Why Your Support Matters!

Briandel
Briandel's clubfeet before surgery

Did you know there are no pediatric orthopedic surgeons in St. Vincent or the surrounding region? A child with an orthopedic disease or deformity has no hope for receiving care without International Hospital for Children and would suffer and be unable to live full lives. Many would never have full mobility. Your generous support has sent hope and healing to these children by helping us mobilize IHC's volunteer pediatric orthopedic surgeons. Just one of these children is 8-month-old Briandel who recently had surgery to correct club feet. On behalf of children like Briandel who will grow up to walk normally, thank you!
