Innocent is a baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of two children.
Innocent was diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. Her legs bow outward so that her knees touch. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, he has difficulty walking and he complains of pain after a long playful day.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Innocent. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 14. Treatment will hopefully restore Innocent’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Innocent’s mother says, “Our son’s condition is getting out of hand please help my son.”
