India

As of 2021, MiracleFeet is no longer serving India. During our time there, we were able to help over 17,000 children enroll in treatment.

MiracleFeet has a long history of strengthening access to high-quality clubfoot treatment in India, providing strategic and financial support to local partners for ten years from 2011 through 2021. Through these partnerships, we have helped over 17,000 children enroll in treatment in India. While we are no longer actively funding any partners or programs in India, we remain very interested in this work and are open to supporting local clubfoot initiatives in India, especially in the form of providing affordable braces, training in the Ponseti method, and other technical assistance.

MiracleFeet started working in India in FY 2011–12 through a partnership with Cure India, an Indian-based affiliate of Cure Clubfoot Worldwide (now HopeWalks), fully funding Cure India’s programs in Maharashtra, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Madhya Pradesh, Odisha, and the Northeast India.  The programs we supported represented approximately half of Cure India’s clubfoot enrollments at the time, and Cure India was able to enroll over 12,300 new children in treatment from 2011–2017, as a result of MiracleFeet’s support. 

During that time, MiracleFeet incubated the MiracleFeet Foundation for Eliminating Clubfoot as a stand-alone non-profit to enable Indian donors to support the work there.  Once this entity was fully approved and registered with the Indian government (with its FCRA approval received in 2018), MiracleFeet began supporting treatment of clubfoot in India through this Indian-based affiliate organization.  This included programs in Uttar Pradesh, Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh, Himachel Pradesh, Haryana, and in Northeast India. MiracleFeet Foundation for Eliminating Clubfoot enrolled over 4,800 children from 2018-2021.

MiracleFeet is pleased that the government of India, through its National Health Mission and Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, is committed to ending clubfoot disability in the country.  India has a strong network of orthopedic surgeons; they are supported by the Accredited Social and Health Activist (ASHA) and Rashtriya Bal Swasthya Karyakram (RBSK) programs, which aid in early identification, referral and follow-up with children born with clubfoot across the country. 

If you are seeking treatment options or are interested in funding clubfoot care in India, please contact MiracleFeet Foundation for Eliminating Clubfoot or Clubfoot India Initiatives Trust (formerly Cure India).  If you are a clubfoot provider or an organization that needs help working to further increase access to quality treatment in India, please email us at info@miraclefeet.org or call our US office at 919 240 5572.
