Schneily Similien, age 4, moves through the tent camp where his family lives in Leogane, Haiti. The boy's left calf and foot were crushed when the Jan. 12 earthquake rocked his country. For five days, no medical care could be found in the wrecked capital city, Port-au-Prince, and by the time Schneily's parents got him to a hospital, amputation was the only option.
