Halima is a charming two-year-old girl and the youngest child of two children in her family. Halima’s mother sells fruits while her father works as a mechanic.
Halima was diagnosed with bilateral Genu Varus, meaning that her legs bow outward. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, she has difficulty walking and experiences pain.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Halima to receive treatment. On September 14th, she will undergo corrective surgery at AMH’s care center. Treatment will hopefully restore Halima’s mobility, allowing her to participate in a variety of activities and greatly decreasing her risk of future complications. Now, her family needs help raising $880 to fund her procedure and care.
Halima’s mother shared, “money has been our biggest challenge in seeking treatment for our daughter. Please help us.”
