This smiley chap is Perez from Kenya. He’s four, and outgoing and headstrong for his age. He talks at the top of his voice and runs a lot. “He is always inclined to spend time and hang out with children who are older than him. You will rarely find him with his agemates,” his father Amos says.
Perez was born with clubfoot, a deformity of the lower leg that can bring physical pain and without treatment, disability. His loving parents have worked hard to reverse their sons’ condition. Very early Perez got serial castings on his leg, helping reduce the deformity, thanks to which he is already an active little boy.
$1000 will provide Perez with the final surgery to completely correct his leg. This will allow him to grow up physically able to do anything he wants. Perez’s leg will also look perfectly normal, which is important, as clubfoot carries social stigma in Kenya.
If Perez does not get this last surgery, his deformity will get progressively worse over time, causing him pain and eventually disability. Your donation will give Perez the last leg surgery he will ever need, and allow him to run around his neigborhood on strong, normal legs with his friends.
