Ana Vitoria on a horse


Ana Vitória was born and lives in Jaraguá – GO. She likes playing with animals. Since her birth, her parents have tried different treatments for her congenital clubfoot. When she was twenty-two months old, they took her to the Sarah Hospital. The family was pleased with this newfound hope for their daughter’s clubfoot treatment, since there were no such options in their hometown; Jaraguá is 160 miles away from Sarah Hospital in Brasília. With support from social aid programs, her father, Mr Lúcio, was able to make the weekly trip so his daughter could continue receiving treatment.
