“When I learned that my child could have an operation, my heart was filled with joy! Omali was born deformed and because there was no hospital that could help children who have conditions like his in my area, we never took him to hospital. Omali is my last child of three, and he is the only one born deformed. When a missionary saw Omali, I was put in contact to get him treated, and it has been amazing to come to CURE for help. Omali tells me that he feels pain, and I know that coming will make a huge change in my son’s life. Even though we had to cross the Mozambique-Malawi border to come, I know it is not in vain. My son will be healed.”
Mbwana, Omali’s father
About the photographer
Avanell Brock Avanell Brock served as CURE Storyteller at CURE Malawi. Using her skills in photography and writing to serve God and help people has been a long-term goal, and she's so happy to have a job doing just that right out of college! She gets to tell the world about the awesome kids that we serve in Malawi, getting their stories, surgeries, and smiles out to people who can pray and support them! Malawi is a beautiful country and Avanell loves exploring it on the weekends! She also enjoys photography, cooking, reading, and of course, playing with some pretty great kids. She loves her family back home in Rhode Island and is so glad that modern day technology allows her to call them almost every weekend from the other side of the world. Before joining CURE, Avanell studied photojournalism in Rochester, NY.
