Hassan is a 13-year-old from Tanzania. He’s a gregarious and active teenager who enjoys going to school and spending time with his siblings.
In 2008, Hassan fell from a tree and broke his left femur. Although he received treatment for the injury and the bone healed, Hassan began developing clubfoot. If left untreated, Hassan will never be able to wear shoes or walk pain-free. Unfortunately, Hassan’s mother is a small-scale maize and rice farmer and can’t afford to pay for her son’s treatment.
On July 14, Hassan will begin treatment for his clubfoot. He will first undergo surgery, then receive a cast, followed by physical therapy. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund the treatment.
“I will be very happy if Hassan will receive treatment support and be able to attend school properly and fulfill his life dreams,” says his mother.
