Beatrice is a young student from Kenya. She is a calm girl and the seventh born in a family of eight children. Her family hails from Mokoyon village in West Pokot County. Beatrice’s father is a farmer while her mother is a housewife. They live in a one roomed grass thatched house in their village.
Beatrice has clubfoot of her right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Beatrice traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 23th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Beatrice’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily, play, and wear shoes like the other children she knows.
“We are requesting for support so that her foot can be corrected and she can continue with her normal life,” Julius, Beatrice’s father told us.
