Keith needs surgery to release the joints in his left foot and enable him to walk normally. He is a bright, charismatic child who was born with equinus foot, a condition that affects his ankle joint and makes it impossible for him to set his foot flat on the ground. As a result, Keith - who is at the age where he should be starting to walk with confidence - walks with a limp.

Keith’s mother, Benty, says she hopes he will be able to walk and play like other little children. She has tried for months to get him the medical care he needs to walk normally, and she finally found out about CURE’s hospital and the specialized surgery they offer from a friend.

It will cost CURE $1000 to provide Keith with the surgery he needs. We hope to raise the funds needed to cover the cost of his care and set him on a path towards a healthy and happy life.
