What is Clubfoot?
Clubfoot is a deformity that twists the foot downward and inward, making walking difficult or often impossible. Left untreated, clubfoot leads to a lifetime of disability
On average it costs £120 to heal one child, from start to finish, over a five year treatment period.
Established in 2019 to eliminate permanent disability caused from clubfoot, Clubfoot India UK focuses on the children in India, especially the under-privileged, where cases of clubfoot are much more prevalent due to fewer, well-equipped treatment facilities, lack of awareness among parents and limited training among medical practitioners.
In a country where 1 in every 826 children are born with clubfoot each year (i.e. approximately 50,000) the mission of Clubfoot India UK, through its strong network of local partners and state governments across all 29 states, to establish free clubfoot clinics, provide adequate training and continue to raise awareness remains vital.
Help us in our mission to eliminate clubfoot and prevent a child from a life-long disability if left untreated.
What we do
We help children in India born with clubfoot, to be free from a lifetime of disability.
We do this through the support of clubfoot clinics that are recognized and officially licensed by the Ministry of Health, in every state of India.
But we cannot do this without your support.
Please help us today.
