Following Rotary’s commitment to lead global efforts to fight disease and save mothers and children, this Rotary Action Group provides the opportunity for Rotarians everywhere to help children afflicted with clubfoot, a debilitating but treatable condition.
All donations are tax deductible. RAG4Clubfoot Treasurer will send a tax receipt to you for all donations over $250.
HEF sends out a tax receipt for any donation of $250 or higher. Tax receipts are released at the end of the year. Any questions, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Your financial contribution will provide direct support to train doctors in the Ponseti Method, who will in turn train others across the globe with this gold standard method for the treatment for clubfoot.
Rotary Clubs can multiply their impact even further by applying for a grant from your Rotary District or TRF matching grants. These grants can expand the reach of treatment of clubfoot into impoverished areas with limited resources.
Other Ways Rotarians Can Help
- Assist families and caregivers with logistical support, including transportation, housing food and other needs.
- Assist families with the provision of nighttime braces to complete Ponseti treatment.
- Assist with public awareness to reduce the stigma, to spread the message that clubfoot is treatable and to promote early referral to appropriate treatment centers.
- Advocate with governments and health officials to provide the facilities and resources to treat clubfoot deformity.
