Nahashon is a shy three-year-old boy from Nyandarua County, Kenya. His father works as a casual laborer while his mother takes care of Nahashon and his siblings.
Nahashon was born with a condition known as Genu Varum, also known as bow legs. His legs curve outward, causing discomfort and pain when walking. Nahashon has a hard time playing with his friends due to this pain.
Doctors from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), met Nahashon and his family at a local clinic. After an examination, doctors recommended Nahashon undergo bilateral PTO to correct the bowing in his legs.
Nahashon is scheduled for treatment on July 10th at AMH’s care center. After the procedure, he will be able to walk without pain. AMH is requesting $1224 to cover the cost of treatment.
Nahashon’s mother said, “I hope that the surgery will correct his condition and my son continue to walk like other children.”
