Meet Pauline, 12-year-old, calm girl. She is the 4th born in a family of five children. Pauline is a student in class 7 at Kathunguri School. Our medical partner met Pauline at a clinic in Embu and she was accompanied by her mother.

Pauline’s family hails from Kathunguri village in Embu county. Her mother is a housewife while her father is a farmer. Pauline was born normal and she could walk well like other children however during the month of December 2019, her mother noticed a sudden and unusual walking. She took her to a hospital where she was referred to our mobile clinic in Embu.

The condition on her left foot has deteriorated and is suddenly lowering her self-esteem. “Sometimes my classmates imitate and laugh at me when I walk and I feel bad,” Pauline told us.

She is scheduled to undergo a surgery which will be of great impact on her life and her growth as she will be able to walk confidently. She will also proceed with her education and her self-esteem will improve. Her family is unable to raise the estimated cost of surgery and thus requested for support from well-wishers.

“I request for support for my daughter to undergo surgery. My joy would be to see her walking without any hardship and progressing on well with life.” –Judith, Pauline’s mother noted.
