Raul is a little soccer fan from Venezuela. He was born in Caracas and his family moved to Medellín last January seeking better opportunities.
Raul has clubfoot of his left foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes. Regardless of his condition, he loves soccer, and even if it’s hard for him, he loves to play. He’s also already has a creative mind and loves playing with legos. Raul is very cheerful and social, and loves watching other kids playing around him.
Fortunately, Raul’s family traveled to visit our medical partner, Clínica Noel where they can offer life-changing treatment. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on October 5th. Our medical partner is requesting $1,422 to fund Raul’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily, run and chase after balls, and even play soccer.
His mother told us: “I just hope that my son can walk easier, and be a normal child. I hope you can operate for him and see if finally some day we can take him to a soccer academy without any limitations.”
