Dear Baby Centre Friends,
As a normal practice here at the Baby Centre, we do not intentionally take children with special needs because we are not equipped for that. However, from time to time, God blesses us with a child that needs some very special care. Our Joshua George is one of these children. He has been here with us at the Baby Centre for more than a year now waiting for the right time to act on his behalf. He is a wonderful young boy, now 3 years and two months old that was abandoned in the Nakuru area. Joshua has a Club foot on his left side and on his right side, his leg below the knee never formed. On the 15th of this September, we will be taking Joshua to Kijabe Hospital and the Surgeons from CURE International will perform a procedure to fix the club foot, and we will amputate the right leg at the knee. Joshua will then be fit with a prosthetic after 12 weeks of healing. He will return here to the Baby Centre to recover and then to start the process of rehabilitation and learning to walk.
Please pray for Joshua as we prepare him for this difficult journey. Pray for the medical team at Kijabe. Pray for our team here at the Baby Centre as we prepare to receive him back here after approximately a week in the hospital.
We thank God for the donors that have already contributed for the cost of the surgery. We have enough funds for the surgery. We do need additional funds to pay for the post-op care and his rehab. He will require his own caregiver for 12 weeks.
If you would like to help, or have any questions concerning Joshua, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This has been a very difficult decision, and we believe that this is in the very best interest of Joshua. Thank you for your prayers, thank you for your support.
