Yasin is a baby from Tanzania. He is an only child to his young parents.
Yasin was diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. His legs are bowed outward. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, he has difficulty walking.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Yasin. The procedure is scheduled to take place on September 6. Treatment will hopefully restore Yasin’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Yasin’s mother says, “Thank you very much you have brought hope to us.”
