Wilson is a little boy from Tanzania. He loves playing and making new friends. Wilson’s parents are both farmers who own a small portion of land. They also work in other people’s farms as casual labors.
Wilson was diagnosed with femur genu varus and tibia genu valgus. His legs are bowed. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Wilson feels pain in both his legs when walking or playing and needs crutches or support to move around.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Wilson. The procedure is scheduled to take place on November 21. Treatment will hopefully restore Wilson’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Wilson’s mother says, “Thank you for helping my son get treatment. God bless you all.”
