FACORC, our partner organization in Liberia, is working hard to spread awareness about clubfoot to the general public there. These are some photos from the outing of the FACORC team talking to people about clubfoot in a marketplace in Monrovia. FACORC now has over 230 children with clubfoot enrolled in treatment and is holding more regular clinics to meet the public's demand for services. We are excited to report that FACORC is also working with the Liberian Ministry of Health and Social Welfare to launch a national clubfoot program in Janury 2014.

miraclefeet has partnered with the Faith Clinical Orthopedic Rehabilitation Center (FACORC), a not-for-profit organization, since June 2012. FACORC was established in March 2011 in Monrovia, Liberia to provide treatment to clubfoot patients using the Ponseti Method. FACORC is the only institution in Liberia treating children for free with the Ponseti Method.
