Hands for Africa has been sadly moved by the devastation, death and amputations in Haiti caused by the 7.0 Magnitude earthquake. When Hands for Africa heard about the hundreds of daily amputations in Haiti, “an amputate or die” choice as a result of earthquake, some victims with rusty hacksaws and vodka as no other instruments or medicine was readily available; we decided to step in and make a difference with these new wave of amputees. Knowing that we specialize with working and helping amputees in Africa and being very cognizant of the immediate urgent needs of the Haitian Amputees, we did not hesitate for a second in assisting where we could.
These waves of thousands of new amputees in Haiti are in immediate need of prosthetics, wheel chairs, walking canes and crutches. Together we will raise money, the same way we do in Africa and restore lost hope in Haiti by providing these much needed supplies. Please join Hands for Africa and make a donation of any amount to help the Amputees of the Haitian Earthquake. We appreciate your support. God Bless you.
