Ezra is a four-year-old from Tanzania who is the first born to a family of three children. His parents are small scale farmers who depend on what they harvest for their daily living.
Ezra has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Ezra traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 7th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Ezra’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
Ezra’s mother says, “We had no idea that our son’s condition was treatable but through education and seeing other children who had similar condition getting treatment, this has given us hope but our biggest challenge now is that we can’t afford the treatment cost please help us.”
