Aisha is a baby from Tanzania. She was diagnosed with genu varus. Her legs bow outward. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Aisha. The procedure is scheduled to take place on July 4. Treatment will hopefully restore Aisha’s mobility, allow her to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease her risk of future complications.
