Meet three-month-old baby Billman. He is a happy and gentle baby boy and lives with his extended family in Tanzania. Billman’s parents are small-scale farmers and they cultivate maize to sell and for their own consumption.
Billman was born with bilateral clubfeet. This is a congenital condition in which the feet turn inwards at the ankles. This will affect Billman’s ability to walk as he grows up due to pain and discomfort.
Billman will begin corrective treatment of his clubfoot on October 13. He will undergo surgery, cast changes, and post-op physiotherapy sessions.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is asking for $890 to help Billman walk without difficulty and be able to engage in daily activities such as going to school and working when he grows up.
“We are very happy to see our child get treatment,” say Billman’s parents.
