Le Centre de St Vincent pour Enfants Handicapés existe depuis 1945 et sa mission est d'offrir des opportunites aux enfants handicapes au niveau educatif et medical. Depuis 1983, le Centre St Vincent dispose d’un atelier de fabrication et montage de Prothèses et Orthèses. Il est le premier établissement à offrir ces services en Haïti pour Enfants et Adultes. Cet atelier est ratachee a notre clinique ortho-pediatrique.

Depuis le seisme du 12 janvier 2010, le nombre d'handicapes moteurs utilisant des protheses et ortheses a augmente. Il y a aussi une demande constante de soins orthopediques et d'orthoprotheses parmi les jeunes enfants. Les principaux produits de fabrication sont importes des Etats-Unis ou de la Rep. Dominicaine, et ceux en vente sur le marche local le sont a des prix exhorbitants. Ceci augmente alors nos couts de production, limite les appareils que nous offrons, et previent notre clientele (ayant un faible revenu) de se procurer les soins necessaires.

Cette Campagne vise donc a rassembler des fonds pour se procurer du materiel servant a fabriquer des protheses et ortheses.

Nous vous remercions de votre generosite.


****

Since 1945 the St.Vincent Center for Disabled Children’ has provided a quality education and medical attention to handicapped children.  In 1983, St Vincent expanded its program by partnering with an orthopedic clinic to manufacture prosthesis and orthotics. It was the first institution in Haiti to offer these services for children and adults.

Since the earthquake of January 12, 2010, the number of motor handicaps that necessitate prostheses and orthotics has increased dramatically. There is also a constant demand for orthopedic care and orthoprostheses among young children.

Most prostheses and orthoprostheses are imported from the United States or the Dominican Republic, and are offered on the local market at exorbitant prices, making it nearly impossible for our clients (most of whom are living at or below poverty level) to obtain them - thereby increasing demand for our products. This in turn increases our production costs, limits the devices we are able to offer, and prevents our customers from obtaining the necessary care.

We need your help to cover the cost of supplies and production so that we can meet this growing demand.  Please consider a donation to this campaign and give a child or adult the gift of independence and mobility.

We thank you in advance for your generosity.
