Dominic no longer has surgery planned for his treatment.

Our medical partner shared an update on Dominic that we wanted to share with you. He arrived to the hospital for his planned treatment, but during his pre-operative review his medical team determined a different course of treatment would be more successful in his case. He is instead undergoing a non-surgical treatment of special braces and should have a full recovery with this care. Funding support for his surgery is no longer necessary so our medical partner has asked that we support another patient in need right now.

Dominic is an 11-year-old student in the second grade. He enjoys reading and playing with his friends in school. Dominic and his brother are twins, and they are the third-born children in their family. His father works as a mechanic in the village, while his mother works at home to take care of their family.

Dominic was born with a condition that affects his feet and his ability to walk. He has difficulty walking, and often falls when he runs and plays with his friends in school.

Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Dominic receive treatment. On April 11th, he will undergo bilateral achilles tendon lengthening surgery, and serial casting for his knee. After surgery, he will be able to walk well and play with his friends easily. Now, he and his parents need help raising $1,224 to fund his procedure and care.

Dominic’s mother shared, “I will be happy to see him walking well like other children. Any support will be highly appreciated.”
