I took this photo in CAR. Incredibly the eldest of these two little girls is ten years old, her sister is 8. The two are no bigger than an average 4 year old in the US. The older child has a ‘club foot”. A simple surgery could fix it here, but in CAR the child and her sister are accused of witchcraft and doomed to a life of isolation, abuse and scorn.
I don’t know why so many children in CAR are born with a club foot but this is the case, and no surgeon in CAR is skilled in this type of surgery.
Calling all orthopedic surgeons. Is someone willing to go to CAR ? This is a chance to help many young lives. Unicef in CAR could identify and gather the children. I would gladly purchase your ticket.
