Maxwell is a charming, five year old boy from Kenya. He and his three older siblings live with their single mother, who works as a laundry aide and also as a small scale farmer.
Maxwell was born with clubfoot, for which he has received treatment with casting and orthotics since birth. However, due to financial challenges, he was unable to undergo serial casting and other necessary procedures, which has left him with pain when walking for long distances.
Fortunately, Maxwell’s family now traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons from our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, will perform clubfoot repair surgery on January 16th. African Mission Healthcare Foundation is requesting $1,286 to fund Maxwell’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, Maxwell will be able to walk comfortably, without discomfort or pain.
Maxwell’s mother said: “I am requesting support from the donors to help my son undergo surgery so that he can have a normal life.”
