A more perfect world, one child at a time.
PPW delivers health care to the underserved, poverty-stricken children of the world who otherwise would be disabled for their entire lives. We observe first-hand these beautiful children being given a new chance at life to walk and have normal lives — an experience that is extremely humbling.
Renewed hope is a powerful emotion to observe, as seen in the smiles and tears of appreciation of these young children and their families in the recovery room.
Big impact on little lives
Narcisa, like many young children in Ecuador, suffered from clubfoot — a condition where her feet pointed downward and the soles faced each other.
Left unattended, clubfoot leads to an inability to walk or perform simple daily tasks. Narcisa is lucky, though, as her life dramatically changed the day the PPW team was able to successfully perform her surgery.
