Muksin received surgery and casting to correct his club foot.

The corrective surgery of Muksin’s left foot was a great success! The operation is followed by a series of castings while the wound heals. The doctors expect that Muksin will eventually achieve full function of his foot. Soon, this eight-year-old will be walking normally and enjoying his childhood to the fullest! Thank you for giving Muksin a reason to smile even wider!

Muksin told our medical partners that he can’t wait to play football. He’s trying his best not to get out of bed, “I feel like I can already start kicking the ball. I can’t wait!”

Muksin is an eight-year-old boy from Tanzania who is perpetually cheerful despite his inability to walk or run like normal kids. Muksin was born with club foot, a painful condition where the foot turns inward at the ankle. Even though it’s difficult, he does his best to keep up with other children. He says he dreams of becoming a football player.

Muksin’s parents work hard to afford basic needs. His father is a carpenter and his mother works at a local bar. They deeply wish for their son to be able to walk normally, but without treatment, his condition could get worse and progress into osteoarthritis.

Just $715 will provide this happy young boy with surgery to lengthen his Achilles tendon and casting that will help him walk and run properly. Let’s help this future football player gain full mobility!
