Tatu is a girl from Tanzania. She is the fifth born in a family of ten children. Her parents are farmers.
Tatu has clubfoot of both her feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Tatu traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 8. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Tatu’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily.
Tatu’s mother says, “We didn’t want our daughter to grow up disabled, but due to financial challenges we couldn’t take her to hospital. Please help our daughter.”
