Our partner Christian Aid Ministries took some wheelchairs they had stored at their U.S. facilities into Haiti – here’s a brief recipient story:
March 25-29, 2010 From the Field (Titanyen, Haiti)
Patrico was the first patient at our recovery hospital. He was trapped and then injured during his rescue when a pick axe went through his foot. People were dying around him, and he saw the rescuers chop off the foot of his friend to save him. He is one of the first injured persons in Haiti to receive a FWM wheelchair.
