Baraka is a baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of five children. Baraka’s parents are both subsistence farmers growing maize, beans, and cassavas.
Baraka has clubfoot of his right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Baraka traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 13. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Baraka’s clubfoot repair. When he grows up, he will be able to walk easily.
Baraka’s mother says, “We were told that you help children with conditions like my son’s. Please help our son.”
