Treating clubfoot…Shadrack’s story

By:David Erot and Benson Ewoi

In Turkana County, there are many boys and girls who are born with club foot conditions that affect their social life, access to education and health services. Club foot is a congenital deformity involving one foot or both; the affected foot appears to have been rotated internally at the ankle. Without treatment, people with club feet often appear to walk on their ankles or on the sides of their feet. However with treatment, most patients recover fully and are able to walk and participate in various activities including athletics.
