Meet Susan! Susan is nine years old and lives with her mother and father in Kenya. She enjoys going to school and wishes to grow up to be a teacher one day. Susan was born with bilateral knee contractures. Bilateral knee contractures are a condition that makes it impossible for Susan to straighten her legs or walk. Without being able to walk, she is unable to get to school each day.
Susan’s parents are very grateful that they found our medical partner CURE International. The mother, Salome, says that she found out about this hospital through a pastor and believes it is the best chance her daughter has in fulfilling her dreams of being a teacher. “I want my daughter to walk,” she says.
For $1,000, we can fund a bilateral knee release that will allow Susan to walk. Let’s help fulfill Susan’s mother’s dreams, and help Susan walk easily!
