In the wake of the earthquake which hit Haiti, HI immediately launched an emergency response intervention to assist the people affected by the disaster. Moïse, 4 years old, injured his left foot when his house was destroyed. He was rapidly amputated. Shortly after the operation he met with the teams from HI and the Healing Hand for Haiti rehabilitation centre. The young boy underwent rehabilitation sessions, received a prosthesis and learned to walk again. Since 2010, his prosthesis has been changed regularly to keep up with his growth. Today, Moïse is 12 years old. He lives in the town of Mariani (Port-au-Prince) with his parents and is very close to his little brother Sonel, 9 years old. His father drives a tap-tap and his mother takes care of the family. He is a happy, enthusiastic child who goes to school and plays football with his friends.
