Nurse Forcina helps Falida wake up from anesthesia after a wound inspection. Falida wasn’t very happy. She wanted to see her mommy Anna, not Forcina!

Malawi_POW_8

Ibrahim was grumpy and in pain for most of the day after a wound inspection, but when we caught up with him afterwards he had a lollipop (and maybe some painkillers). He was quite happy!

Malawi_POW_22

Silaji and Catherine play with Catherine’s daddy’s phone! Avanell had to sneak up to take this photo or else they would have jumped up and asked her to take a selfie video of them on her phone!

Look out world, Benson is cast-free and on the move!

Coloring

Rizz Ann and Krizylle were roommates this past week and colored together, albeit very seriously, in the playroom!

Ralp

So many choices… Ralp digs through a pile of metal plates and rods to find just the right one to set Rizz Ann’s arm straight.

RamboJun

He claims that it was an extra sweaty day in the operating room, but we know that Dr. Jun actually likes channeling Rambo for challenging cases!

Swing

Kathryn was convinced that pretty much everything in the playroom was scary. The swing was the one exception, which she found to be an “acceptable” level of fun.

DrJunGirls

On their discharge day, Rizz Ann and Krizylle wanted to color one more picture. They wanted to make “Thank You” cards for Dr. Jun who took great care of them during their stay!

MobileClinic

Many of our missionaries travel through mountains and valleys to take CUREkids into the city for surgery. This time, some members of our team traced back their tracks to do a mobile clinic.

PatientlyWaiting

Mom and baby patiently waited in line so they can see the doctor and get scheduled for surgery!

GenSanClinic

We were ecstatic to meet the kids during the mobile clinic for follow-up and screening. They were just as excited to meet us so that they could have surgery!
