Emmanuel is a baby from Tanzania. He is the youngest in a family of four children. His parents are small-scale farmers who farm maize, bean, potatoes and vegetables.
Emmanuel has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Emmanuel traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on October 15. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Emmanuel’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
His mother says, “We were made to believe there was nothing that could be done to our son. You have brought us hope. Please help us.”
