Nanyu is a 3-year-old girl from Southern Kenya near the Tanzania border. She is from a nomadic community and is the youngest of 6 children. Her mother is a homemaker, while her father is a pastoralist. The family lives in a traditional Masai mud-built grass-thatched house.
Nanyu has a right foot deformity where her knee bends inwardly to touch the other left knee. This has made walking difficult, and sometimes she has pain.
She has been taken to several clinics without getting any help. Luckily, our partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) can finally help. They will perform a surgery treat the deformity, scheduled for July 17th. Nanyu and her family are asking for $1,224 to fully fund the procedure.
With successful treatment, Nanyu will be able to walk easily and grow up like any other child.
Nanyu’s mother shared, “As a mother, my joy would be to see my daughter walking well and playing with other friends.”
