Denis is a charming and friendly three-year-old boy. Denis’s mother is a single mom, and she has a small business selling fruits and vegetables to support her family. Denis has a twin brother, along with another sibling.
Denis has been diagnosed with bilateral genu valgus, a condition in which the knees angle inward and touch one another when his legs are straightened. This is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. As a result, Denis’s gait is affected.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Denis receive treatment. On April 8th, he will undergo corrective surgery at AMH’s care center. Treatment will hopefully restore Denis’s mobility, allowing him to participate in a variety of activities and greatly decreasing his risk of future complications. Now, his family needs help raising $880 to fund his procedure and care.
Denis’s mother shared, “now that my son’s insurance is not covering the surgery, I won’t have any means to raise the money. Please assist me.”
