Abel is a two-month-old baby from Tanzania. He lives with his parents and six siblings in the Maasai community of Namalulu.
Abel was born with clubfoot on both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted out of shape, which will make it difficult for Abel to wear shoes or walk.
Fortunately, Abel was brought to our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation. Now he is scheduled to undergo clubfoot repair surgery on March 17th at Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is requesting $935 to fund Abel’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily and live a life free from discomfort.
Abel’s father says: “It is our hope that Abel gets treatment and has a good life ahead.”
