Jackson is a baby from Tanzania. He has a twin sister called Janet. Jackson’s parents were very happy to be blessed with twin babies. Jackson comes from a family of five children and both his parents depend on small scale farming. They have a small shop which helps them supplement their income to be able to support their family.
Jackson 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, Jackson traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 23. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Jackson’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily when he grows up.
Jackson’s mother says, “We don’t want our son to feel any different from his siblings that’s why we want to treat his condition. We are unable to afford the treatment cost please help us.”
