Blesario never runs out of high fives, nor out of radiant smiles!

Ella can’t contain her excitement when she finds out that Jhon is making her a gourmet meal, complete with “‘trawberry ice ‘tream”!

Joanna looks to Grandma Malou for encouragement in physical therapy, since she always seems to know just what to say!

Joanna was a little drowsy after surgery, but she was thrilled to see mom May as she woke up.

Screenings in the middle of a shopping mall? Why not! Dr. Ruggles and Dr. Jun screen potential patients at a local event in celebration of National Disability Prevention and Rehabilitation Week.

We met JhonRey during mobile clinic and he couldn’t believe how straight his foot had become since his time at the hospital. One more round of casting and he’s almost done!

Ian not only got a manly handshake during his visit, but he also took home some wise advice from Dr. Jun to stay in school and be a testament of God’s healing to his friends.

Stuffed animal “Boots,” along with monkey sounds in the background distracted Gilbert from his first casting process.

Showing not much effort at all, Joanna flashes a smile for CUREkids Coordinator Marlene, so we can pray for her healing!

Because it’s boring to sit on the bed the whole time.

Light up the world with your smile.

We must say, Olivia spent so much time with Ryan and they had so much fun together. See Ryan trying to wear Olivia’s glasses. So, so cute!!

Youmali came to us with clubfeet about eight months ago, and we are now happy to announce mission accomplished! It’s been a long, but incredible journey with this young man!

Blue eyes are very rare for Nigerien children!

The healing process isn’t all smiles and fun. Unfortunately, there’s a good amount of discomfort and crying that comes with it.

Gambo rests after his burn contracture surgery.
