The people of Haiti face many challenges after last week's massive earthquake, but the challenges are even greater for people with disabilities.
Since the earthquake has destroyed most of Haiti's infrastructure, it is difficult to imagine how Haitians with disabilities will survive. Most of the hospitals are no more. Roads are ripped apart, or filled with rubble. Family members are probably dead, injured, or their whereabouts unknown. Water, food, and medications are hard, if not impossible, to come by.
