Moussa is the program manager for Hope Walks in Niger, his home country. He first became involved in clubfoot treatment when his son, Japhet, was born with the birth defect. He began as a parent advisor at a Hope Walks partner clinic guiding and helping other parents through the treatment process.
Japhet is 8-years-old. He enjoys playing soccer, running and doing the things most young boys enjoy. While he has no memory of his clubfoot, he understands how his life would be different if he never received treatment. He is a living testimony to how your support can change lives.
Natalie is a board member of Hope Walks and the Image and Brand Consultant of the company she created, Signature Style.
She first learned of Hope Walks after her youngest daughter, Anna, was born with a clubfoot. After experiencing the blessing of correctable action to eliminate Anna’s clubfoot, Natalie and her family have invested in helping others experience the same.
Scott is the president of Hope Walks. A graduate of Messiah College, Scott worked as a nurse in Pediatric Intensive Care Units across the country before becoming involved in international health work in 2000 with Samaritan’s Purse.

Clubfoot is a birth defect that twists the foot downward and inward, making walking difficult or impossible. While it cannot be prevented, it can be corrected.
We use the Ponseti method, the gold standard of clubfoot treatment. The process involves weekly casting for four to eight weeks followed by braces to maintain the correction up to about age 5.
We pair quality clubfoot treatment with compassionate care from counselors (called parent advisors), all while empowering local healthcare workers and educating parents and caregivers.
