The family members blamed the mother for the child’s predicament. Nevertheless, the resolute mother decided not to give up and began searching for avenues to treat her child. One fine day a group of parents whose child was born with clubfoot as well recommended that she take her kid to the MRMC Basaveshwar hospital.

They are extremely grateful to the CURE Clinic and the Basaveshwar Hospital Doctors.
