Sonoeun is a two-month-old baby boy and the first child born to his parents. His father is a construction worker and his mother works in a factory.
Sonoeun has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Sonoeun traveled with his parents to visit our medical partner, Children’s Surgical Centre (CSC). There, surgeons will perform an Achilles tendon lengthening procedure on May 17th. Now, CSC is requesting $385 to fund Sonoeun’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, his feet will develop normally and he will be able to walk more easily as he gets older.
Sonoeun’s father shared, “I want to see my child run and play sports when he is older, but now I hope he heals from the surgery well.”
