Haiti: Reduce Cholera and diarrhea in children

Jul 10, 2013

Haiti Programs Update (October 2013 - November 2013)

The MTI-Haiti Advantage Program is going gang-busters to finish out the 2013 calendar year. Volunteer teams of rehabilitation specialists (physical and occupational therapists, artificial limb & brace makers, doctors, nurses) come to train our staff. The Stroke & Diabetes Prevention and Management Program continues to impact lives through education regarding the importance of blood pressure and blood glucose control, the risk factors for Type 2 Diabetes, and risk factors for stroke. We continue with the ongoing therapy for kids like Chrismael who has cerebral palsy, young men like Maxene who requires long leg braces and crutches to walk and infants  like Stephesen who has multiple issues, including cerebral palsy and clubfoot. The Advantage Program is arranging for Stephensen to be seen by an excellent Haitian Pediatric specialist in Port-au-Prince.
