Gody is a two-month-old baby boy from Tanzania. He is the youngest of his mother’s two children, and one of his father’s five children. Gody’s father works at a butcher shop and is able to get by and support his family.
Gody 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, Gody traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 16th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $935 to fund Gody’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
Gody’s mother shared, “we had a little money that we thought we could use to treat our baby but all that money has been used up with no successful treatment. Kindly help correct my baby’s feet.”
