Story of Change
Amol*, diagnosed with Idiopathic Clubfoot at 20 months old, hailed from an economically disadvantaged family and couldn't communicate in Hindi or Marathi. Thanks to the dedicated doctors at Government Medical College (GMC) clinic and the support from Cure International India, Amol received free treatment. Through a series of 14 corrective casts, Amol's condition improved significantly, enabling him to walk without any disabilities. Moreover, he also picked up basic Hindi and Marathi vocabulary, including the greeting "Namaskar". Anmol's transformation is a testament to the impact of accessible healthcare and supportive interventions in improving the lives of individuals from marginalized communities, regardless of language or financial barriers.
