Highness underwent surgery to heal her conjoined toes.

Highness has had a successful surgery that has helped release her toes that were webbed making it difficult to wear shoes and walk. Due to her toes, before surgery she would have pain when walking and she couldn’t wear sandals. Through this surgery, Highness can now wear any shoes and comfortably walk without going through pain or difficulty.

Highness’s mother says, “God bless you so much for making it possible for my daughter to have this surgery that has helped correct her toes. My daughter will be so happy once her wounds heal and she is able to wear sandals and walk.”

Highness is a charming, active, and energetic three-year-old girl. She is the last born child in a family of four children. Highness’ father is self-employed through his small business of selling earrings and necklaces around different neighborhoods. Highness’ mother works as a helper at a local food joint.

Highness was born with two conjoined big toes on both feet. She experiences pain when walking, and her feet have also started curving. Due to how her toes are positioned, it has been difficult for her to wear sandals and closed shoes.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Highness receive treatment. On September 2nd, surgeons at their care center will perform a surgery to help her walk easily with no pain. At the moment, she seeks help to fund her $639 procedure.

Highness’ mother says, “One thing my daughter would love so much is to wear sandals—something she can’t. I have found her so many times trying to wear her siblings’ sandals but she can’t walk with them. Please help her.”
