Joseph is a 17-year-old student who likes music and playing table tennis. He’s the youngest of four children in his family. Joseph’s father passed away when Joseph was only two years old and his mother currently works with physically impaired children at a local Catholic institution.
Joseph was born with bilateral club feet, a condition that causes him discomfort and pain when he walks. Joseph previously underwent corrective surgery on his left foot at our medical partner’s care center, Cure International Hospital. Joseph is now in need of corrective surgery on his right foot. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare is helping Joseph’s family raise the $1,224 needed to cover this corrective surgery so that can walk pain free and do all the things he wants to enjoy like playing football with his friends.
Our medical partners shared that this surgery will be very impactful for Joseph allowing him to walk more easily and continue with his education. Joseph says, “I’d like to have my foot corrected so that I can keep going to school without difficulties.”
