Among Kenyan rural communities, disability is a big taboo, oftenly excluding those people from society. Inability to work makes them feel useless. Sometimes all they need is a small orthopedic surgery, especially when it comes to congenital malformations, like a clubfoot. Our aim is to arrive at the hospital and prepare the site for our surgeon coming from Poland. The operations are performed together with Kenyan professionals. After that we provide physiotherapy for the patient and train family members how to exercise with a child to ensure a long-lasting outcome.
