Mary is an eight-year-old student from Kenya. She is a quiet and humble girl and the second born in a family of three. Mary’s father is separated and she lives with her grandmother. Her grandmother is a farmer, while her father is currently unemployed.
Mary has clubfoot of her right foot, a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Mary traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on March 15th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,286 to fund Mary’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily.
Mary’s grandmother shared, “it is my joy and desire to see my namesake granddaughter walking without any difficulty. Any help will be highly appreciated.”
