About Lydia

Lydia doesn’t know for sure if a little accident she had in second grade was the cause of her problem. But at the moment, she has nothing else to blame for her current foot deformity. So for now, the story is that after school one day, she went outside to play & ended up getting her foot severely mangled by a barbed wire fence. First aid didn’t do much for the pain and swelling that ensued, so she was taken to a local hospital. While admitted there, doctors apparently operated on her, putting steel supports in her foot.

Fast forward six years. The steel supports don’t seem to be working, and her foot looks seriously angled. Unfortunately, the angling seems to be increasing, which is why her father Daniel got concerned enough to seek medical intervention. Lydia has also started experiencing pain now. “Walking has now become painful and strenuous, especially when I walk long distances,” she told me. But the biggest concern for Daniel has been the shoe expense - “The more severe the foot becomes, the faster she deforms her shoes, so the more pairs we have to buy.”

Now about one month from surgery, we’re planning a procedure for Lydia that, God willing, will help get everything straightened out. My short time with her revealed a pleasant young lady, even though she remained politely quiet and attentive during most of our time together. I can’t wait to have more time to really get to know her when they come to Kijabe, and I think the barbed wire story won’t hold a candle to the story of healing God’s given us the chance to tell.

  2. 04/04/2014Guess who is now discharged??? Yep, Lydia is now officially done with her treatment with us at CURE, its been close to two years but we thank God that the process is successfully over for her. She was happy to let us take one more photo of her, holding the brace that she has been using and of course showing off her very well corrected foot. We thank God with her and pray that God will lead her here on. Thank you so much for having been part of her process, either by praying for her or even by giving financially to her surgery, may God truly bless you.
