Thursday Video from FLAIR: Healing Wounds with Horses

In 2010, a series of tragic earthquakes struck the Caribbean nation of Haiti, killing 200,000 people and leaving millions more with lifelong wounds and scars. In the midst of the ongoing healing process for the country, throughout which still remain visible marks of lingering devastation, is Les Chevaux Qui Pansent Les Plaies (Horses That Heal Wounds, in English), founded by Anne-Rose Schoen.

Les Chevaux Qui Pansent Les Plaies was the recipient of the FEI Solidarity Award in 2015 for the organization’s work, which focuses its attention on children, particularly amputees, who were affected by the earthquakes.

This short video takes an inside look at this program and the mission of the passionate team involved in it.
