Unfortunately in developing countries many parents can barely afford to eat, let alone pay for the casting and braces and medical care for their child. In the past, this resulted in some children not being able to receive treatment solely due to poverty.
Our goal has always been to make the Ponseti Method available to every child born with clubfoot and now you can help in a personal way. On His Path recently launched the Ponseti® Kids Clubfoot Sponsorship Program; exclusively in the country of El Salvador at this time.
The Ponseti® Kids Clubfoot Sponsorship Program is a way to ensure that a specific child with clubfoot in El Salvador receives proper clubfoot treatment, receives the Gospel, and has the opportunity to create a lasting relationship with their sponsor.
On His Path also supports the education of families whose children are going through the treatment – if the parents understand the treatment method it will ensure their child will stay on track with the treatment plan and will have results that last a lifetime, so they will be able to run, jump, and play just like everyone else.
The length of your sponsorship will vary depending on the needs of your sponsored child, however, a typical clubfoot case will last four years. Your sponsorship would come to an end when the child completes treatment, of course with the option to sponsor another child if you’d like. You may also sponsor more than one child at the same time.
Please pray that each child is able to finish the treatment they need to be completely healed. We look forward to making Ponseti® Kids Clubfoot Sponsorship Program a part of your lives, to give a child the gift of hope!
