Ngasungui is a five-month-old baby girl and the youngest child in a family of five children. Her parents have five cows and five goats, and they make a living selling milk to their neighbors.
Ngasungui was born 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. A visiting doctor referred Ngasungai’s parents to our medical partner’s care center for treatment.
Fortunately, Ngasunguii and her parents traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. On December 17th, surgeons there will perform clubfoot repair surgery. Now, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is requesting $935 to fund Ngasungui’s procedure and care. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily and her self esteem will not be affected by her condition.
Ngasungui’s mother shared, “I pray that my child gets this treatment and everything goes well. I want her to live and grow without disability.”
