Pere Noel with the children of our facilities manager Yssoufou.
A young visitor observes a moment of silence during our Christmas celebration where we had roughly 300 neighborhood children join us for singing, food, presents, and an explanation of why Christians celebrate Christmas in a majority Muslim country.
Cooling off in the shade.
I feel like this photo summarizes the week well; welcoming, warm, and playful.

Happy smiles and tears of joy for our last clinic of patients this week!
Gracerie waits in anticipation as Dr. Santa writes “fully healed” to be one of God’s gifts for her this Christmas!
The Jollibee is a famous fast food chain where the Bee is almost always in a kid’s party, and with a childlike heart, Nurse Delia got to celebrate when the Bee came to visit!
Seeing Santa and the Jollibee Bee at the same place was a treat for Hadassah. She calls, “Hugs! Hugs! Picture! Picture!” as she ran towards them!
And it’s a dab! Oh, we mean, it’s a wrap! See you all again next year!

Can you see the joy (and maybe a little mischief) in Esther’s eyes?
We met this girl at a mobile clinic, but her name is slipping our mind. That doesn’t make her adorable silliness any less real though!
Irene, can you please smile at us like this every time we see you?
Riko (on the right) and his friend are having a lot of fun on our teeter totter.
Elvis, our CUREkids Intern, shares his notebook with Moses, so that Moses can practice his writing.
Diane is a friend of CURE who came for a visit. She is working on a project that will really assist our program. She shares a fun moment as Joshua and his dad work on a Christmas coloring page that we gave to Joshua.
Lucky is really quite charming.
We enjoy Mary Faith a lot!
