Mugisha is a boy from Tanzania. His father is a journalist, and his mother is a stay-at-home mom.
Mugisha has been diagnosed with windswept deformity. His left leg is bowed outward, and his right leg is bowed inward, making it painful and difficult to walk. 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 cannot walk comfortably.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Mugisha. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 2. Treatment will hopefully restore Mugisha’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
His father says, “Please help us.”
