Christian is a one week old boy from Tanzania. He is the last born child in a family of two children. His parents depend on small scale farming for their living with no other source of income.
Christian has clubfoot of his right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Christian traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 14th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Christian’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
Christian’s mother says, “We would love our son to have normal feet and grow into a normal child not having to go through discrimination. The cost is too high for us to afford please help.”
