Peter is a young boy from Kenya. He is the only child in his family and a 1st-grade student in primary school. His mother says that he likes to draw and play with his peers while at home and at school. The family comes from Gathaiti village, Gatundu in Kiambu County. Peter’s mother is a housewife, and his father is a boda boda (motorcycle for hire) driver who works in the village.
Peter has clubfoot on his right foot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Peter traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on February 27th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,286 to fund Peter’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily and wear shoes.
Peter’s mother said, “I seek support to help my son undergo surgery and walk like other children and improve his self-esteem while in school and at home.”

Peter underwent clubfoot repair surgery so that he can walk well and go to school.
Peter was admitted to the hospital and underwent a successful surgery with the medical team at Cure Hospital. This treatment is expected to have a significant impact on Peter’s mobility, as he will be able to walk well and continue with his studies without hindrance.
Peter’s mother said, “Many thanks to the whole Cure Hospital for giving me hope and my son a second chance to have a normal life. As a young boy, my son grew up having very little confidence in himself due to the condition, some of his other friends laughed at him for having the condition, but now after the surgery, I can see from his face how happy he is, and that was what I’ve always wanted for him. Thank you so much to donors, and God bless you for helping my son and everyone else you have helped.”
