Linah is a happy and gentle two-month-old baby. She lives with her parents and four siblings in Tanzania. Linah’s father is an entrepreneur, and her mother is a secondary school teacher.
Linah was born with a left clubfoot. The foot looks like it is turned inwards at the ankle and upwards. This may cause Linah difficulty when attending school or engaging in life activities when she grows up. Doctors have recommended clubfoot repair surgery, scheduled for October 17.
Her parents have contributed $45 towards her treatment. However, her father is the only one working at this time, so her parents cannot afford to pay the full treatment cost. She still needs $890 to fully fund her treatment.
Linah’s father says, “I will be very grateful to see Linah get treatment and I promise to take Linah to school up to a university graduate level one day when she grows up”.
When treated, Linah will be able to walk without difficulty, and she will be able to attend school..
