Dennis is a student from Kenya. He is the 1st born in a family of 3 and a Form 1 student at Darajani High School in Makueni County. His mother is a single parent and a peasant farmer and his family lives in a one-roomed house.
Dennis has clubfoot of his left foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Dennis traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 17th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,224 to fund Dennis’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk to and from school without pain and he will also be able to wear shoes.
“I would like to be supported to undergo surgery so that I can walk and wear shoes like other students,” Dennis says.
