Fikre, our Liaison officer, was excited to help lead the group on this bright Saturday morning!
Our Head Ward Nurse, Sami, was the MC during the Walk from Meskel Square to Black Lion Hospital. He did a wonderful job spreading awareness about World Clubfoot Day!
The staff was ready to tell locals all about World Clubfoot Day and how to get involved as they marched!
We marched the streets of the capital chanting, “Clubfoot can be treated!”
Dr. Mary and her daughter, Ally, stopped for a quick photo op!
Dr. Birhanu Ayana, Asst. Professor at Black Lion Hospital’s Orthopedic Department, took a break once we reached the end of the march to Black Lion Hospital to chat with our Dr. Tim!
Our Executive Director, Adey, gave the keynote welcoming speech and closing remarks at the “Symposium on Changes, Challenges and Prospects of Ponseti Clubfoot Management” held at Churchill Hotel.
The day couldn’t end without capturing a group photo at the presentation, which was held at Churchill Hotel.

Well, hello there bright eyes! This is Dorcas and she’s pretty fun.
CURE was involved in the Henry Wanyoike Run, a run that helps raise awareness for people with disabilities. Unfortunately, the START sign had a bit of a run in with a piece of machinery sitting on the back of a truck!

It was by the hands of these capable men, and others like them, that CURE built a new house for our Anchoress, Christine. We recently dedicated the house and prayed over it.
Justus really wanted a toy, so we brought him this tiny car from the playroom that he could keep for his very own. “I want a bigger one,” he told us the next day. But he still gave us a big grin when we took his photo with it.

Pauline has her doll close to her, and she taking very good care of it.
Terry did not want to leave her mother’s back, and if any hospital staff came near them, she would take cover. She is scared of injections.
Tevin, one of our patients, in the playroom was giving some serious attention to his toys.
Cute baby Leon was here at the hospital several days ago. His smile is hard to forget.

Malita was having a lot of fun playing Jenga.
Evelista is back for some physiotherapy!
Our new physiotherapist Shadreck is great with the kids, including Tracy!
Hooke doesn’t enjoy physiotherapy, but on this specific day, he was doing well!
Physiotherapist Jo has been volunteering at CURE Malawi and working with cerebral palsy children for a long time now. She has been living and working with children in Africa for even longer than that. She has a huge heart for the kids and we’re sad that she’s going back to the UK, but will be praying that God blesses the work of her hands there, too.
Faith’s parents have both been coming to help her get casting treatment. We’re impressed by their dedication to make sure Faith gets her clubfoot cured!

Medical Records Clerk Liz gets in her daily stretching while writing in our wide (but required by the health department!) records book.
Joshriel was cool as could be after his surgery. After all, as he told us matter of factly, “It was just a little operation!”
Ralp thought he found the perfect hiding spot to take a break, until Shine discovered it, too!

Ian works hard during clubfoot clinics to make sure castable clubfoot is treated.
Lillian had clubfoot as a baby. She started Ponseti treatment when she was 3 days old. Now she is eight and clubfoot free. Here, she shows clubfoot parents that indeed it is possible.
The face Comfort makes when his feet are touched in a way he doesn’t like.
Karen graduated from casting! She has been given her very first set of braces.
