Gracious is a one-month-old infant from Tanzania. Gracious is a first-born child to her young parents. Both Gracious’ parents are not permanently employed yet, but they are working as casual laborers. Her father works as a school bus driver and her mother is a teacher who teaches extra classes outside of school hours.
Gracious has clubfoot of both her feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Gracious traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 14th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Gracious’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily and wear shoes when she is older.
Gracious’ parents say, “Please help us get our daughter this treatment so that she may be able to walk well when she grows up.”
