My friend Karl was shot in the back in Haiti in 2011, leaving him with a spinal cord injury. Surviving against the odds he has now started to walk with special braces. He needs help to be able to pay for his new legs and greater independence.

I am a physiotherapist that has been working in Haiti since the earthquake of 2010. This is where I met Karl, a young dad who was shot in the back in 2011 while walking on the street in Haiti.  An "in the wrong place at the wrong time" kind of thing. Life for people with spinal cord injuries in Haiti is very difficult.  Karl has never given up on himself and has been fighting to walk again.  With the help of therapy and some local technicians, he has found a way to get back on his feet again.  Karl needs financial help to pay for the special braces that allow him to walk.
