Gordon is a six year old boy, living with his parents and two younger siblings in a one roomed house in the Korogocho area of the capital city. His mother is a homemaker, while his father works as a vendor.
Gordon was born with multiple birth conditions, including spina bifida, and hydrocephalus, as well as bilateral clubfoot. Currently, he cannot stand or walk - or wear shoes - and he has to crawl every time he wants to move about. At a visit to a mobile health clinic, it was determined that Gordon needs surgery to correct his feet. His family cannot afford the estimated hospital bill, and is requesting help to cover the costs so he can get the care he needs.
Fortunately, Gordon’s family traveled to our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on May 30th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,286 to fund Gordon’s surgery and care. After treatment, Gordon should be able to put on shoes, to stand, and to walk.
“I would request the donors to help my son undergo surgery. My desire is to see him grow up like other children,” Gordon’s mother told us.
