Irene is a young girl from Tanzania. She is an only child to her parents. She loves school and making new friends. Irene is currently in grade four. Her parents are both subsistence farmers.
Irene 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, Irene traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on May 3. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Irene’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily.
Irene says, “I am grateful that I will be able to walk well like all of my friends. Thank you for getting me treated.”
