Moringe is a 13-year-old boy from a Maasai family in Tanzania. Moringe is the seventh child of his mother and comes from a large family. His father, a livestock keeper, works hard to support his children and family. The Maasai community in Kiteto primarily relies on livestock farming, and Moringe’s father is a respected cattle breeder. Unfortunately, Moringe is currently facing a debilitating physical condition that severely affects his mobility and hampers his ability to walk long distances. In 2022, Moringe began to experience pain in his feet. Shortly after, his knees began to bow inward, leading to the development of a condition commonly known as knee knocking or Genu Valgus. This condition often stems from an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often occurs because of contaminated drinking water. Morinfe's condition affects his daily activities and restricts his participation in important community events and educational opportunities. Due to limited financial resources and the high cost of medical care, Moringe's family hasn't been able to get Moringe the support he needs. Thankfully, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, can help. African Mission Healthcare is requesting $880 to fund corrective surgery for Moringe. The procedure is scheduled for June 6th, and treatment will hopefully restore Moringe's mobility, allow him to participate in the activities he's missed out on, and decrease his risk of future complications. Moringe says, "I hope this chance I got will help change my life for the better. I hope when I go home, I will be able to do most of my activities without feeling any pain in my leg."
