Isaya is a sweet toddler who is now 3-years-old and comes from a large family. Isaya’s family are nomadic pastoralists and depend on livestock, keeping cows, sheep, and goats.
Isaya was diagnosed with bilateral genu valgus, a condition in which her legs bend so that her knees touch. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Isaya has difficulty walking or running like other children.
On December 10th, Isaya will undergo corrective surgery at our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH). Treatment will restore Isaya’s mobility, allowing her to participate in various activities and significantly decrease her risk of future complications. AMH is requesting $880 to fund her surgery.
Isaya’s pastor shared, “Please help her, as her parents can never afford the treatment cost by themselves.”
