Our focus for medical trips is to connect to the community and provide quality healthcare through collaboration and education with our hospital staff, by providing surgical procedures not normally available to the area, and introducing newbies to the culture of Haiti to share beyond the country with friends and family.

Putting Their Best Feet Forward 3:55
Amputees test out their new prosthetic legs for the first time at our Prosthetic Lab at the St. Ard Hospital in Haiti. They will receive the exoskeletal piece of their limbs at a later date. We were amazed by how quickly each of them started walking with no prior physical therapy!
