Magdalena is a 4-month-old baby girl from Tanzania. She is the last born child in a family of three children. Her parents are small-scale farmers selling vegetables for a living.
Magdalena has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Magdalena traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 21st. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Magdalena’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily and wear shoes when she grows up.
Michael’s mother says, “We are unable to afford her treatment cost due to financial challenges please help our daughter.”

Magdalena underwent life-changing bilateral clubfoot treatment.
Magdalena’s clubfoot manipulation and casting are going on well and her feet are showing great progress. She is currently on her fourth cast change and she will be having her fifth cast change today. Through this treatment, Magdalena will be able to learn how to walk like other normal children without the challenges she would have gone through while learning to walk due to her feet being wrongly positioned. She will now be able to grow into a strong woman without a disability.
Magdalena’s mother says, “I can already see a great change in my daughter’s feet. Soon her feet will be normal and all thanks to you for helping fund her treatment cost which we couldn’t afford. God bless you.”
