New Program Makes Prosthetics Available to All Haitian Children Who Lost Limbs in Earthquake
Date:8/4/2010

oran, chief of prosthetics for Medishare; and Chris Lewis, president of the American Wheelchair Mission.

"Almost eight months after the devastating earthquake, we must not forget  the children of Haiti, who still need our help, and who continue to be so greatly affected by this disaster," said Supreme Knight Carl Anderson. "We believe that this program for the injured children of Haiti will not only
alleviate their mobility issues in the near term, but also will provide real, concrete hope for their future."

Each child will receive three prosthetics and physical therapy over the course of a two-year treatment program. The program will be administered by Medishare, which operates the University of Miami/Medishare hospital in Port au Prince, and is the premier children's medical facility in Haiti.
