Sheila is a 13-year-old bright and outgoing girl. She is a partial orphan who lives with a guardian that helped to rescue her from a difficult situation growing up. Sheila lives at a special place alongside 10 other children who come from a similar background. Her guardian says that Sheila’s clubfoot condition limits her from her potential.
Sheila was born with clubfoot and the condition has affected her mobility and lowered her self-esteem in a way that she cannot connect with her peers. Her guardian and family are not financially able to support the surgery and are appealing for financial assistance.
Fortunately, Sheila traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on December 6th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Sheila’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, Sheila will be able to easily interact with her peers and have a high self-esteem.
Her guardian says, “I would very much appreciate the support that may be provided for Sheila’s care. She will be able to explore her full potential.”
