ZCF completed 7 successful years
Since inception on 2010, the ZCF project of LMRF focused on only one thing – cure clubfoot of all children of Chittagong division by applying Ponseti Method in best possible way. After 7 years of extraordinary journey, we believe that ZCF had never deviated from this focus and managed to put a remarkable impact in establishing Ponseti Method in this region of Bangladesh. “Walking Clubfoot – No More” – keeping this motto in heart, ZCF overcame many obstacles in these years, gained recognition from many local and international organizations and most importantly won heart of 3500+ families who had no place to go to change the fate of their clubfoot born children.
At the dawn of 8th year, let’s look back and check what we had achieved in last 7 years of wonderful journey.
