|Christian's feet before treatment|
I did not lose hope though or give up. My persistence paid off when I received an email from Jennifer Wambui, the Chief Executive Director at Clubfoot Correction Awareness Initiative, CaCAI. She referred me to Dr. Giorgio Lastroni at the Beit CURE hospital, in Lusaka Zambia. Dr. Lastroni recommended that I take my son to Lusaka so that he could see him in person.

We are back home in Zimbabwe and my son is able to walk unaided now. His foot has vastly improved and he is free from the pain he used to experience before. We are glad to be half way through our journey to having Christian’s feet corrected and we look forward to going back to Beit CURE Hospital to correct the other foot. Doctors have told us that it will not be as complex as the operations done on the first foot.
