Notre Maison Orphanage

Today we were able to go around the UN barricades in Port-au-Prince and finally make it to Notre Maison Orphanage. Many of the kids that live here have lost their parents in the earthquake. We had an amazing time helping with wheelchair fitting, feeding training, medical assessment, prosthetic and orthotic triage and measurements. It was an amazing day.
Olivia was able to help this young gentleman drink on his own for the first time in his life!:)
Margaret became adopted by a little boy who loved to hug her.

UN barricades were everywhere in town.
