BRAC Limb and Brace Center in Haiti

Commitment by

BRAC

In 2010, BRAC, along with partners including Child Relief International and American Jewish World Service, committed to develop a Limb and Brace Center in Haiti. Building on its experience running sustainable limb and brace centers in Bangladesh, the center will provide prosthetics and orthotics services for Haitians, especially those injured in the 2010 earthquake. Over the next five years, BRAC aims to serve 4,500 patients, thus allowing adults to participate in livelihood activities and for children to go to school.
