Alazar received surgery to release the stiffness in his legs so he can walk normally.

Alazar’s mother says, “Thanks to God and everybody who helped us. I am so happy that my baby is doing great!”

Six-year-old Alazar lives in Ethiopia. His mother stays at home caring for him, and his father works as a driver. Alazar was born with spastic quadriplegic cerebral palsy with tight Achilles tendons on both feet. His feet are essentially locked in place, which is painful and severely limits his movements.

His mother worries that if he walks on his own, he will fall and seriously hurt himself. She told the doctors, “I want to see him walk and play with other kids.” Alazar’s parents have tried for years to improve his condition, but nothing has worked so far.

The hospital would like to use a simple procedure to release the stiffness in his legs and provide Alazar with braces to ease his ability to walk. With this $1,000 treatment, Alazar won’t feel pain or awkwardness walking. Let’s help Alazar walk without pain!
