarian protection for victims of armed conflict, for helping the child and for their work in Afghanistan.
Vow,and sometimes we forget the real problems of real people dealing with them on a daily basis. Nothing compares to this happiness and suffering too. So happy for the young man. Bless him and may he stay happy forever.— Kashif Abbasi (@Kashifabbasiary) May 7, 2019
While the boy is being appreciated for his resilience and is definitely lucky to get an artificial limb, 927 children lost their lives in the conflict-torn Afghanistan in 2018.
As per the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan, in 2018 the country documented 10,993 civilian casualties including 3,804 deaths and 7,189 injuries.
The numbers show a 5% increase in civilian casualties compared to 2017.
Michelle Bachelet, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, said apart from lives lost, "the dire security situation is preventing many Afghans from enjoying their economic, social and cultural rights, with thousands of children already handicapped for life because of attacks on schools and medical facilities."
