Walking the Walk ~ PIH Helps Amputees in Haiti

Partners in Health (PIH) salutes recovering Haitian amputees...
"After she lost both her legs in the January earthquake, Carmen was determined not only to walk again, but to help others regain their mobility."
The huge January quake in Haiti crushed many limbs, many which needed to be amputated in order to save the patient. But this has led to great demand for affordable prosthetics, which is one reason I'm a big supporter of MIT's D-Lab Developing World Prosthetics activities!
