Haitian Salsa Champion Gets Second Chance to Dance

A wonderful story about Gheorghes, a champion salsa dancer from Haiti who had to have his leg amputated below the knee due to injuries sustained during the earthquake. Thanks to the JDC, Tel Hashomer hospital in Israel and Magen David Adom, Gheorghes was given a state of the art prosthesis and is once again dancing.

Read more about Gheorghes on the JDC Website.

Thank you for sharing this story with me. I dance salsa here in Boston and it is just inspiring to hear of such a recovery and I was really touched to see George dancing again and doing some nice tricks at the same time. He is truly a beacon of hope in Haiti after the Earthquake.
