AMDA's Rehabilitation Activity for Haiti Earthquake Survivors

Immediately after the 2010 Great Haiti Earthquake, AMDA commenced its activities starting with an emergency relief operation termed as AMDA Multi-National Medical Mission (AMMM) and continued with rehabilitation programs and projects.

There were two main rehabilitation projects implemented by AMDA; namely Prosthesis Project and Friendly Soccer Program. AMDA provided prosthesis to the people who lost their limbs due to the disaster. AMDA also promised to hold a friendly Soccer Program and also a yearly gathering for three consecutive years, following the disaster, for the participants from the above mentioned 2 main activities.

On April 21st, 2013, a yearly gathering for beneficiaries of prosthesis and Soccer Program was held in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti. 53 people attended this event and enjoyed spending time together.

At the gathering, the chairperson of AMDA Haiti explained about AMDAs activities as well as the past and future projects of AMDA Haiti. One participant commented, "After receiving prosthesis from AMDA in December 2010, I felt very happy with my life and hope to find a job and return to a normal life." Also, children from soccer project expressed their wish to play soccer with Japanese children and hold a party together one day in the future.
