One in every eight hundred children worldwide is born with clubfoot, a deformity that, if left untreated, leads to an inability to walk. More than one million people have untreated clubfoot, and there are about 175,000 new cases every year. In developed countries, clubfoot is often diagnosed via ultrasound and treated shortly after birth, and the children typically go on to live healthy, active lives. Unfortunately, 85 percent of children born with clubfoot in low- or middle-income countries have limited access to treatment. These children will often face neglect, physical and sexual abuse, a lack of access to education and the inability to lead a rewarding life. The average total cost for MiracleFeet to treat one child’s clubfoot is $500 (which takes into account the organization’s overhead costs).
