Laizer is 17 years old and a happy guy who loves to play with his siblings. He is the fourth born of his mother’s eight children and does not attend school yet due to his disability.
Laizer was diagnosed with a condition called Right Varus that affects the alignment of bones in his legs. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Laizer experiences pain at the end of the day and cannot walk for a long distance, including to school.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), can help him finally heal. On March 22nd, Laizer will undergo corrective surgery that will restore his mobility, allow him to participate in various activities, and significantly decrease his risk of future complications. AMH is requesting $880 to fund this life-changing procedure.
Laizer’s mother shared, “I am happy to know that his leg can be corrected. This will help him walk well and stop having pain.”
