CCW Delhi Celebrates One Year

It was only a year ago that CURE Clubfoot Worldwide opened its doors in Delhi, India and it hasn’t looked back since!  In only a year, CCW Delhi has straightened over 800 children’s feet!

CCW India is part of a network of CCW programs around the globe fighting to eradicate clubfoot as a life long disability.  Two hundred thousand children will be born every year with clubfoot, and 50,000 of those children are from India.  In Delhi, CCW manages clinics at six different hospitals, helping to reach the 1,000 children that were treated this past year.

A special event will be held to commemorate CCW Delhi’s first anniversary and its partnership with the Government of Delhi’s Department of Health and Family Welfare on May 5, 2010.  A highlight to the event will be the signing of a Memorandum of Understanding between Prof. Kiran Walia, Dehi’s honorable minister of Health and Family Welfare and Andrew Mayo, executive director for CCW.  Delhi’s CCW children will all be there to witness the signing and celebrate this wonderful occasion!
