Three year old Hadiya was born with Spina Bifida. When Hadiya's parents, a housewife and laborer, were unable to afford the treatment their daughter needed, Hadiya became confined to their house unable to stand, let alone walk.
Thanks to your support, Hadiya visited our program with Diversity Action Network in Somaliland where she received multiple casts and a knee-ankle-foot orthoses to stabilize her balance and gait. Learn more about the importance of custom-fit orthotic braces!
Hadiya can now stand independently. Her mother is grateful for the day she thought she'd never witness - seeing her daughter walk.
