Joseph is a bright-eyed, 4-month-old boy. He has a loving family that spans across borders. His mother resides in Kenya and works in a catering company, while his father is based in Arusha, working as a videographer. Joseph is the youngest member of this close-knit family of three children, and his parents have always dreamt of a bright future for their little one. However, he was born facing a formidable challenge. He was diagnosed with club foot.
Joseph’s journey towards a brighter future began at Huruma Hospital in Rombo district, where he received initial treatment. He has undergone four cast changes, showcasing his incredible resilience at a tender age. The medical team at Huruma Hospital has recognized Joseph’s potential for a full and happy life, but they know that more specialized care is needed. That’s why his family is now turning to us for support.
Fortunately, Joseph’s family visited our medical partner’s care center, The Plaster House NGO. There, the team began clubfoot treatment on October 6th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $935 to fund Joseph’s clubfoot surgery.
Joseph’s mother says: “I wish for my son to be okay. I hope when he starts crawling, this condition won’t limit him and make it uncomfortable for him.”
