When Clubfoot India program was formally registered on the 8th April 2009, it was the beginning of a series of struggle.
Struggle in finding a workable program model for India
Struggle in identifying designated clubfoot clinics across India
Struggle in recruiting the right program team for India
Struggle in convincing like-minded partners to support Clubfoot India
Struggle in singing Agreements with 29 State Governments in India
Struggle in registering Doctors for Ponseti training from across India
Struggle in retaining children on a regular follow up for 5 years.
Joyful Struggle every day after day and today its a decade of several good and not so good struggle.
Today when we look back at a decade of our journey, everything was worth the struggle. It is truly a decade of Joyful Journey. Together we made our dreams come true. In 2008 it was just an idea and an unclear desire to see many children treated for clubfoot in India.
56,000 children are enrolled in the program from 312 designated clubfoot clinic locations
5,000 doctors participated in the 80 training workshops
205 dedicate staff team who are spread across all the 29 states
A decade of successful journey was possible only because of you. Doctors, Rotarians, Parents, Govt officials, Partners, Children, Well-wishers, Donors, Volunteers, Staff Team and the list continues.
– We can only thank you on behalf of all the 56,000 children and the thousands of new children who are added month after month…
– We can only thank you on behalf of Thousands of Doctors who serve these children…
– We can only thank you on behalf of all our partners who raise resources and funds for this noble work across India.
Our Joyful Struggle will continue until our vision to see India free of disability from clubfoot come true.
