About Our Work

MiracleFeet has partnered with the Zimbabwe Sustainable Clubfoot Programme (ZSCP) since 2012 to add new clinics to a growing network of hospitals that provide Ponseti treatment. ZSCP was established in 2010 to address the need for effective and sustainable treatment of children with clubfoot – a need that was identified through encountering cases of poorly managed clubfoot during community outreach. Zimbabwe has a strong commitment to rehabilitation and preventative medicine, with health care professionals open to minimally invasive treatments such as the Ponseti Method. Physiotherapists run the clubfoot clinics in collaboration with hospital doctors who perform tenotomies under local anesthesia. ZSCP has a strong relationship with the Ministry of Health and is able to produce its own braces at an in-country, low-cost, brace-making facility.
