I worked on a project with MiracleFeet through Stanford's Design for Extreme Affordability course. We were enlisted to help the organization increase patient retention of their life-changing services. Over the 6 month period that we worked with MiracleFeet I was blown away by the dedication, responsiveness, and intimate local knowledge that the organization had. They either people on the ground, or very strong local partnerships which increase the efficacy of their services. Would highly recommend working with and donating to this organization.

Since I've been working with MiracleFeet, I've learned about the work they are doing to eradicate ClubFoot. During Innovations in Healthcare Annual Forum, Chesca CEO at MiracleFeet gave one of the most heartfelt and emotional presentations that shined a light on the issues people with clubfoot face. MiracleFeet is one of those organizations that just gets it!

MIracle Feet does a miraculous job, improving the lives of of so many children suffering from club foot. Their relatively simple and inexpensive procedure has made such a difference for these kids, allowing them to lead normal lives instead of the isolation they faced before treatment. Good job!

I have volunteered for Miraclefeet organization with two of my friends. The three of us are from Israel and we traveled to India as Miraclefeet volunteers. In India we took documentary footage of club feet patients miraclefeet treats, as well as footage of doctors and government officials who miraclefeet works with and trains. In our expedition we have learned through the many interviews what an important job miraclefeet is doing in India. Miraclefeet has a key role in treating and repairing clubfeet deformities in India and the rest of the world. In India 75,000 children are born with clubfeet and if they aren’t treated they become handicapped. This is a sad reality, but with the help of Miraclefeet India, which provides free of cost treatment we can change this reality. I wish every child who suffers from clubfeet in the world will know about this wonderful organization and will receive treatment from it.

I had the pleasure of working with Miraclefeet through Stanford University's Design for Extreme Affordability Course. Not only do they do amazing work, their staff is also kind and thoughtful! They fully supported us in our project and hosted us as we visited their sites in Madagasacar. There, we met many of the families Miraclefeet has provided clubfoot care to and saw firsthand the impact of their work. I would cherish the opportunity to work with Miraclefeet again.

I've been a MiracleFeet supporter and donor since 2017 and am thrilled that such an organization exists to help children around the world have a chance at a good life! With the treatment afforded through MiracleFeet kids will be able to walk and run and thus are given the opportunity to live better. It makes me very happy to know that my small contribution goes to this great cause of helping children, especially because I too was born with club foot. May God bless all the children suffering with club foot! There is a cure! Thank you MiracleFeet for all the good you do, God bless you!

MiracleFeet aim to help children born with clubfeet to walk, and this requires working in complex environments and throughout the health system in many countries with resource constrained medical care.

I have worked with the MiracleFeet team as an independent evaluator, a mentor to clubfoot trainers and in the development of innovative processes and tools to support health workers who treat children with clubfoot. MiracleFeet demonstrates vision and accountability through seeking to close the gap between the ideal and the real by looking for systemic challenges in our health systems that, if overcome, would put us in a better position to end clubfoot disability, and enable all children born with clubfoot to run free.

I had a wonderful experience as a graduate student volunteer with MiracleFeet during the past year. Their team is comprised of knowledgeable, driven, and passionate staff who work collaboratively to achieve goals. As a volunteer, I felt encouraged by others and was able to contribute in ways that met both personal learning objectives as well as needs of the organization.

Thanks for the opportunity!

I volunteered as a student consultant to work with MiracleFeet through my MBA program at Duke University. As part of the project, my team got to travel to Nicaragua and witness the impactful work of the local doctors, clinic assistants and MiracleFeet staff on the ground. In performing our work, it was extremely easy to work and communicate with the MiracleFeet team. I especially appreciated that they wanted to prioritize our personal learning in addition to completing the project. If you are looking for a nonprofit to support in the medical device space, I highly recommend MiracleFeet.

Currently, I am an MBA student at Duke University. A team of students, including me, consulted for MiracleFeet and assisted with solving an operational challenge. Hands-down, this was one of the best MBA experiences.

MiracleFeet has a significant mission and it was evident that the staff was passionate about giving children the gift of walking again. Their passion was contagious as our team became set on fire to also make a difference for the children in need of a brace.

Working with the team at MiracleFeet was exceptional. The team was knowledgeable, friendly, and on top of it.

We are grateful to have had the experience of working with MiraclFeet and hope that we were a little piece in the puzzle to giving children the gift of walking again.

As a pediatric physical therapist in the United States, I often take for granted the resources we have available to us -- even though my own sister was born with bilateral clubfoot. After visiting a third world country, I was struck by the amount of kids affected by treatable birth deformities. MiracleFeet is changing the lives of thousands of these children with their treatment interventions. I am personally and professionally proud to support this organization!

The first time I heard what Miracle Feet is doing in our world, I knew that my husband and I needed to come along side of them and help in the one way we could.

We decided to give on a monthly basis and are so pleased with the results. Can you imagine impacting a person's life in such a way that the future has limitless potential?

Thank you, Miracle Feet, for all that you do to make a difference, one foot at a time!

Miraclefeet is our new and favorite non profit. It has personal meaning to my husband and I. His daughter was born with club feet and has overcome so many challenges to lead a beautiful full life. We thank God that she was born in the USA. This made it easier to get the help she needed. Children in other countries are not as fortunate. This is why we decided to become a regular donor. We know that this money will help to change lives. We could not be happier with our choice of non profit. Go, Miraclefeet!

Miraclefeet is a wonderful organization. Our son was born with clubfoot and we wanted to donate his shoes and braces, and we found that through Miraclefeet. Every year our son has a fundraiser on his birthday to donate to Miraclefeet to help kids like him get the same chance he has to walk, run, and play.

Miraclefeet is an amazing non profit. My 10 year old was born with clubfeet and runs a double header basketball fundraiser game every year to support Miraclefeet because he believes that everyone born with clubfeet deserves to receive treatment and the gift of walking, just like him!

As a clubbie I have an unfair insight into clubfoot and its effects ;) What a privilege to be able to support the team at Miraclefeet to do what they do across so many countries; giving children back mobility for life! This treatment is indeed transformational and offers so much to individuals, households and their communities. I intend to continue my active support of Miraclefeet and encourage others to do so as well.
