About our work
Since 2014, MiracleFeet has worked to increase access to clubfoot treatment throughout the Philippines. The program has expanded to cover almost all regions of the country, providing free treatment to families of children in need.
We currently support 30 clinics throughout the country: 24 at government hospitals, two in private clinics, and one at a community-based treatment resource center.
In early 2014, MiracleFeet first forged partnerships with three public hospitals in the Philippines – Southern Philippines Medical Center (SPMC) in Davao City, Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center (VSMMC) in Cebu, and West Visayas State University Medical Center (WVSUMC) in Iloilo. Soon after, a partnership formed with the Walk and Work Foundation.
In 2018, we began a formal partnership with the Philippine NGO Council on Population, Health, and Welfare, Inc. (PNGOC) to greatly expand clubfoot treatment throughout the Philippines.
To ensure treatment quality, MiracleFeet and PNGOC lead a technical working group of Filipino pediatric orthopedic surgeons and health providers from partner hospitals and clinics to support strategic directions for expanding quality care. A Medical Advisor specializing in supportive supervision and the ACT Curriculum regularly consults with our partner clinics and leads refresher courses.
