Shadrack

Shadrack is a three year old boy from Tanzania and the second-born child in a family of three children. He is a friendly and playful boy who is happy and smiling most of the time. Shadrack was born with deformed legs, the right leg had been affected at the foot missing all the toes and is bent inward while the left was missing the lower part from below his knee. This condition has made it difficult and painful for Shadrack to walk, he mostly moves using his knees which has caused him to have wounds most of the time. Shadrack received surgery in November 2019 so he will be able to use prosthetics on the amputated leg to walk. He now needs treatment for his right leg and club foot. This treatment will enable Shadrack to walk better using both his legs and he will not be subjected to stigma as he is growing up. Shadrack’s mother heard about our Watsi partner from an outreach team that visited their village and Shadrack’s mother brought him for help. Shadrack’s mother is a small scale farmer who strives to provide for Shadrack and his siblings on her own since her husband abandoned her after the birth of their last born. She is not able to afford Shadrack’s surgery, she needs help. Fortunately, Shadrack traveled to visit our medical partner's care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 3rd. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Shadrack's clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk more easily. Shadrack’s mother says, “Please help my son so that he is able to walk without difficulty.”
