Samwel is an 11-month-old baby boy from Tanzania. He is the last born to his mother in a family of seven children. His parents are livestock keepers and are also involved in agriculture.
Samwel was born with his feet twisted inward and downward. This condition is a source of concern for his parents, who worry about its potential impact on his mobility in the future. Aware of the importance of addressing the issue early, Samwel’s mother mother received valuable information during her church attendance from the priest about possible treatment options for their son.
Samwel and his family traveled seven hours to seek medical care. He was diagnosed 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. Surgery is recommended to treat his condition.
Fortunately, our medical partner African Mission Healthcare (AMH) can help. Samwel is scheduled to undergo clubfoot repair surgery on August 4th. AMH is requesting $935 to fund Samwel’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, he will be able to walk easily and lead a normal and quality life.
Samwel’s mother said, “I pray my son’s leg will be normal after this treatment. We wish for him to have a good future.”
