Health Desk-- 5th June, 2018: Nearly 1,155 clubfoot babies got cost-free treatment in Rajshahi Medical College Hospital (RMCH) with financial support from Walk for Life Project, reports BSS.

RMCH’s Department of Orthopedic has been implementing the project with the main thrust of curing and curbing clubfoot deformities since May 1, 2010.

The vision of the Project is to see zero walking clubfoot that means no child born with clubfoot would walk on their deformed foot in Rajshahi region.

The Walk for Life Project works to build capacity of local medical personnel on Ponseti method, raise awareness among the population on clubfoot and its treatment and to establish clinics for treatment and rehabilitation.

The observation came at a post-rally discussion here on Sunday.

Department of Orthopedic and RMCH jointly organized the programme in association with Glenco Foundation to mark the World Clubfoot Day-2018.

Among others, RMCH Director Brig Gen Jamilur Rahman, Head of Department of Orthopedic Dr MAK Shamsuddin and its Assistant Professor Dr Obaidul Haque, addressed in the event.
