Moses is a three-year-old boy from Tanzania. He is very active and enjoys playing. His parents are peasants, relying on agriculture for food production, and they also work in a quarry, selling stones for construction activities to generate extra income.
Moses was born with his legs twisted inward and downward. Due to financial limitations, his parents could not seek treatment for his condition when he was young. He learned to walk as he grew, but he now complains of pain.
Determined to help their child, the parents embarked on an eight-hour journey to seek medical care. Moses was diagnosed with 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, our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) can help. Moses is scheduled to undergo clubfoot repair surgery on August 4th. AMH is requesting $935 to fund Moses’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily and enjoy a higher quality of life.
Moses’s mother shared, “I am grateful for the hope you have given us. I can’t wait for my son to start his treatment, and I hope everything will go well.”
