Marcus Solis from ABC Channel 7 out of New York features the important work being done at the Project Medishare hospital, but especially the work of Certified Prothestists Orthotists (CPO) and volunteer physical therapists as they continue to fit earthquake victims with much needed prosthetic limbs.
The piece also features amputee patient Wilford Messine. After being fitted with his prosthetic leg, Messine began playing soccer. Project Medishare has hired him to help fellow Haitians overcome the physical and cultural obstacles of being an amputee.
Almost four months later, Project Medishare is keeping our promise to continue providing much needed medical care to the Haitian people drastically affected by the January earthquake. Such efforts are still in need of funding so that we can continue to help people like Wilford Messine and others.
