Olosirian is a 13-month-old baby boy from Tanzania and the youngest child in a family of four children. His parents are from a small remote town. They breed and sell cattle to make a living, but unfortunately drought conditions have made their work difficult and they have lost most of their cattle.
Olosirian has clubfoot of both feet, a condition in which his feet are twisted out of shape. In the future, this may cause him difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Olosirian receive treatment. On January 20th, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery at AMH’s care center. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily. Now, he and his family need help raising $935 to fund his procedure and care.
Olosirian’s mother shared, “our lack of knowledge is what kept us from seeking treatment. I hope it is not too late.”
