We can continue to provide much needed healing services in Haiti because of companies like Evidence In Motion.
Louisville, KY (PRWEB) October 31, 2012
Evidence In Motion (EIM) is proud to announce their continued support of Neighborhood Engagement’s relief efforts in Haiti. Neighborhood Engagement is a non-profit group that supports PTHelpForHaiti.org and OTHelpForHaiti.org. Both organizations are dedicated to “Build Haiti Better” and send volunteer physical and occupational therapists to Jacmel, Haiti.
EIM has provided monetary donations to Neighborhood Engagement since 2009 on behalf of each student who joins their Orthopaedic Physical Therapy Residency, Sports Physical Therapy Residency, and Orthopaedic Manual Physical Therapy Fellowship. EIM’s recent donation was made on October 10, 2012 to help fund PTHelpForHaiti.org/OTHelpForHaiti.org’s physical and occupational therapists in Jacmel, Haiti.
The Jacmel Clinic sees an average of twenty-five to forty patients per day and provides a full spectrum of physical therapy services. This clinic is staffed by a full-time American physical therapist, Haitian rehab technicians, transporters and interpreters, and volunteers from both the United States and Canada. The Jacmel Clinic does not charge for equipment or treatment and is 100% donor supported.
“We can continue to provide much needed healing services in Haiti because of companies like Evidence In Motion,” states Larry Benz, PT, DPT, MBA, OCS, founder and partner of the Jacmel Clinic. “Their continued monetary support helps the clinic keep its doors open to the community; providing rehab services and hope to an area devastated by natural disasters.”
