Inspiring Young Haitian Boy Can Finally Play Catch For The First Time Now That He Has A New 3-D Printed Hand!

| Filed under: Tech TalkHealthAmazingHeartwarming

a young Haitian boy got a new prosthetic hand, fresh off the 3-D printer!!

A 12-year-old Haitian boy was born without fingers and abandoned at age 3.

That's just so heartbreakingly awful!!

That young boy, Stevenson Joseph, has been living at an orphanage since then — with almost no hope of treatment or anything.

Until he met John Marshall, a software engineer on a charitable trip to Haiti.

John knew he had to do something for Stevenson, so he spent months designing the perfect, 3-D printed prosthesis.

It was fitted to the young boy last month and things are going great!

Stevenson said:

"It is a great hand. Now I can take a balloon with it. I can score at basketball. I can hold a TV remote and push my friends on their wheelchairs. I can hold a water bottle, a bag. I like it a lot."

That's so amazing!!

We're so glad that a good person went down to a country that could use a few helping hands, and literally gave a child a helping hand!

Humanity rules!

    We’re so proud of everything John has accomplished. He’s now working to build a four-room school in a desolate part of Haiti. You can help him reach his new goal by making a donation at
