17 September 2010, Dhaka. This week, BRAC was finally able to open its limb and brace center and began serving patients in Haiti.



One of our Limb and Brace Center staff fits a
young girl for a prosthetic leg.


We had 10 patients come to the Center on the first day, as well as a few  other guest and supporters, including the Haitian Secretary of State  for the Inclusion of Persons with disabilities, Dr. Michel Pean. Here  are some pictures from opening day:
