LAST WEEK, my wife Dr. Pier Boutin, sent an email to my online community about a four-year-old boy with severe clubfeet, Little Mo. This is a boy she met on her trip to Morocco and felt compelled to help. The way the email was sent may have seemed odd or suspicious, but her heart is in the right place. As Mother Theresa once said, “We can do no great things, only small things with great love.”
Little Mo and his father will come to live with our family for 2 to 3 months in Massachusetts while he recuperates from surgery while the incisions completely heal and he learns to walk and run. If he doesn’t stay with us, his wounds won’t heal and may become infected because the living conditions are harsh in the remote mountains of the Haut Atlas.
If you want to help Little Mo, you may read more about him and/or donate by clicking here.
If you want more information, please contact Pier directly at:
To your good health,
