Mary is a seven-year-old girl from Kenya who will soon celebrate her 8th birthday. She is the oldest of two children. Mary's mother is a single parent who is a farmer. Mary has clubfoot on both feet. Mary's sibling was also born with clubfoot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes. Mary was also born with a condition called right hemiplegic cerebral palsy - a type of unilateral cerebral palsy that causes paralysis on only one side of the body, this condition affects her ability to walk, stand, and keep her balance. For almost 8 years, she has struggled with the condition without any help. She is currently at the hospital receiving treatment, which includes a series of casts on both legs. These casts are meant to slowly improve the movement in her ankles and knees, reduce stiffness, and help her legs be more flexible and properly aligned. After the casting, she will have foot surgery. Fortunately, Mary's family visited our medical partner's care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on June 25th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Mary's clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to play without restrictions and enjoy school with her friends. “I long to see my daughter walk and join school and bring my other child for treatment, too” Mary’s mother told us.
