Amani is five-month-old boy from Tanzania who is already very active. Amani is the only child to his young parents who are very happy to have a new member in their family. Both parents depend on small-scale farming for a living.
Amani has clubfoot of both her feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Amani traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 11th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $935 to fund Amani’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to wear shoes and walk easily.
Amani’s mother told us, “We wouldn’t want to see our baby grow up with disability which can be treated but the cost is expensive for us please help us.”
