Elisha is two weeks old and lives with his family in Tanzania. Elisha is the fourth born in his family. His father is a carpenter with a small furniture business, while his mother is a businesswoman selling fruits in the market. They live in a rental house in Tanzania.
Just one week after being born, his mother noticed that her son’s right leg was not in a normal condition. She took him to the doctor, where he was diagnosed with clubfoot.
If not treated, Elisha will experience difficulty walking when he grows up. He will feel pain, and he may be subjected to stigma. Thankfully, Elisha’s treatment is scheduled for April 25.
We expect that when Elisha gets treated, he will be able to walk without pain, attend school, and perform normal activities like his peers.
The family has managed to raise $49 to help contribute to the treatment’s cost. They need help to raise an additional $890.
Elisha’s father says, ”After he gets treated, I would love to see Elisha attend school and go to a university one day.”
