Children’s Medical Mission of Haiti
St. Vincent’s Shapes a Vision for the Future
One of the most significant developments at St. Vincent’s during the past year has been the shaping of its vision. Not only will it serve the nearly 300 handicapped children who call St. Vincent’s school or home, it aspires to become a training center for the entire country – an advocate for including handicapped persons in all aspects of Haitian life.
Beyond those broad goals St. Vincent’s plans to rebuild it facilities better than ever, to establish a vocational school for deaf children, and to become one of Haiti’s premier centers for prosthetics and physical therapy.
These ambitious goals have been laid out by Pere Sadoni Leon, Director of the Centre, with support from a growing number of organizations that have stepped up to help since the earthquake in January 2010.
Scenes from the December 2012 celebration at St. Vincent are of the International Day of Recognition of Handicapped Persons.
