miraclefeet offers a variety of ways to donate and help treat clubfoot one step at a time.
miraclefeet partners with local orthopedic surgeons working in public hospitals to establish and support clubfoot clinics within the existing public health system. miraclefeet believes this is the most effective, efficient and sustainable approach to prevent the significant disability caused by untreated clubfoot around the world.
miraclefeet works collaboratively with in-country medical leaders, Ministries of Health and other healthcare organizations to establish and support national clubfoot programs. The goal is to develop a geographic network of local treatment clinics making clubfoot treatment accessible to all families.
miraclefeet works to ensure that treatment is provided at participating clinics at no charge to patients and each participating clinic receives all supplies necessary to provide free care, including braces. miraclefeet provides an on-line patient database to facilitate collection of good patient records and to monitor quality of care provided by partner doctors. miraclefeet also provides educational materials for families to support compliance over the four-year treatment.
miraclefeet partners with Ponseti International Association to provide proper Ponseti Method training to doctors and healthcare professionals, and leverages existing public health initiatives to raise awareness about clubfoot within the medical community and general public throughout the country. miraclefeet conducts site visits and provides technical assistance to its partner hospitals and medical facilities regularly.
Ultimately, miraclefeet uses the very visible, positive medical results of each program as a catalyst for policy change. Working with local partners, miraclefeet works to persuade national policy makers to formally adopt and fully fund non-surgical clubfoot treatment as a sustainable solution for a treatable physical disability.
