Florence an 11-year-old girl from Kenya, and she is the firstborn in a family of three children.

Florence was born with cerebral palsy, which is a condition that affects her muscles, primarily her legs. In addition, Florence also has clubfoot, and as a result she is not able to independently walk from one place to another by herself, so she currently uses a wheelchair to get around.

The team from our Medical Partner’s Care Center AIC Cure International Hospital met Florence at one of their mobile clinics near her home village. Florence needs to undergo triple arthrodesis surgery, which will relieve pain in her foot and provide her with more stability. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is helping Florence to receive treatment and needs help raising $1,224 for her surgery.

Florence’s mother is excited that after the surgery, Florence will “be able to walk and continue with her life like other children.” She added, “We are appealing to people of goodwill to help our daughter undergo surgery.”
