Moses is a playful four-year-old boy from Nyandarua County in Kenya. He is the seventh and youngest child in his family. Both of his parents are peasant farmers.
Moses was a healthy child at birth. However, last year his mother noticed an unusual bending of his legs towards each other, known as knock knees. At that time, Moses’ mother was told to wait until Moses was older before considering treatment.
Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $1,224 to fund hemiepiphysiodesis surgery for Moses, which is scheduled for April 18th at AIC Cure International Hospital. This procedure, also known as guided growth, will gradually correct Moses’ angular limb deformity, enabling him to walk comfortably as he grows older.
“I will appreciate any kind of support purposed to help my boy walk normally like other children.” Moses’s mother told us.
