Alick (not his real name) lives in a rural village with his grandmother after both his parents died. His grandmother heard about the OVC programme and wondered if we could help him. Alick has club feet and needed surgery to correct it. He couldn’t get to school because it was too painful to walk and wasn’t able to wear shoes.
Thankfully, the international church in Ndola has a great orthopaedic surgeon who was willing to do the operation free of charge! This is an incredible blessing to the family who would otherwise have been unable to afford the trip to the hospital and the associated medical fees.
We are so grateful that the OVC team was able to intervene and change this child’s life.
