Roovens Monchil is an 11-yr-old boy that received crush injuries to his leg in the earthquake. He’s been in and out of the OR at Haitian Community Hospital, where MedShare has sent medical supplies. They’ve maintained his injury, but the staff knew that if he didn’t get to the USNS Comfort, he would lose his leg, or worse, his life.
Rooven’s story is still a daily occurrence of so many in Haiti, and proof of the overwhelming medical needs that still exists in this country in crisis. We can’t forget the people of Haiti who still need us, and the hospitals that need our life-saving supplies to perform their medical work. Check out this incredible rescue:
