Daniel is a bright student and the firstborn in a family of three children. He is a social and playful boy. Daniel is currently in class four and his best subjects are mathematic and Swahili. Daniel’s parents are small-scale farmers who depend entirely on what they harvest for their food. They are having a hard time making ends meet so haven’t been able to seek treatment for their son.
Daniel 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, Daniel traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on October 26th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Daniel’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
Daniel says “I will be happy if my foot is treated and I am able to wear shoes and walk normally.”
