Summary

Our original project was aimed at providing care for children with orthopedic disabilities. Occasionally we encounter adults that need care also. We are attempting to raise funds to cover travel costs, lodging, and medical procedures for two adults. Charlie needs a prosthesis due to an amputation of his foot. Julie is a 22 year old that was born with club feet and she no longer qualifies for free treatment due to her age.

Challenge

Charlie is a farmer and is the primary support for his wife and two young daughters. He is now unable to work due to the amputation of his leg due to an infection. He is now unable to support his family. Julie is a young 22 year old adult who grew up with club feet. She is now too old to receive free treatment like our other children. She is limited in her mobility which limits her employment and educational possibilities in the future.

Solution

With these funds we will be able to transport and house Charlie to Davao where one of our partner organizations will provide him a prosthetic leg at a highly discounted price. With this leg and rehabilitation, Charlie will be able to provide for his family again. These funds will provide for serial casting and surgery to straighten out Julie's feet so she can obtain a better job and possibly attend college in the future.

Long-Term Impact

In Charlie's case, he will be able to provide for his family and his children will be able to stay in school as young adults. Julie will be able obtain gainful employment and possibly attend college which will help her provide for her family in the future.
