Naisam is a 22-month-old baby girl and the youngest in a family of two children. Naisam’s mother is single and sells vegetables by the roadside to provide for her children.
Naisam has been diagnosed with bilateral genu varus. This condition is typically caused by an excessive accumulation of fluoride in the bones, which often stems from contaminated drinking water. Because of her condition, she experiences difficulty walking.
Fortunately, our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare (AMH), is helping Naisam receive treatment. On April 8th, Naisam will undergo corrective surgery to treat her condition. Treatment will hopefully restore Naisam’s mobility, allowing her to participate in a variety of activities and greatly decreasing her risk of future complications. Now, she and her mother need help raising $880 to fund her procedure and care.
Naisam’s mother shared, “I was directed here by a man who saw how much my child was struggling to walk. Please help us.”
