Sanare is an active and happy four-month-old baby boy who lives with his family of eight in Tanzania. Sanare’s parents are small-scale farmers. They raise cattle and goats and grow maize and beans.
Sanare has bilateral clubfeet, which is congenital deformity involving both feet. The feet look like they are turned inwards at the ankle. This may affect Sanare’s school attendance. He will have difficulty walking, experience pain, and may be subjected to stigma.
After a procedure called “manipulation and casting,” which uses gradual treatments to correct this condition, Sanare will be able to walk without difficulty. His treatments are scheduled to begin on October 17.
Sanare’s father says, “I will be very thankful and very happy to see Sanare get treatment. I promise to take him to school when he grows up.”
Watsi is requesting $890 to fund Sanare’s treatment.
