BENEFITING: VILLAGE OF VISION FOR HAITI FOUNDATION

EVENT DATE: Jan 12, 2011

Holly Fink

THE STORY:

They are PEOPLE. They are DAUGHTERS. They are WOMEN. They are SISTERS. They are MOTHERS. They are PROUD. They are STRONG. And they are amputees, asking for nothing more than the chance to mother their children and regain the power to live independent, dignified lives.

Wednesday, January 12th marks the 1st anniversary of the devastating 7.0 magnitude earthquake that struck Haiti claiming lives, ruining homes and leaving a trail of destruction in its wake. Thousands of amputations were performed in the days and weeks after the earthquake in a heroic effort to save the lives of those with limbs that could not be salvaged.
The Haitian Amputee Mother's Alliance (HAMA) is dedicated to providing high-quality prosthetic limbs to the approximately 60 amputee mothers in the V-V-H-F program, along with the fitting, treatment, training, education, maintenance and support necessary to allow these women to integrate their new limbs into their new lives.

HAMA will provide each mother with a comfortable, high-quality, adjustable prosthesis designed and custom built especially for her and best suited to her particular needs.

The materials, treatment and support will be provided in accordance with the leading-edge integrated care model pioneered in the US prosthetic community. The goal is to provide the inspiration, knowledge, materials and care that will enable each amputee mother who enters the prosthetic rehabilitation program to leave with the tools necessary to lead an active, fruitful and productive life.

The donations made to HAMA will directly fund the prosthetics portion of the project.

As a group of bloggers, our goal is to put our energy behind this project and host an online fundraiser so that one woman in Haiti can get the limb she needs (3K). Any donation, large or small, will bring us closer to our goal of helping these women.

Thank you so much for your donation. With very little improvement in Haiti in the last year, hope is dwindling all over the country, except here where hope is truly contagious.
