Hanger Ivan R. Sabel Foundation Awarded for Efforts in Haiti

Haitian Ministries for the Diocese of Norwich recently presented the
Hanger Ivan R. Sabel Foundation with a $1,500 check to assist with the
Foundation’s charitable efforts at its prosthetic clinic in Haiti. Haitian
Ministries also gave the Foundation a Tree of Life – a large metal artwork
crafted in Haiti – in recognition of the Foundation’s continuing
efforts to help Haitians in need.

Soon after the January 12th earthquake, the Hanger Ivan R. Sabel
Foundation, in conjunction with its partners in the Haitian Amputee Coalition
– Physicians for Peace, Hanger Orthopedic Group, the Harold & Kayrita
Anderson Family Foundation, the Catholic Medical Mission Board, and Donald Peck
Leslie, MD, of the Shepherd Center – founded a long-term prosthetic and
rehabilitation center on-site at the Hospital Albert Schweitzer, in
Deschapelles, Haiti.

Since its founding on February 22, the practitioners of the Hanger Ivan
R. Sabel Foundation Clinic have provided customized prosthetic solutions to
nearly 700 Haitian amputees.
