About Blessings

Some of the kids who come in to CURE have deformities that can be hidden by clothing or is more internal to begin with. There are kids who can’t hide their deformities though; kids who walk around everyday with a blaring reminder of why they can’t play with all of their peers without being taunted. One-year-old Blessings Nkhoma has a greatly enlarged toe on his right foot which is the cause of all this small boy’s trouble.

Blessings was born with this deformity and as his foot grew, his toe grew exponentially as well. His right foot cannot fit in a shoe and so his toe is always exposed. It draws a lot of attention from the people around him and along with attention comes the ridicule. Though Blessings isn’t yet fully aware of the reaction his condition elicits, his mom is. She says she would be very appreciative if Blessing’s condition could be cured.

Lucky for her, that is exactly what is going to happen now that they have come across CURE! Blessings will have his toe removed and he will be able to wear shoes and play with all the other kids without any more problems!
