Upendo is a child from Tanzania. She is the youngest in a family of ten children.
Upendo has bilateral clubfoot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Upendo traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on December 5. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $890 to fund Upendo’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk normally.
Upendo says, “We tried to treat our daughter but due to financial challenges we were unable to complete it. Please help our daughter.”
