Description : ICRC website photo gallery, 25.10.2016: "The ICRC works on improving access and quality of services available to people with disabilities, by providing technical and material support to centres nationwide run by the National Authority of Prosthetics and Orthotics (NAPO). Asmaran has clubfoot on both feet. She is less than a month old. This is Asmaran's second visit to Khartoum Cheshire Home. Babies born with clubfoot have one or both feet facing inwards and downwards, preventing them from placing the soles of their feet flat on the ground. They are usually treated through rehabilitation. However, in some cases, tenotomy — a small surgical procedure — may be required."
