Josephine and her twin brother are the third and fourth children to their parents. Josephine’s mother says she is a happy child who enjoys playing with her siblings.
Josephine’s feet are turned inward. Because she can walk, her mother never sought treatment for the condition. Recently, our medical partner’s community outreach officer traveled to Josephine’s village, where he diagnosed her with clubfeet and spoke to her parents about treatment options. Now, she is scheduled to undergo repair surgery on January 24.
Josephine’s parents are small scale farmers who herd goats and cows. However, their income is limited, and they need help to provide treatment for their daughter. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,160.
Josephine’s mother says, “I hope that my daughter will be able to walk straight and attend school.”
