Crecious is three years old and the first child to his mother. His mother describes him as a happy child who is always playing. As Crecious started to grow, his mother noticed that he wasn’t able to walk very well and would often fall over.
They traveled to Arusha to seek treatment at our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre (ALMC). Crecious’s legs have bowed outwards, so he was diagnosed with genu varus.
Crecious’s mother has high hopes for her son, but she only makes a small amount of money as a primary school teacher. She needs help to pay for his treatment.
On January 19, Crecious will undergo corrective surgery for his legs. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, requests $940 to fund his treatment.
Crecious’s mother says, “I hope that my son with be able to grow, play, and go to school like other children after his surgery. “
