Neema is a child from Tanzania. She is the last born in a family of four children. Neema’s parents are both subsistence farmers and are barely able to support the needs of their family.
Neema 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, Neema traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on April 12. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Neema’s clubfoot repair. This treatment will allow Neema to walk without pain or discomfort, and she will be able to go to school when she grows up.
Neema’s mother says, “Please help my daughter get treatment so she may be able to walk. I wish I knew earlier about this program, I would have brought her sooner.”
