Joel is a sweet and polite five-year-old boy who loves playing cards. He is the second of two children, and lives with his mother, who works in a salon. Joel is unable to walk properly because he has a clubfoot, a condition where the foot angles inwards at the ankle.
If left untreated, Joel will likely develop painful osteoarthritis in the bones of his foot at an early age. “I would love to see my son able to walk properly” says Joel’s mother. Unfortunately, she is unable to earn enough to cover daily living expenses so she cannot afford the treatment Joel needs on her own.
By raising $715, we can help Joel receive the surgery and serial long leg casting he needs to start walking properly!
