A busy two weeks for CURE Clubfoot
As we celebrate the advent season and the blessings the Lord has given us we are extremely grateful for the staff and partners CURE Clubfoot has around the world. They work tirelessly and travel hundreds of kilometers to share love of Christ and see children and families healed for eternity.

In 2012 the program grew with two new clinics upcountry and with another training, this time combining medical and counselors. The first Counseling training and medical training were both held in Burundi. In 2013, the program added two new clinics with the third medical and counseling training. The fourth medical training was held in early 2015.
World Clubfoot Day celebrated in style across India
World Clubfoot Day, which takes place annually on June 3rd, was a special time of celebration for our CURE Clubfoot teams in India. We have more than 100 clubfoot clinics in India, and last year, they completed 87,538 casting visits. Because of their hard work and dedication, thousands of children are now running free from disability. That’s certainly something to celebrate!
Thousands running free from clubfoot
Every month, in 18 countries, our 330 clubfoot clinics receive over 6,000 visits from children who have been afflicted with clubfoot. Congenital clubfoot is the most common birth defect of the musculoskeletal system and is estimated to affect nearly 1 in every 750 births worldwide. In many low- and middle-income countries treatment is unavailable and these children face a lifetime of disability.
