Meet Brian, a 9 year old boy from Kenya. Brian is the only child in his family. He was brought to Watsi’s Partner Care Center AIC Cure Hospital with a congenital foot deformity called clubfoot. This condition has made his walking painful since he has to tiptoe and most of the time loses his balance. He has been to a different hospital, but due to financial requirements, could not be treated. Upon review at Cure Hospital, doctors recommend right calcaneal osteotomy surgery. The surgery will allow Brian to walk more comfortably.
Brian’s parents are unable to raise the cost of surgery. His mother works as a farmer while his father is a carpenter. Their combined income is limited to meeting their family’s basic costs and they appeal for help.
Fortunately, Brian traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on May 20th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,224 to fund Brian’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
“I am requesting for well-wishers to help my son undergo surgery and continue with his normal life,” Brian’s father expressed.
