Lazaro is a social and friendly 15-year-old student and the third born child in a family of nine children. His parents are small-scale farmers and livestock keepers. He is currently in class five, and his best subjects in school are social studies and mathematics.
Lazaro was born with clubfoot of both feet, a condition in which the feet are twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes. Despite his condition, he tries to keep active and loves to play football.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Lazaro receive treatment. On December 17th, he will undergo clubfoot repair surgery at AMH’s care center. After treatment, he will be able to run and play with friends more easily. Now, AMH is requesting $935 to fund Lazaro’s procedure and care.
Lazaro shared, “I would love to have normal feet like my siblings and friends. I will be so happy if it can be possible.”
