By providing organizational and financial support, we enable our partners to fully treat children born with clubfoot in developing countries for an average of $250 per child, transforming their lives forever. Unlike so many of the world’s problems, this one is solvable – and surprisingly inexpensive. miraclefeet supports local health practitioners who are trained in the Ponseti method, a non-surgical treatment that involves a series of simple, properly applied plaster casts that are changed weekly.
In 95% of cases, this results in full correction of the foot in four to six weeks of casting. Following casting, a brace is worn at night for several years to prevent relapse. $250 per child is a small price to pay to transform a child’s life.
