Fatma is a 14-year-old girl from Kenya. She is the 4th born in a family of seven children, and is in grade 7 at Sowene Primary School. She is passionate about education and likes reading, her favorite subject being English. She aspires to become a designer in the future. Fatma has clubfoot on her right foot. They discovered the condition in 2017, and she was operated on at Mombasa Hospital, but the deformity has recurred, thus affecting her mobility. We met her at the AIC Cure clinic accompanied by her mother, Asli, who explained how they had visited different hospitals to seek medical attention for her foot, including undergoing surgery at Mombasa, but the condition hasn’t been corrected; instead, it continues to worsen/bend on the right side. Both parents operate a small shop in Taveta town, which provides the family with a small income. Fatma says that she feels pain while walking and is not able to play with her friends while at school. She is scheduled to undergo surgery to correct her clubfoot. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and wearing shoes. Fortunately, Fatma visited our medical partner's care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on October 11. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, requests $1,286 to fund Fatma's surgery. After treatment, she will be able to walk without difficulty and continue with her studies uninterrupted. “I will be happy to see my foot corrected and appreciate your assistance,” Fatma said.
