about Winfred's recovery.

September 7, 2021

Winfred is a humble and shy 18-year-old girl. She is the second born in a family of three children. Her mother is single and works as a farmer.

About eight years ago, when Winfred was 10 years old, she developed a change in her legs so that the bow and began experiencing pain when walking long distances. Since then, her condition has worsened.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Winfred receive treatment. On September 16th, she will undergo corrective surgery at AMH’s care center. After surgery, she will be able to walk much more easily and will no longer experience pain when walking long distances. She will be able to continue with her life like her peers. Now, her family needs help raising $1,224 to fund her procedure.

Winfred shared, “I would love to walk well like other girls and continue with my normal life.”

Kelvin

Kelvin is a bright second grade student and the last born in a family of five. His mother told us that Kelvin likes playing football, reading, and running together with his friends. Kelvin's mother is now a single mom after she separated from her husband many years ago after he engaged in drugs and frequent drinking. “He could not provide for the family anymore...” Kelvin's mother told us. Currently, Kelvin's mother has a small makeshift hotel, known as a Kibanda, where she sells tea, porridge, and mandazi (doughnuts) which is just enough to sustain her children and pay for their house rent. Kelvin has a hemiplegic cerebral palsy condition. When Kelvin was one year old, his mother noticed a bending of the left foot, and as he continued to grow his left foot worsened. Recently, while Kelvin was passing by the market in the village, a lady spotted him and inquired about where he lived. She later called Kelvin's mother and advised her to visit CURE hospital. At the hospital, Kelvin was scheduled to undergo surgery. Fortunately, Kelvin traveled to visit our medical partner's care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 19th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Kelvin's treatment. After treatment, he will be able to walk well and play with friends. He will also be able to continue with his studies uninterrupted. Kelvin's mother said, “I am seeking support because I cannot pay the hospital bill, if I can be helped, I will be grateful to see my son walking normally.”
