At the age of three, Shadrack was diagnosed with a congenital disability characterized by the underdevelopment of his lower right limb. The severity of underdevelopment left Shadrack with limited functionality of his limb and the possibility of further complications. His doctors agreed that the best course of action for Shadrack's mobility and overall quality of life was a below-the-knee amputation.
Thanks to your support, this year, 13 year-old Shadrack visited our program with CoRSU in Uganda where he was fitted with his first Joshi modular prosthetic limb. Our Joshi's high-quality, and modern components enable Shadrack to walk more comfortably and confidently than ever before. He knows that when he needs us, we'll be there. Next year Shadrack will begin High School where his dreams of becoming a doctor will be one step closer.
On behalf of Shadrack, and his mother who is incredibly "grateful to all those that are making it possible” for her son -- thank you.
