Christina is a young child from Tanzania. She is the youngest in a family of three children. Unfortunately, Christina’s father passed way. This left Christina’s mother with three children to support without a job. She started a small business of cooking food in local hotel to support her children.
Christina was diagnosed with genu varus. Her legs are bent outwards at the knees. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, she experiences discomfort after walking for a short distance.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Christina. The procedure is scheduled to take place on October 10. Treatment will hopefully restore Christina’s mobility, allow her to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease her risk of future complications.
Christian’s mother says, “ Please help my daughter. My financial state is not good; I am unable to afford the surgery cost.”
