Elizabeth is a young student from Kenya. She is a class 6 pupil and enjoys reading and playing with her friends. Elizabeth is the youngest in a family of four. Her mother is a single parent and supports the family through farming.
Elizabeth has clubfoot of her right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Elizabeth traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 18. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Elizabeth’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk well and wear shoes to school.
“My prayer is that Elizabeth will one day walk well like other girls and continue with her normal life. Please help her walk comfortably,” Elizabeth’s mother shared with us.
