Transforming the lives of children born with clubfoot in Africa, and around the world, through low-cost, nonsurgical treatment, enabling them to live productive, healthy lives.

MiraclefeetOne in every 750 children worldwide is born with clubfoot, a debilitating condition that causes one or both feet to point inward and upward, making it difficult and painful to walk. Without proper treatment, disabled children are stigmatized and live their lives in poverty. Usually they are unable to attend school and are often abused and neglected. Currently, one million people globally and 75,000 people in Africa cannot walk properly due to untreated clubfoot.

miraclefeet works in developing countries in Africa and other regions to change the lives of children born with clubfoot by successfully treating it.  We work with partners at local clinics who deliver high quality clubfoot treatment at no or low cost. Children are treated with the nonsurgical Ponseti method, which uses casts and braces. This method has come to be known as the “gold standard” for clubfoot treatment. miraclefoot provides our partners with the tools and expertise needed to fully treat children born with clubfoot.

Launched in 2010, miraclefeet’s partners have helped more than 10,000 children receive treatment for clubfoot, about one third of them in Africa. Our goal is to help 10,000 children annually by 2018.

miraclefeet envisions a world where all children born with clubfoot in Africa and around the world  receive treatment, which will enable them to live fully productive, active, and healthy lives.
