‘People moved out and stayed’

Droves still flock to rural hospital run by Durangoan’s kin
The Hôpital Albert Schweitzer has hired several amputees at the hospital who no longer have a home in Port-au-Prince. They have or will receive new prosthetic limbs from the Hanger Klinik, another nonprofit in Haiti that is working to restore mobility to the thousands of amputees who lost limbs in the earthquake one year ago.
Thousands of people who fled Port-au-Prince after the earthquake last year went to the Artibonite Valley, where the Hôpital Albert Schweitzer is located. In addition to providing health care to a third more people, the hospital has added community development services such as youth sports programs to help the more than 18,000 displaced refugees in the district. These young women, in a huddle with their coach, are members of the new girls Deschapelles soccer team.
