Zazay is a 12-year old Afghan boy born with a congenital disease called 'club feet'. Because of that disease, Zazay couldn’t walk properly. His disability prevented him from living a normal life like the other children of his age.
His family of 7 is so poor it could not afford the surgery that Zazay needed. Zazay and his family heard about the Children's House programme through the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), partner of La Chaîne de l'Espoir in Afghanistan.
Zazay was admitted to the French Medical Institute for Mothers & Children (FMIC) of Kabul in January 2017 to receive the surgery that would fix his disability. The surgery went very well and Zazay recovered quickly.
Today, Zazay is very happy and enjoying his new life, running and playing with his friends.
Since 2008 and the creation of La Chaîne de l'Espoir's Children's House, more than 6,000 children have been treated for free, just like Zazay. They have benefitted from medical treatment, accommodation in the House and transportation, all covered by La Chaîne de l'Espoir.
All of this was made possible with the hard work of donors, partners and dedicated staff.
Thank you all for your contribution to the benefit of the Afghan sick and unprivileged children.
