Susan is a five-year-old girl living in Kenya with her parents and four siblings.

When Susan was three years old, she started limping and was unable to walk well. She was diagnosed with rickets, which lead to her developing genu valgus, also known as being “knock-kneed.”

Seeking treatment through our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, Susan is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her “knock-knees” on July 10. Her family is requesting $1,165 to cover the total cost of her procedure and care.

Following her recovery, Susan will be able to walk comfortably, and she will be able to go to school and play with the other children.

“I am kindly appealing to you to help my daughter have surgery,” Susan’s mother shares. “Currently we cannot afford the amount stated. I would like to see her going to school and playing with other kids at home. God bless you for your help.”
