Amos underwent surgery for a birth condition so he can walk well.

Amos underwent a successful bilateral leg surgery. The surgery enables him to walk well, stand for a long time, and enroll in school without any challenge. His family is relieved that he has finally had treatment.

“I am grateful for the support you rendered to us, we are looking forward to seeing him walking like other children,’’ Amos’s father told us.

Amos is a three-year-old boy and the third born in a family of four children. Amos’s father works at construction sites while his mother works at home to take care of their home and family.

Amos was born with a condition known as Blount’s disease, or bowing of both legs. The condition has greatly affected his mobility and he cannot walk for a long distances or stand. He is almost school-aged, but unfortunately cannot attend school because of the severity of his condition.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH) is helping Amos to receive treatment. Amos is scheduled to undergo surgery on May 9th. Now, AMH is requesting $1,224 to fund Amos’s procedure. After the surgery, he will be able to walk well, stand for long periods of time, and even begin school!

Amos’s father shared, “my desire as a parent is to see my son walking like other children. Any support will be highly appreciated.”
