Evance is a five-year-old boy with Down Syndrome. He loves playing and making new friends. He is the youngest in a family of eight children. Evance’s parents are both farmers who own a small piece of land. The family lives in Tanzania.
Evance 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, Evance traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Evance’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, Evance will be able to walk, play, and attend school without pain.
Evance’s mother says, “I am grateful that my son will be able to walk and attend school. Thank you all so much for giving him a chance at a normal life.”
