About Ayane

It may look from her photo as if Ayane does not have a left leg, but that is because it is bent upward behind her. Ayane was burned at birth, but she does not know how it happened. She does not speak Amharic, which is the language that most of the people speak here in this part of Ethiopia so our interview is very difficult.

She comes with a group of other children from a home called "Alemachen". This is a place for children whose parents cannot take care of them. Here they learn and play with other children that experience the same stigma and stereotypes that they have dealt with on their own.

One of the main caretakers at Alemachen tells me that Ayane is very quiet and does not seem as happy as the other children. This could be due to the fact that communication is harder for her, but it could be something else that we do not know. Hopefully her time here at CURE will soften her up and possibly open her up to the other children or staff here. One good thing is that some of the nurses speak her language, and we've had several other kids in the ward that speak it as well. Whatever the case is, God has a plan for this little girl, and thankfully it includes releasing her knee that has been bent backwards for her entire life.

Please join me in following Ayane's story as she gains more strength and confidence, and I'm sure several friends along the way on her journey to healing.
