Greyson is a child from Tanzania. He is an active and friendly boy, and he is the only child in his family.
Greyson was diagnosed with bilateral genus varus. His legs curve outward, causing him to be bowlegged. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, he feels pain when walking, and he is not able to play with his friends.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Greyson. The procedure is scheduled to take place on June 14. Treatment will hopefully restore Greyson’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Greyson’s mother says, “I would be really grateful if you help my baby be able to walk and play without pain.”
