Caren is a five-year-old girl from Tanzania. She is one of six children in her family, including her twin sister, who she loves and adores dearly. Caren is currently in nursery school.
Caren was born a very healthy child but as she grew, her legs started to bend outward, making it painful and difficult for her to walk. Her parents never took her to the hospital, fearing treatment would be too expensive. If not treated, however, Caren will continue experiencing pain and discomfort when walking.
On September 15, Caren will undergo surgery for her leg condition. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $838 for Caren’s medical care.
Caren’s father says, “I am grateful for this treatment, I can’t wait for my daughter to start walking well again.”
