Lengelai is a secondary school student from Tanzania who loves geography and mathematics. He has not made up his mind yet regarding who he wants to be when he grows up; he thinks maybe a teacher or maybe a doctor but he is worried because he finds chemistry a little challenging.
He is a third-born child to his mother and one of many children to his father who has four wives and many children. Lengelai does not know half of his siblings but knows that they live elsewhere in another town. Lengelai’s father is a pastoralist and his mother is a stay-at-home mom.
Lengelai has clubfoot of his right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Lengelai traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 11th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Lengelai’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily and wear shoes.
Lengelai says, “My life would be a little bit easier if am able to have this foot treated as I am struggling a lot. Please help.”
