Erick is a 15-month-old happy and playful baby from Tanzania. He lives with his mother and grandparents.
Erick has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Erick traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Erick’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk without difficulty and attend school when he grows up.
Erick’s mother says, “I will be very thankful and happy to see Erick get treatment. I promise to support him with all my efforts and to make sure that he goes to school when he grows up.”
