Mohamed is a happy, outgoing, and playful 5-year-old from Kenya. He has one younger sibling. Mohamed’s father works as a vegetable vendor, and his mother stays home to care for the family.
When Mohamed was about three years old, his parents noticed a bend on his left foot which continued to increase over time. He has been undergoing physiotherapy but experiences pain and difficulty walking long distances. Mohamed was diagnosed with clubfoot of his left foot, a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. His family traveled to our medical partner’s care center, where surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on May 15th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $1,286 to fund this procedure. Upon recovery, this surgery will allow Mohamed to be able to wear shoes and walk pain-free as he begins school soon.
Mohamed’s father said: “My Joy is to see my son undergo surgery and walk like other children. I will appreciate any kind of support.”
