One in every 800 children worldwide is born with clubfoot, a birth defect that causes one or both feet to point inward and upward, making it difficult and painful to walk. Only 15 percent of all children born with clubfoot have access to treatment. The other 85 percent remain untreated, suffering terrible stigma and pain, as well as increased rates of neglect, abuse, illiteracy, and lifelong poverty. Yet, clubfoot is easily and effectively treated using the non-surgical Ponseti method (casting and bracing) for less than $500/child.
Currently, one million people globally and 75,000 people in Africa are living with untreated clubfoot.
MiracleFeet works in low- and middle-income countries in Africa and other regions to change the lives of children born with clubfoot by increasing access to treatment. Through MiracleFeet’s support, partners at local clinics deliver high-quality clubfoot treatment at no or low cost. Launched in 2010, MiracleFeet’s partners have helped more than 31,000 children receive treatment for clubfoot, about one third of them in Africa. Additionally, MiracleFeet has collaborated with other organizations working in clubfoot care to develop a 15-year plan, “RunFree2013,” to end clubfoot disability worldwide.
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.
