Christella: Standing Tall After the Haiti Earthquake

Christella was at school when the Haiti earthquake struck. The school collapsed, killing many of her classmates and crushing her left leg. After her leg was amputated, Handicap International found her, and gave her a prosthesis and physical therapy. Five years later, Handicap International is still helping Christella and other Haiti earthquake victims stand tall.

    It was a heart touching story about christella. I have read from blogs on your helping hands. I don’t know how to appreciate you people are extremely working hard to help all disabled people who lost themselves in accidents and disasters.
