Tara: LWB’s Featured Child of the Week
Being born with clubfoot is a very common limb defect. Early treatment is much easier for the child and usually results in a relatively normal foot appearance and function. LWB is grateful to be working with An Orphan’s Wish, which operates a facility specializing in clubfoot casting using the gentle Ponseti method. Children sent to this facility receive clubfoot casting treatment and care, bracing and physical therapy as necessary, as well as educational services… all in a loving environment. By partnering together, we are able to help more orphaned children in China receive the specialized care they need.
Because each child’s situation and medical circumstances are unique, it is difficult to predict exactly how long the casting process will take to get the best possible outcome. Funds that were originally raised can be depleted and yet a child may need to stay longer to complete their casting. Tara, a beautiful girl being helped by LWB, is in just that situation.
