Diana underwent clubfoot treatment.
Diana is now having her manipulation and casting treatment, which is helping correct her feet. She is currently on her fourth cast change and showing great improvement from when she arrived to the hospital.
Through this life-changing treatment, Diana will be able to grow up a healthy child and without a disability. Her family is feeling relieved that she has been saved from the challenges that come along with clubfoot, like learning how to stand and walk, not being able to wear normal shoes, pain and blisters when walking, and social discrimination.
Diana’s father said, “Thank you for helping correct my daughter’s feet. I wouldn’t have wanted to see her struggle due to disability. God bless you.”

Diana is a baby from Tanzania. She is the firstborn to her young parents and her mother delivered her at home by the help of a midwife. Diana’s parents are small-scale farmers of basic food crops like maize and vegetables.
Diana was born with 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, Diana’s family traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on December 4th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $935 to fund Diana’s clubfoot treatment. After treatment, she will be able to walk well, run, and play when she grows up.
Diana’s mother says, “Please help my firstborn child get this treatment, I had never seen a child born with clubfoot before, I was scared when I first saw her legs until I was assured that this can be treated.”
