Noemi is a cheerful three-year-old girl from Venezuela. Her family moved to Colombia two years ago, and she will start school soon. Noemi loves playing with dolls and painting.
Noemi has clubfoot of both feet, a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Noemi’s family traveled to visit our medical partner, Clínica Noel. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on September 28th. Now, Clínica Noel, is requesting $1,500 to fund Noemi’s bilateral clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk more easily and wear shoes.
Her mother shared, “it breaks my heart when she tells me she wants to walk and I see that she is not able to… she is starting school soon and I would love to see her walk and play with her new friends.”
