Raheel is a 15-month-old boy from a small family with one sibling and two parents. Raheel’s father is a local vendor selling fish at the market, and his mother sells clothes and accessories. Raheel’s parents work to make sure their family is provided for, but have struggled to make ends while business has been slow.
Raheel has clubfoot of his left foot, a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape making it difficult for Raheel to learn to walk and wear shoes. Fortunately, Raheel’s family traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 13th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is helping Raheel’s parent’s raise $935 to fund his clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily.
Raheel’s mother shared, “It feels good seeing my son be playful despite his foot condition. I wish for his other foot to be normal too.”

Raheel underwent corrective leg treatment so he can grow up healthy and active.
Raheel has started manipulation and casting to help correct and straighten his leg. He is on his third cast and is scheduled for his next cast change soon. He will continue with casting until his left foot shows a full range of motion. After the casting period, he will have a final surgery to repair damaged tendons. After the surgery, he is going to start feet bracing as his last phase of treatment. During the entire treatment phase, he will be having checkups with his clubfoot doctor to make sure he is fully healing.
Raheel’s mother says “Thank you for helping my son. May God bless you.”
