Roseme’s Story

We want to share the story of Roseme. She is a little girl, 10 years old, who had a congenital malformation so her right leg was nearly half the length of her left and she needed crutches to get around. rosemene_pre-amputation.jpg

In 2017, FONTEN together with Hope for Haiti clinic managed a free surgery so Roseme could have a suitable stump to use a prosthesis. After several months of therapy and accumulation of the materials and funds necessary to build the prosthesis, Roseme and FONTEN were ready to fit her new prosthetic leg. With this she is able to walk without crutches and looks forward to a more normal life like other children her age.
