Quinter is a nine-year-old only girl who needs surgery to heal her clubfoot. She’s in the third grade and likes reading and helping with household chores. Quinter’s mother passed away when she was young, and later her father left the family, so Quinter is now under the care of her aunt, who works as a tea picker.
Quinter has clubfoot of her left foot. Clubfoot is a condition where the foot is twisted out of shape. This makes it difficult for Quinter to walk or to even wear a shoe on that foot.
Fortunately, Quinter traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, AIC Cure International Hospital. There, surgeons will perform clubfoot repair surgery on June 14th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare, is requesting $1,286 to fund Quinter’s clubfoot repair. After treatment, Quinter will be able to walk well and play with her friends both at school and at home.
Quinter’s aunt told us, “My joy is to see Quinter walking well and excelling in life.”
