Naylah is a three-year-old girl from Tanzania. She is the fourth child in a family of five children. She has a twin and they are very close to each other. Naylah and her four siblings are raised by a single mother as their father abandoned them. She has found a means to earn a living by cooking and selling fried fish by the roadside. However, the money she makes is not enough to cover all their expenses. Naylah was diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. Her legs began bowing outward, impacting her mobility. Several factors could cause this condition, such as growth disorders, vitamin deficiencies, or excessive fluoride found in contaminated drinking water. As a result, Naylah feels pain while walking and gets tired easily, spending less time playing with her siblings. Her mother is unable to find treatment for her due to their financial situation. A well-wisher who saw Naylah informed them about our medical partner's care center, Kafika House, where they can seek treatment for free. He also provided transportation money to get to the facility. Doctors examined Naylah and determined they can provide surgery and care for her. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $880 to fund corrective surgery and treatment for Naylah at Kafika House. The procedure is scheduled to take place on May 28th. The treatment will hopefully restore Naylah's mobility, allow her to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease her risk of future complications. Naylah’s mother says: “I hope my daughter gets treatment. It will be good for Naylah and her twin to grow older enjoying life together. I hope this treatment will make her legs better.”
