Monica is a first grader at Mapema primary school in Kenya. She is the oldest in a family of 2 children. Her family hails from Kimahuri village in Nyeri County. Her mother is a single parent and she washes clothes and does garden work for the neighbors to support her family.
Monica has clubfoot of her left foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Monica traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on March 16th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,224 to fund Monica’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily.
“My joy would be to see Monica undergoing for surgery. The little I get is not enough even to cater for my bills at home. I would kindly request for support,” Monica’s mother told us.
