Jordanie Derulus

When the earth started to shake in Haiti on January 12th, 10 year-old Jordanie Derulus was trapped in the rubble of his house with his cousin and his mother. “My mother was screaming, and I just told her to pray,” he said while he was sitting at the Healing Hands for Haiti Prosthetic Clinic, “she died and they pulled me out of the rubble two days later.” Once out of the rubble, Jordanie was brought to the hospital where doctors were forced to remove his right leg. And while Jordanie never lost faith he would walk again, the leg that he has received has allowed him to get back to normal. “I can kick a soccer ball again, and walk,” he explained, “it’s a wonderful thing.”
