Three days after the devastating earthquake in Haiti, a tiny 2-year-old girl named Winnie was pulled from the rubble by an Australian TV crew. At the time, Save the Children medical staff treated her and determined that despite suffering from dehydration, she would recover.
Four months later, I am thrilled to report that Winnie is doing quite well. She is living with her Uncle Frantz and Aunt Gertrude in Port-au-Prince. Her uncle says that she is beginning to talk and is becoming less timid. Winnie will be celebrating her third birthday on June 26.

In the video below, you can see what it’s really like on the ground as we videotape the work of a Save the Children mobile health team in Haiti. The team arrives in a crowded camp called Village Gastron Magron in Port-Au-Prince on Feb. 22, 2010.
The video features Dr. Joachim Abdias on-camera who is treating patients and explaining their medical conditions.
