Veronica is a student from Tanzania. She is the third child in a family of six children.
Veronica has clubfoot of both her feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Veronica traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on December 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Veronica’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily to school and when helping her.
Veronica’s mother says, “Please help my daughter, I feel as if my family has been cursed with this condition. We had lost hope of any kind of treatment but now you have rekindled our hope.”
