Ndeye is a student from Tanzania. She is the fourth born child in a family of six children, she is a hard working girl and very social both at home and school. She is currently in class three and her favorite subject is mathematics. When she grows up she would like to be a doctor and help sick people. Her parents depend on small scale farmers and livestock keeping for their living. They don’t have much income but just enough to get them by.
Ndeye 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, Ndeye traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 19. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Ndeye’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily.
Ndeye’s father says, “Her life will be easier if she able to have her legs corrected. Please help she is struggling so much walking to school.”
