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.

Dear Supporters,
It is an initiative to treat the clubfoot affected babies.

clubfoot  is one of the most common birth deformities that affects over 2, 00,000 new born children every year in the world. Every 10 minutes a child is born with clubfoot in India, ie. over 50,000 children are born with Clubfoot deformity every year (1 per 500 birth). Clubfoot is a condition where the foot is twisted inward and can be corrected with serial cast and a special shoe. Many children born with clubfoot are misunderstood as polio affected children. Majority of them grow up with clubfoot deformity and live physically challenged all their life. Untreated clubfoot children can’t walk, run or play and many of them never get an opportunity of education.

10000bugs could treat 1 needy child.

The treatment  for children covers physician, cast technician, and counselor for the necessary number of cast treatments, for supplying and fitting a brace (a special shoe and bar that is used for 3-4 years), and the follow-up visits and other quality assurances to ensure good results up until the child’s third or fourth birthday. An older children’s care follows the same pattern, but with varying number of casts and other visits.

thanks in advance for supporting.
