A Helping Hand at the Afya Foundation Clinic

Yesterday we visited a rehab clinic run by the Afya Foundation-- a JDC partner NGO in Haiti providing much-needed care to the physically-disabled.  

We learned from Afya professionals about the lack of resources and education concerning people with disabilities in Haiti as well as the social stigma they face.

We met with Haitian physical therapists who showed us some of the self-made equipment that they use to administer physical therapy (pictured below), as well as with patients who explained how this free clinic was significantly improving the quality of their lives.

We start our big service project today - stay tuned.
