Treating clubfoot: Helping newborn to school-aged children

Community outreach is so important, and our partner clinic staff members and volunteers in Liberia are absolute pros at it. We recently received a grant to buy them a new vehicle to improve their ability to provide outreach in remote areas of Liberia.

This couple below recently found out about FACORC and were truly happy to have found a place where their one-week-old child can be treated. The mother said she had been ashamed to bring her child outdoors because of the deformity. Here they are before and after his first casts.

This older boy is being treated for clubfoot and is benefiting from miraclefeet-supported academic scholarship. Thanks for supporting this important work in Liberia!
