Evaline is a charming seven-year-old girl. She is being raised by her grandmother, while her mother is married and lives in a different part of the country. Evaline’s grandparents are small scale farmers. They harvest their own food and sell vegetables for extra income.
Evaline was born with clubfoot of her left foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. She experiences difficulty walking and carrying out daily activities. Her grandmother has not yet enrolled her in school for fear of discrimination.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Evaline to receive treatment. She traveled to visit AMH’s care center where surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 10th. Now, AMH is requesting $935 to fund Evaline’s surgery. With successful treatment, she will be able to walk easily and is excited to enroll in school.
Evaline’s family member shared, “this condition made her father deny her but I would be glad to see her treated and grow up as a normal child.”
