Abdi is a one month old baby. His father is the sole breadwinner, and his mother is a homemaker. Abdi’s father works as a local salesperson. The money he gets enables him to provide for his family but is limited to basic needs, and with the current high inflation, Abdi’s father says it has been hard for him to provide.
Abdi has clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Abdi traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 8th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $935 to fund Abdi’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily when he grows up and will be able to wear shoes like any other child.
Abdi’s mother says, “This condition has been stressful, I wish my son gets well.”

Abdi underwent treatment for clubfoot repair.
Abdi is a baby boy who was born with a condition called clubfoot in both of his feet. This condition causes difficulty walking and limits mobility.
Abdi is currently on his first cast and scheduled to have his second cast shortly. He will continue with manipulation and casting to straighten his feet, and have a final surgery to complete his treatment. Though he cannot walk yet, the treatment he is receiving now will significantly help his quality of life when he is ready to walk.
Abdi’s mother says, “I am grateful for the help you are giving to my baby. This situation has been stressful.”
