Shafique Pirani (member of RC of Barnaby in Vancouver, Canada) recently provided details about an original Ponseti Method training grant in the 1990s funded by Rotary. He heard from an individual visiting Uganda that had connected with a trainer whom Shafique had trained over 20 years ago! He was one of the initial trainees in one of the first Ponseti Method training grants funding by Rotary.
This clinic was established in 2000 as part of the Uganda Clubfoot Project and continues to this day. It’s annual census is between 250-300 new cases per year and between 5,000-6,000 children have benefited from Ponseti Method.
The white coated gentleman to the right is the key person. He is affectionately known as Mr Clubfoot!
