Six-month-old Mitchelle is the youngest of three children. She lives with her family in a village in Uganda.
Mitchelle has been diagnosed with congenital clubfoot. This is a medical condition in which her foot is twisted out of shape or position. Past attempts using the Ponseti method (most common treatment for clubfoot) to correct her clubfoot have been unsuccessful.
To be able to walk properly and without any pain or discomfort, Mitchelle now requires surgical intervention. On September 7, Mitchelle will undergo a $1,224 surgery to realign her foot into the correct position.
“I am looking forward to seeing my daughter walking and standing without any difficulty,” says Mitchelle’s mother, Florence.
