Infant Club Foot Appeal….the FACTS
Every day hundreds of children in Africa are born with Club Foot, a disability affecting one or both feet. Without treatment they will only be able to crawl for the rest of their lives. The life chances for these children are bleak.
Infant Club Foot Appeal….OUR AIM
If babies are treated soon after birth it is possible to transform their lives with a low cost, high impact clinical intervention to re-align their foot. Infant Club Foot Appeal is working in Africa, bringing this treatment method to children with Club Foot.
In addition we are training local staff, to build their capacity to provide long term sustainable treatment to children with Club Foot . We are also providing treatment for older children who are suffering the effects of untreated Club Foot, providing crutches, wheel chairs and where appropriate surgical interventions.
