MiracleFeet UK assists in the treatment of children born with clubfoot in low- and middle-income countries.
For a child born with clubfoot, treatment unlocks doors to education and opportunity—for life. Ninety-five percent of cases can be fully treated for an average of £350 per child at a MiracleFeet-supported clinic.
The organisation provides grants to support clubfoot programs and educates the public about the issue of untreated clubfoot. MiracleFeet UK is registered with the UK Charity Commission in 2014 (charity registration number 1156868).
