Topiwo is a 17-year-old boy who lives with his mother, father, and siblings in Tanzania. Topiwo is hardworking and energetic but has difficulty walking due to a condition called bilateral genu valgus, commonly known as “knock knees.” This condition increases Topiwo’s risk of early osteoarthritis and can only be corrected by surgery.

Topiwo loves animals and enjoys looking after his father’s cattle. Although Topiwo has only completed primary school, he dreams of continuing his education so that he can become a veterinarian.

Topiwo’s parents are subsistence farmers and must spend their earnings on supporting their family. For $500, we can fund Topiwo’s operation and enable him to walk normally and live a healthy life.
