Seven-year-old Bereket Bedo is a typical boy in almost every way, but sadly one of the things he most desires to do he cannot – that is to walk and run with ease. Bereket was born with an unknown musculoskeletal condition that makes walking difficult and running even more so. When he was very young he did not know any different, but now that he is school age he recognizes that he struggles to keep up with his classmates.
Earlier this year Bereket was blessed to receive a generous donation that allowed him to begin seeking medical consultation. He has since visited a doctor in Addis numerous times. The doctor has a plan to improve his condition. An important part of his treatment includes wearing leg braces, which will be adjusted every couple of months. We are so excited to witness Bereket’s progress and look forward to him gaining more freedom as treatments continue to improve his condition.
