Haitian earthquake victim Moïse is back on the football pitch

Emergency Rehabilitation
Haiti

Moïse, 15, lost his leg in 2010, when Haiti was struck by a powerful earthquake. With support from Humanity & Inclusion (HI), he has now been fitted with a prosthesis and benefits from regular adjustments.

Moïse was 4 years old when he was buried beneath rubble by the powerful earthquake that struck Haiti on 12 January 2010. His left leg was amputated a week later. Without crutches, crawling was his only way to move around. After meeting HI’s teams, Moïse was fitted with a prosthesis and attended rehabilitation sessions.

Moïse will be 15 in March 2021. He lives with his parents and younger brother. He stays in contact with HI’s teams and still benefits from rehabilitation support, including his new prosthesis, which is regularly adjusted, and medical care in case he needs revision surgery. Moïse is a lively boy who loves to play football. He also attends school and gets involved in extra-curricular activities, such as basketry or even classical dance.
