Ndichaenya is a boy from Tanzania. He is a cheerful and social boy. He is the fourth child in a family of five children.
Ndichaenya has been diagnosed with genu valgus. His legs bow inward so that his knees touch. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Ndichaenya. The procedure is scheduled to take place on October 30. Treatment will hopefully restore Ndichaenya’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Ndichaenya’s father says, “We have not been able to take my son to the hospital due to our little income we get from farming and his condition keeps worsening as days go by. Please help my son if it’s possible.”
