Paskali is a young boy from Tanzania. He enjoys learning. Paskali’s mother sells vegetables at their local market in order to provide for their needs.
Paskali was diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. His legs are bent outwards. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, he struggles to walk and experiences pain and discomfort.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Paskali. The procedure is scheduled to take place on April 13. Treatment will hopefully restore Paskali’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Paskali’s mother says, “Please help my son get well so that he can go to school.”
