Members of H.E.A.R.T. 9/11 have returned to the United States after traveling to Haiti, where they built a health clinic for the Love A Child Orphanage. The nonprofit disaster relief organization built the "fully functioning health clinic in just six days."  The 12-member team was in the country from Feb. 13 through Feb. 19.

Updated: See more pictures on the Love A Child blog.

The clinic will provide the necessary medical services to disabled victims, many of whom are amputees, and their families, according to a news announcement released today from the group.

Bill Keegan, the president of H.E.A.R.T. 9/11, said a team is planning another relief trip to Haiti next month.  For news and details on that trip, visit The MEMO.
