Three-year-old Andrea was born in Tanzania with clubfoot, a congenital condition that causes his foot to twist inwards.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation (AMHF), informs us that Andrea has been walking on the sides of his foot. This has caused him to experience pain and difficulty walking. “If not treated, Andrea will be at risk of developing osteoarthritis at a young age,” AMHF shares.
Working as farmers, his parents do not make enough money to provide for their six children and pay for Andrea’s treatment.
For $1,160, we can help Andrea to get treatment; including all surgical and medical fees, leg casts and four months at a rehabilitation center.
During surgery, Andrea’s feet will be repositioned so that he can walk normally. AMHF expects that Andrea will have “improved gait and reduced risk of developing osteoarthritis” after treatment.
“I pray that my son will have normal feet, ability to walk properly and that God will grant him a long and successful life,” says Andrea’s mother.
