Eric is a nine-year-old student from the Philippines. He lives with his parents and three siblings. When he’s not in school, Eric helps his mother with household chores and likes to play with his friends in the neighborhood. Also, as the eldest of four, he is often put in charge of his younger siblings when his parents are not around.
Eric has difficulty walking because he was born with bilateral clubfoot. Clubfoot refers to the internal rotation of the feet and can only be corrected surgically.
In order to help Eric receive the treatment he needs, our medical partner, International Care Ministries, is requesting $1,500 to fund Eric’s surgery, hospital stay, and medication. He is scheduled to undergo clubfeet correction on August 8 at our medical partner’s care center, Tebow Cure Hospital. Surgeons will re-align the ligaments and tendons that are affected by his condition.
“We are looking for a very good result after the operation,” says Rowena, Eric’s mother. “Hopefully his both feet will be corrected after the operation and he will live a normal life.”
