Alexmar is 20-month-old baby girl and already has a curious personality! She is the youngest of three children. Due to the economic and political situation in Venezuela, her family moved to Colombia seeking better opportunities. She loves to play with her mom and siblings, and her mom dreams of seeing her walk and run as she grows up.
Alexmar has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Alexmar’s family traveled to visit our medical partner, Clínica Noel, where surgeons will perform bilateral clubfoot repair surgery on June 15th. Now, Clínica Noel is requesting $1,500 to fund Alexmar’s surgery. After treatment, she will be able to walk, run, and play with friends.
Her mother shared, “when I saw her born like this I felt really sad, I entered a postpartum depression. Somehow, knowing that she will be able to walk and grab stuff and that really kind people are going to help me pay for the treatment reaffirms my faith in God.”
