Baraka is a beautiful, charming 3-month-old baby boy and the youngest in a family of three children. Baraka’s father works for a construction company. His mother was selling vegetables by the roadside until the government forced her to close her stall.
Baraka has clubfoot on both feet. Clubfoot is a condition in which the foot is twisted, causing difficulty walking and even wearing shoes.
Fortunately, Baraka’s family traveled to visit our medical partner’s care center, Arusha Lutheran Medical Centre. There, surgeons performed clubfoot repair surgery on March 11th. Our medical partner, African Mission Healthcare Foundation, is requesting $935 to fund Baraka’s surgery. After treatment, he will be able to walk and play just like other kids as he gets older.
Baraka’s mother says, “I want my baby to grow up a normal child without a disability. Please help us so that he can have his feet corrected.”
