Tarik is four-month-old baby boy and the youngest in a family of four children. Tarik’s parents are small scale farmers and grow food mainly for their own family’s consumption.
Tarik was born with congenital 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 as he grows up.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Tarik receive treatment. His family visited AMH’s care center where surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on July 13th and now, they need help to fund the $935 procedure. After treatment, Tarik will be able to grow up with a full life ahead!
Tarik’s mother shared, “it is through God’s blessings and people’s support that my baby has made it this far. He needs to start treatment for his legs. Please help correct by baby’s disability so that he can grow up like other children.”
