Every three minutes a child is born with clubfoot. 95% can be treated for life.
4 out of 5 risk not receiving care without our work.
MiracleFeet is eliminating a major disability worldwide. A common birth defect overlooked for decades in many parts of the world, clubfoot can be corrected without surgery in just a few weeks. We partner with health workers in 29 countries to bring the low-cost solution to children who need it today—and for generations.
Children with clubfoot cannot wait for long.
Treatment should begin before a child learns to walk. Over 70,000 have been born with this disability since COVID-19 impacted health care in countries where MiracleFeet works. Your gift will help more receive the care they urgently need, now that services have safely resumed.
Without treatment, children living with disabilities in low- and middle-income countries experience high rates of physical and sexual abuse, neglect, and poverty—according to decades of UN data—and are the least likely to receive an education or to access basic healthcare throughout their lives. It shouldn’t be this way.
What does changing a life cost?
MiracleFeet’s average cost to treat a child with clubfoot is $481. Individuals fund over half of our work. Together, we are reaching those most at risk of being left behind with the treatment they need to experience mobility, independence, and opportunity for life. Few investments have this kind of impact.
