Bikolimana is a student from Tanzania. He is the fifth born child in a family of seven children. Bikolimana’s parents are both subsistence farmers.
Bikolimana has 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, Bikolimana traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 31. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Bikolimana’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
Bikolimana says, “I wish to be able to walk to school without difficulty and be able to play.”
