an award-winning non-profit support organisation

We are an award-winning non-profit support organisation that improves the lives of children born with clubfoot.

Our story started in 2003 with the birth of a boy with clubfoot in South Africa. After her son’s successful treatment by Dr Ponseti in Iowa, Karen Mara Moss returned home and told their story to local doctors. Karen founded STEPS in 2005 to introduce and promote the Ponseti Method of clubfoot treatment in southern Africa and support families going through treatment.


I looked for help on the internet and I found help from this amazing woman Karen Moss who changed my life.

Everyone at the clinic told me that if I took my son to his clubfoot appointments and followed the process everything would be okay. They gave me hope.

There were struggles and obstacles with transport, and taking time off work to make sure we came to each appointment, but it was worth it. Lee’s feet are normal, he loves playing soccer and going to the park.
