Another child like Chinsinsi Yonasi needs his opportunity for life-changing care. You can help make that possible right now.

About Chinsinsi

The ideal situation is that as soon as a parent recognizes their child has a disability or deformity, they will turn to CURE for answers, as they already know about and trust us. The goal is to alleviate the feelings of hopelessness that grow into acceptance of the child’s condition, which lead to them having to live with it a lot longer than necessary. We have reached that goal in the Yonasi family. Manale Yonasi had her first experience with CURE in 2003 when she brought her third born in to have treatment for clubfoot. Now she is back again with three-week-old Chinsinsi for bilateral clubfoot.

Manale was not at all shaken when Chinsinsi was born with her deformity. For Manale and for a lot of African mothers, it is the norm to have a child with a birth defect because of poor, if any, prenatal care. This mom, thankfully, knew right where to go to fix the problem, easing the anxieties of realizing her child was not like a lot of the other children. Manale is very happy to be able to bring her daughter here, as she knows that CURE will make everything better.

Chinsinsi is in good hands and will have straight feet before we know it. We are so thankful that CURE’s goals are being realized and that there are people out there helping to help us fight infant clubfoot and all kinds of other deformities and disabilities. Thank goodness for moms like Manale, as well, who advocate CURE’s services and who are making a bigger difference in the lives of Malawi’s children then they will ever realize.

Treatment Note

Chinsinsi is suffering with clubfoot, but as an infant our doctors have determined that her condition can be treated through a less-expensive multi-stepped casting process called the Ponseti method. As a result, Chinsinsi's care will be reflected in (instead of one surgery) a series of updates throughout the casting process.

  1. 09/25/2012 Still hoping she makes it back to clinic to start the process again. It's discouraging but not the end for her. Please keep her in your prayers.
  2. 09/07/2012 Chinsinsi was last seen several months ago and her progress had taken a wrong turn. Her legs will need to be re-casted when she returns to the clinic. Please pray that she is able to make the trip in the weeks ahead. Thanks for your support and prayers.
  3. 04/27/2012 Chinsinsi's follow up appointment has been scheduled for 05/10/2012 - Chinsinsi was in yesterday and she's doing alright. Though she has been put in braces, the doctors reviewed her yesterday and decided they weren't satisfied with the way her feet were looking, so they are going to put her back in casts next time she comes. Keep her in your prayers!
