A Young Survivor of Haiti's Earthquake Tells Her Story

Haiti / 30.07.12

Mirlanda Pierre was ten years old on 12 January, 2010. She was at the home of a family friend in Port-au-Prince when the 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti.

After her father helped rescue her, he brought her to Médecins Sans Frontières. Her right leg was crushed and had to be amputated. She also suffered severe injuries to her left hand.

She endured several operations and physiotherapy for a year and a half at Médecins Sans Frontières' temporary tent hospital.

Today she is at Médecins Sans Frontières' Drouillard Hospital for treatment of a bacterial infection in her injured hand.

People in Haiti who cannot pay for surgical treatment have few options. Médecins Sans Frontières provides much-needed free, high-quality care.
