Clubfoot Awareness Month

“Clubfoot Awareness Month” is an initiative by Dr. Krupesh Thacker and Dr. Pooja Thacker, operating within the framework of the Give Vacha Foundation NGO, under the guidance of Dr. Shashikant Thacker. As a pivotal aspect of the Global Clubfoot Awareness Parv initiative, this month-long campaign begins on May 7th, coinciding with the birthday of Clubfoot warrior Parv Thacker, who serves as the Global Ambassador of Global Clubfoot Awareness Parv. Extending until June 7th each year, this initiative comprises a diverse range of activities aimed at raising awareness about clubfoot. From extensive drives to commemorate events like the World Clubfoot Day celebration on June 3rd, honouring the groundbreaking contributions of Dr. Ignacio Ponseti in clubfoot treatment, this month-long observance underscores the collective dedication to advocating for early detection and effective treatment of clubfoot worldwide.

It includes an online awareness drive through the YouTube, Facebook & Instagram handles of the project ambassador Parv Thacker. Krup Music is doing fundraising activities online by selling goodies on their YouTube channel which has 200,000 + subscribers. Volunteers are conducting a fundraising drive on the ground to support the initiative.
