Clubfoot affects 200,000 children each year. Untreated clubfoot is the single largest cause of disability in the world. I've personally seen firsthand how this affects children and fortunately living in the NYC metro area and the United States for that matter we are very fortunate to have access to the best medical care because clubfoot is curable. But many children around the world don't have the money or access to medical care to receive the treatment they need. And for those children walking is extremely difficult and can put them on a path towards isolation and disability. I've decided to support the treatment of clubfoot because unlike research efforts to find cures for other debilitating illnesses or diseases the cure for clubfoot already exists. Most kids who receive proper treatment can live a normal life. There is just a greater effort needed to facilitate the proper medical training around the world and to give these kids access that badly need it. Please consider helping me support this cause which can make an immediate impact.
