Children born with treatable disabilities, such has club feet, are often left untreated in rural areas. These children struggle with day to day life, being in pain while hobbling on malformed and sometimes reversed feet. This makes it impossible for them to go to school and they face a life of being discriminated and shunned by the local communities they live in.
By working with local organisations and hospitals, KidzCare have been able to organise the necessary operations and rehabilitation programs for these children and over the years this program has transform the lives of hundreds of children and given them the chance to walk and live a normal life.
With further collaboration with the Rotary Club of Dar es Salaam and One World One Smile, KidzCare have organised Medical and Dental Camps in our local communities, where hundreds of patients were treated for a variety of illnesses and diseases. These camps combined with the follow-up treatment when needed have had great effect on the general health and wellbeing of the people in the community as many could not afford the medical treatments.
In our schools, Kidzcare have a implemented a Worm and Weigh program whereby at the beginning of each term, we check the weight of each child and give out deworming medicine to the children. This helps us to track and keep an eye on the general health and development of the children.
