Mbwana is a child from Tanzania. He has been diagnosed with acquired bilateral genu varus. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Mbwana has difficulty walking.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $940 to fund corrective surgery for Mbwana. The procedure is scheduled to take place on December 6. Treatment will hopefully restore Mbwana’s mobility, allow him to participate in a variety of activities, and greatly decrease his risk of future complications.
Mbwana’s mother says, “Please help us.”
