Project HOPE has been engaged in rehabilitation activities in Haiti over the past year to help those injured during the 2010 earthquake to fully recover from their injuries and live productive lives. But until now, there has been no dedicated facility for physical rehabilitation, a much needed service for the up to 4,000 amputees now in Haiti. Together with partners CBM, Prosthetika, the Humanitarian Network, and the Avon Foundation for Women, Project HOPE volunteers have assembled three modular buildings at the Adventist Hospital (HAH) in Diquini to serve as Rehabilitation Center. The Center has been named “Chanje Lavi,” which means “Changing Lives” in Creole. Patients are already being treated in the just completed facility, with plans for 1,000 patients to be served at the Rehab Center over the next 18 months, and another 1,000 served through the Center’s outreach services.
