Timotheo is a child from Tanzania. He is the first born child in a family of three children, and he is almost seven years old. He is expecting to start his primary school education next year. Timotheo’s parents are subsistence farmers.
Timotheo has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Timotheo traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 7. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Timotheo’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, Timotheo will be able to walk easily.
Timotheo’s father says, “I wish I knew sooner that there is hope for my son’s treatment. I just hope that he will be okay and able to walk normal.”
