Paulo is a baby from Tanzania and the youngest in a family of three children. Both his parents depend only on livestock keeping for their living. Their income is very small to be able to support them well, thus they struggle a lot.
Paulo has clubfoot of his left foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Paulo traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 31st. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Paulo’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk well when he grows up and wears shoes.
Paulo’s mother says, “Our income is too small to be able to afford our baby’s treatment cost, please helps us.”
