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). A tenotomy is a surgical procedure to lengthen the baby's Achilles tendon to correct the position of his foot. This final stage of correction will allow the baby to place his feet flat on the ground."
