Unfortunately, Favor’s mother became ill with Ebola during the 2014 outbreak in Liberia and passed away, leaving Robert as a single father to Favor and her two siblings. Favor’s mother had worked as a nurse at Phebe Hospital, caring for others who had contracted the virus before succumbing to the illness.
For Robert, his connection to FACORC and MiracleFeet is about more than just clubfoot treatment; it is also a lifeline to this devoted dad who works tirelessly to help his children. A scholarship provided by FACORC and MiracleFeet helps pay for Favor’s school fees so she can be educated alongside her peers.
We celebrate this brave clubfoot dad and the love he has for his children. Robert described how Favor runs to see him each day after school, jumping into his arms for a hug. “I do not worry about her now,” he says.
