Rehabilitation care critical for earthquake survivors

In Haiti, Humanity & Inclusion and its partners are providing rehabilitation care to people injured in the August earthquake. Some patients are healing from broken bones, while others are recovering from amputations.

Specialized rehabilitation for earthquake-related injuries and long-term physical therapy are critical to ensure full recovery and prevent future complications. Many of Humanity & Inclusion's disaster response efforts in Haiti are supported by USAID. Below are photos of some of the patients receiving care from Humanity & Inclusion and its partners.
