Donation of Prosthesis Machinery to Mission of Hope Port au Prince, Haiti

Right after the great earthquake in Haiti in 2010, AMDA dispatched team of doctors from its chapters all around the world. The emergency medical relief continued for months and then AMDA continued to serve Haitian people with various projects such as Prosthetic Project and friendly soccer program, etc. As a consequence AMDA-Haiti was also born.

As part of the prosthesis project AMDA dispatched a Japanese prosthesis technician to Haiti for one year and ran a support program to produce prosthesis limbs for the people who lost theirs due to the earthquake. With the generosity of Chigasaki Chuo Rotary Club AMDA purchased the machinery to set up a prosthesis laboratory in Port au Prince and purchased the materials across the border from Dominica Republic. The program was completed successfully and AMDA produced artificial limbs for about 30 or more Haitians who suffered from the earthquake.

At the end of the program AMDA`s prosthesis technician started his assignment with another organization called Mission of Hope in Haiti. In order to serve the public of Haiti AMDA decided to donate the laboratory machinery and equipment to Mission of Haiti. The donation ceremony was held at the premises of Mission of Hope in Titanyen about 1.5 hours from Port au Prince. President of AMDA Haiti officially handed over the following list of items to Mr. Jean Lubin St. Marc, Executive Director- Mission of Hope, Haiti.

1.An Oven 2.A vacuum machine 3.A carving machine 4.A sewing machine 5.A heating gun 6.Prosthetics components and 7.Many other tools for prosthetic operations

Mission of hope presented AMDA with an official acknowledgment and appreciation message and both organizations agree to continue the relationship for possible future collaborations.
