Morocco: A Special Touch in Clubfoot Care

September 07, 2023

“I love specializing in clubfoot because I can use touch to identify the degree of the symptoms and the curvature of the feet,” shares Rachida Bettioui, a physiotherapist at the Ibn Sina hospital in Rabat, Morocco. This is especially important to Rachida, who lost her sight completely when she was 30 years old. Today, Rachida walks to and from the hospital with no cane or assistance, a 20-kilometer journey. Watching her work, it’s easy to see why she’s so good at her job – because she loves it – loves working with children, helping families, and transforming the futures of those affected by clubfoot.
