Slideshow: Fabienne Jean, Three Years After The Haiti Earthquake
All week long we've been bringing you the story of Fabienne Jean, a dancer who lost her leg in the earthquake in Haiti three years ago this month.
A prosthetic technician from Boston heard her story and fitted Fabienne with a fake leg. He tried to help Fabienne recover in other ways too. He hatched plans to help her start her business, buy a house and open a dance studio to raise money for Haitian amputees.
But as reporter Jacob Kushner discovered, Fabienne's recovery has been a slow, frustrating process.
Photographer Nick Kozak worked with Kushner and photographed Fabienne Jean. He documented her everyday life. View the slideshow above to experience Fabienne's day-to-day routine through Kozak's lens.
In the final installment of our series, Jacob Kushner tells us where she is now.
Below, you can see Fabienne rehearsing with other dancers at Haiti's National Theatre in December.
