Rahma is a child from Tanzania. She is the first born in her family. Rahma’s mother is a stay-at-home mother and her father is a public bus conductor.
Rahma was diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. Her legs are bowed outward. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, it is difficult for her to walk.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Rahma. The procedure is scheduled to take place on February 9. Treatment will hopefully restore Rahma’s mobility, allow her to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease her risk of future complications.
Rahma’s mother says, “Thank you for treating my daughter. God bless you all.”
