DAPHINE NAKAYI – SUCCESS STORY
Nakayi Daphine (13 Years from Bukakata village) was identified from Bukakata staying with her mother Nangobya Rose a single mother. She was born with club feet. She was operated on twice at the National Referral Hospital but the clubs reappeared after 3 months. Due to financial constraints, her mother could not go back to the hospital for surgery.
Through community volunteers in Bukakata, Daphine was connected to the Rehabilitation team of St. Vincent Pallotti’s Initiative for PWDs. Needs assessment was done and it was discovered that Daphine had to be taken back to the hospital for surgery for both her left and right foot. However she had to first undergo the process of manipulation and casting.
She was enrolled on the CoRSU Community Based Rehabilitation Program and when the
orthopaedic clinic was started at the center at Kitovu, Daphine was invited to have Casting and Manipulation (POP) done for her feet.
Surgery of both her right and left feet was conducted and it was a success. She is currently undergoing weekly medical reviews and physiotherapy.
