The Walk for Life program in Bangladesh enables children born with clubfoot to walk, run, and play.
With free treatment, children such as Jandi and Rafi who are born with clubfoot can reach their full potential, and have the best possible chance at escaping the poverty cycle.
About clubfoot in Bangladesh
In Bangladesh, 3,500 children are born with clubfoot every year. There are many barriers to seeking treatment, including lack of awareness in the community, lack of access to health care, and lack of training for medical professionals.
The Walk for Life program:
offers free treatment for children with clubfoot using non-surgical techniques (Ponseti method)
educates doctors, nurses and physiotherapists
improves awareness of clubfoot and its treatment
reduces the stigma around clubfoot.
