His mother Kabajimu took him to the local hospital several times but the deformity didn’t go away. “They put him in plasters several times but the foot remained bent” His mother narrates. A neighbor to Kabajimu’s sister came back home from CoRSU with an information leaflet which she gave to Kabajimu and she informed her of CoRSU’s services. This encouraged Kabajimu to bring her child all the way from Kamwenge to CoRSU. At CoRSU Ruhweza received surgery and rehabilitation for his clubfoot he can now walk with ease. He is still using a foot splint until the foot is completely healed.
