Elvis and Shavin share their smiles and giggles with us.

Dr. Flavia has come to CURE for a short time to help us out, which includes helping Dr. Mailu perform surgeries, including Angel’s.

Walking on crutches is no joke. This little lady struggled at first, but ended up going far!

Francis just had surgery, but still seems to enjoy looking at the photo Zione took of him!

Blessings loves hearing get-well messages from all his supporters!

Dr. Christy operates on Doreen and puts on her second frame for bilateral bow leg! Please be praying for Doreen as having two frames at once is quite a feat!

CURE Niger

Souraya’s known for her giant smile around the hospital, but we also love her more subdued and gentle moods.

Abdul showed up at CURE Niger with a severe drop foot that caused him to walk with a harsh limp and be on the receiving end of many cruel taunts. Now, after his surgery, his foot rests flat and he’s well on his way to walking proudly!

CURE Philippines

Emmanuel and Nurse Jhun discussed important things such as how Emmanuel’s clubfoot is healed, and also the best way to wear a man bun!

We’re so excited that Mariel only needs one more casting in her Ponseti treatment to correct her clubfeet! She didn’t exactly share our excitement.

Good things, like bubbles, are meant to be shared!

Bryll has always loved adventures, and he will ease back into that passion now that his broken leg is fixed!

CURE Zambia

Doctor Moyo and his support staff get ready to do a surgery.

Luka and Edgar are the ever smiling, ever hard-working porters.

Esaki’s dance: It is not usual to see Esaki in shoes, but then again, Esaki’s feet weren’t always straight. So, when they became straight, he danced because he could wear shoes!

CURE Dominican Republic

It doesn’t matter how hard: part of our job is also the delivery
of love and patent care.

Jayson loves CURE. He makes himself right at home when he is here!

CURE Ethiopia

“Look at me, I just love pink so much!” Lyela also loves her pink sunglasses!

These two love goofing around! Gadissa and Samuel met a few of days ago, and they are already best friends!
