Zablon is a two-year-old boy from Tanzania. He lives with his mother, grandmother, and two siblings. His mother is unmarried and stays at home to look after the children, while his grandmother works to support the family.
Zablon was born with bilateral clubfeet, a condition in which both his feet are turned inward, making him unable to walk. On February 17, Zablon will undergo surgery at our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre (ALMC), to correct his feet. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for $1,160 in funds to cover the cost of his surgery, labs, and casts.
“I wish to see my child walking normally, in order for him to attend school and be successful,” says Zablon’s mother.
After recovery, Zablon will be able to walk and will become independently mobile!
