Salha is a three-week-old baby girl. She is a second child in a family of two children. Her mother sells vegetables at the market and her father helps in building construction.
Salha was born with clubfoot of both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape. This causes difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Salha’s family traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on November 16th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $935 to fund Salha’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, she will be able to walk easily and wear shoes when she grows up.
Salha’s mother says, “Please help my daughter get the treatment she needs so she may be able to grow up like other children without being looked at as an outcast.”
