Ennayat is healed-
Baby ennayat had Clubfoot in her left leg. Just two plaster casts and a tenotomy ensured her foot is corrected and today she is on braces. What a joyful moment for her family. They couldn’t stop smiling !
Baby Sahang Gandharva was brought to our Gangtok clinic in September 2017. After the child’s birth the villagers told the parents that they should not treat the child because it’s a curse from God but the child’s father was adamant and found out about a CIIT clinic in his area. After counseling, the father felt relieved and started the treatment. Now Sahang is walking, playing football like a normal kid and visits us regularly for follow up. His father is so proud that he did not pay heed to what his community said and he did what was right for his child. He says there’s nothing like curse on this earth and we totally agree with him. Clubfoot is a common birth defect which can be easily corrected with the right kind of treatment. We also went to visit Sahang at his home and were surprised by the welcome. His father is a musician and played a nice piece of music with his traditional musical instrument as a thank you gift to us.
