Programs: miraclefeet measures long term success in terms of how many sustainable clubfoot clinics it helps to create, which will in turn eradicate the unnecessary and permanent disability caused by untreated clubfoot. miraclefeet chooses exemplary partners in the field, local clubfoot champions, to build and implement clubfoot treatment programs. miraclefeet partners have years of experience in the Ponseti Method and are knowledgeable of their country’s public health system, culture, patient demographics, and how best a clubfoot program will work within their communities. miraclefeet’s partnerships ensure long-term success by creating change at the clinic/hospital level, the results and cost-effectiveness of which are used to drive policy change at the national level. The long-term goal of miraclefeet is to eradicate disability caused by neglected clubfoot by creating locally-led, sustainable clubfoot clinics.

Mission:
miraclefeet is dedicated to providing proper treatment for children born with clubfoot in developing countries. miraclefeet partners with local orthopedic surgeons working in public hospitals to establish and support clubfoot clinics within the existing public health system. miraclefeet believes this is the most effective, efficient and sustainable approach to prevent the significant disability caused by untreated clubfoot around the world. miraclefeet can fully treat a child with clubfoot in a developing country for about $250 per child, transforming his or her life forever.
Results:
miraclefeet now partners with more than 60 clubfoot clinics in 12 countries to treat more than 4,500 children.
