Ester is a six-month-old baby from Tanzania. She is quiet and gentle. Ester lives with her parents, who are small-scale pastoralists with 20 goats and five sheep.
Ester has clubfoot of her right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Ester traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Ester’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, Ester will be able to walk without difficulty and attend school when she grows up.
Ester’s mother says, “I am positive that Ester will be treated and will grow up well and attend school.”
