Rachael is the 1st born in a family of three children. Her favorite subject in school is English and she aspires to become a lawyer in the future. Rachael’s mother is a vendor, selling chips and samosas in her small shop while her father works as a mechanic. They live in a one-roomed rental house in a rural village.

She was born healthy, however, at the age of 11, Rachael’s mother noticed an unusual bending of her right leg towards her left leg; a condition she came to know is called genu valgum or “knock knees” deformity. Rachael cannot walk well as her right leg knocks the left. She is unable to play with her friends and while at school, her self-esteem is affected because she cannot walk like her peers.

This surgery will be of great impact to her. Rachael will be able to walk well, play with her friends, her self-esteem will be boosted, and she will continue with her education to achieve her dream of becoming a lawyer.

Rachael says, “I would love to be treated so that I can walk well, wear skirts like my friends, and continue with my education without interruptions.”
