Marko is a young boy from Tanzania. He lives in an extended family of twelve people. Marko’s father is a security guard, and his mother is a stay-at-home mother.
Marko has clubfoot of his right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Marko traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 14. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Marko’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk without difficulty.
Marko’s mother says, “I would really like to see Marko get treated and attend school and reach up to university level.”
