I am fundraising to help treat clubfoot in babies

Jonah’s life demonstrates ‘what human abandons, God adopts’. A compelling story of CURE India instills hope and brings joy to families with children born with clubfoot.

 Jonah’s battle for life commenced in his mother’s womb. His parents lacked all resources to give him birth. However, a couple willing to adopt the newborn baby, unfortunately declined, as Noah was born with clubfoot deformity. His biological parents, immediately gave him away to the Social Welfare Agency in their district. By now Noah, just a few hours old, has already embraced rejection and discrimination.

 Later, Jonah was brought to Wondang-ki Orphanage Home & Adoption Centre in Nagaland where hope and numerous other orphans welcomed him with love. It is here that the dedication and care he received was a sweet embalming experience. The orphanage staff soon began Jonah’s treatment at a private hospital with little knowledge about clubfoot. Soon they heard about CURE’s program, and one month old Jonah was enrolled for treatment. 

 Today, a couple is adopting him and he has a new home and care of a loving family. They have given him a new name - Ayitsho Jonah Sono

 

You can get involved in CURE’s programs and do your part to make Jonah's lives better. Be the change that helps Jonah get the medical care and treatment he deserve. For as little as Rs 10000 a month you can make all that change happen. Don’t hesitate. Get involved today! For more information, details of all of our work are available online.

Dear Supporters, 

Jonah has made great progress with his treatment for clubfoot.

Currently, he wears size 2 shoes that are specifically designed for children with clubfoot. These shoes slowly help the feet muscles align and aid children in walking and standing. 

We are happy to report that Jonah has not only started standing straight and walking, he also runs around the house. The champion, Monalis, has informed us that his adoptive parents are being extremely supportive about his care. They regularly attend counseling sessions to keep themselves informed about how to care for children with clubfoot. 

His treatment will continue for 2 more years, during which he will be provided three more special shoes. 

The champion and Jonah’s parents thank you for your support.
