Alvin is a 1-year-old boy and the firstborn child of his mother and father. Both of Alvin's parents are still relatively young themselves and are reliant on the support of the boy's grandparents. Their family tries to engage in day-to-day jobs to earn income for themselves. Together they reside in a modest village named Mamire. Alvin's mother primarily takes care of him while depending on sporadic day jobs for financial support. Regrettably, the earnings fall short of providing for both the mother and child, prompting the grandfather to assist them when needed. Alvin has clubfoot of his left foot, a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes as he grows. They have never sought treatment for Alvin's condition due to financial barriers. However, their situation changed when they attended one of our medical partner's outreach visits. This visit directed them to a partner centre, offering a ray of hope for Alvin's health. Alvin's parents are now seeking assistance to cover the costs of their son's treatment. Fortunately, Alvin and his family traveled to visit our medical partner's care center, The Plaster House NGO. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on August 11th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $935 to fund Alvin's clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily and grow up to lead a high quality life without disability. Alvin’s grandfather says: “We wish for Alvin to experience well-being and not to bear the burden of constant worry about his future due to his untreated condition.”
