Clubfoot free: Faith

Faith and her parents, Ruth and Clements, live almost an hour out of town in a village on the outskirts of Blantyre, so we were impressed by how faithfully they came every week for treatment.

Faith’s feet before and after casting:  

Clements says, “After Faith was born at the public hospital, we went straight to CURE. We were received well, and everything went smoothly. We had challenges getting transport. Sometimes I would borrow money so that we wouldn’t miss treatment for our baby. It all was possible because of God’s power. Her clubfoot only needed three casts, and after her tenotomy, we noticed that it had worked, and we were happy.”

Clements leads us to his home in the village.

We wait for Ruth to return with Faith while Clements tells Chimwemwe their story.

Faith fell and scraped her forehead. Ruth brought Faith to a local clinic, so we went to pick them up in the car and bring them back home—don’t worry, Faith is fine!

Faith waves to a neighbor as they escort us back to the car.

We were so encouraged to see how our clubfoot babies are doing post-treatment! It’s wonderful to hear how God uses the clubfoot clinic to heal babies and encourage their families in their faith. Please continue to pray for our clubfoot clinics across Malawi and the rest of the world.
