Shalom from Ethiopia on Today
For the first time today, Shalom was able to move her hand and see it straight! Both Shalom and her mom Hanna was so happy to see it moving without the burn contracture. She got another bandage on and went back home. We will see her again next week when she returns for another check-up!

Adem from Ethiopia on Today
Look how tall Adem got! He's come back for his check-up today and he is doing wonderful! He is continuing with school and enjoying it too. He has a little back pain and our physical therapist showed him a couple of exercises to do at home in order to help him with that and we will see him again in six months when he returns for another check-up!

Condoleezza Rice from Kenya on Today
Condoleezza and her dad are very fond of everyone at CURE Kenya. Today they both arrived because Condoleezza needs another surgery and they were received very warmly. We are looking forward to our time with them this week and we pray that all goes well!

Marline from Uganda on Today
Marline and Catherine had a quiet weekend. Little Marline is stable and waiting for her surgery, which hopefully will be later this week. The CURE Uganda neurosurgeons will create a path for her cerebrospinal fluid to flow more freely, and that should help her feel much better. Catherine was feeling pretty tired this morning, so please be praying for good rest for both her and Marline as they wait!

Kauthalah from Uganda on Today
Olivia and baby Kauthalah had a quiet weekend! They are all ready for surgery, and the medical team let them know that Kauthalah should be having her surgery tomorrow. Olivia has been in touch with the rest of the family, and while her older daughters are missing her, they're doing ok. School for most Ugandan children starts next week, so they're getting ready for that! Hopefully Olivia and Kauthalah will be back home in time to see her big sisters off to school.

Miracle from Uganda on Today
Miracle is heading home today! The medical team checked on her during morning rounds and because her back is healing so well, neurosurgeon Dr. Wegoye gave the official go-ahead for her to be discharged. We'll see her again in a couple weeks for a checkup appointment. Esther attended worship this morning in chapel with the CURE staff before getting ready to go, along with Aunt Rachel! Thank you for your continued prayers for this sweet little girl and her family.

Beldine from Kenya on Today
We were not able to say bye to Beldine and her mum because they left for home over the weekend. We look forward to seeing them again in a few weeks. Thank you for your prayers and support both during their stay and while they are resting at home!

Manirou from Niger on 3 days ago
Manirou's surgery was a big one which means he's at the start of a pretty rough recovery process. Our CURE Niger nurses are taking good care of him and helping him manage the pain, but it's not fun. Please be praying for strength and perseverance for this young man!

Kauthalah from Uganda on 3 days ago
Kauthalah and her mom are getting settled in at CURE Uganda! One special thing about the hospital is the friendships that moms can develop here. Today, Kauthalah met baby Ethan as their moms were both outside. Hopefully these moms can be friends and encourage each other over the weekend!

Photo of Marline
Marline from Uganda on 3 days ago
Marline and mama Catherine made the long journey all the way from South Sudan to come back to CURE Uganda. Unfortunately, Marline's cerebrospinal fluid has become blocked again, so her head started to re-increase in size. The CURE Uganda doctors and nurses are doing tests to figure out exactly what's causing this problem, and are making a plan to help Marline. We'll keep you posted! Thank you for praying for Marline, Catherine and their family.
Photo of Mibatou
Mibatou from Niger on 3 days ago
As predicted, Mibatou had her bandages changed in order to keep her infection free! Since her home is far away from CURE Niger, she's actually hanging out here in our guest house as she get's her regular bandage changes. While here, she likes to meet new people who come visit the hospital and we got this shot of her teaching a visitor the unofficial CURE Niger handshake! Please pray for her as she works towards complete healing.

Ismael from Niger on 3 days ago
Ismael has had his surgery! He was a bit upset because he didn't want another cast after the surgery, but our anesthesiologist Dr. Diane and the nurses convinced him that everything would be OK. The surgeons straightened his leg and put a metal pin into his lower right leg to strengthen the bones. Because the pin gives support, Ismael doesn't actually need a cast and only has bandages on his leg! Please pray for him as he starts the healing process.

Lavine from Kenya on 3 days ago
Lavine’s mum was out visiting another mama and her child who had just been discharged when we got to Lavine’s bed this morning. Lavine is hoping they can also go home so she can see all her little friends. Thank you for your prayers and support throughout their stay here!

Beldine from Kenya on 3 days ago
“I am okay. I just felt a lot of pain at night and wasn’t able to sleep well.” Beldine told us when we asked how she was doing. Beldine was in some pain through the night despite being given pain medication. Her pins were removed in the OR and now she has to wear this new cast for six weeks before we can take it off and start her physical therapy. She was a bit drowsy this morning so we encouraged her to sleep and rest after we prayed for her.

Esther from Uganda on 3 days ago
Esther is having a pretty quiet day today, but yesterday she had a special surprise - her big brother came to visit! He is 13 years old and since Ugandan schoolchildren are on their school holidays, he was able to take the bus to come and see her. What a very sweet big brother! He and Josephine and Esther enjoyed spending time together, and he even attended afternoon worship on the ward with them. Such a special encouragement. Esther is scheduled for surgery on Monday, so has just a couple more days to wait!

Christine from Uganda on 3 days ago
Christine was discharged this morning and she and Judith are heading home! We'll see them again in a few weeks at a mobile clinic near their home. They have a long journey ahead of them, so please be praying for safe travels and continued healing for baby Christine!

Miracle from Uganda on 3 days ago
Miracle's dad came to check on her and mama Esther today! Because space at the hospital is limited, we only have room for one caregiver, but we welcome other family members to come visit. Miracle is doing really well and she and Esther will move from the ICU back to the main ward today. She has such a loving and supportive family!

Tewodros from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Tewodros is doing wonderful and enjoying his stay in the ward! He usually spends his days playing with his friends and doing different crafts. Other than that, he is being diligent in practicing his walking around the ward with the help of his walking frame!

Gloria from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Gloria is doing well and continuing her recovery in the ward! While she's here, she is adding another language to her repertoire, Ethiopia's national language Amharic! So far she's got the greetings down! Keep on praying for her!

Lefiker from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
We found Lefiker wheeling around the the ward and enjoying her day. As usual, she was a little shy in front of the camera. The other day she had a trip to the operation room for a frame adjustment and her foot is showing progress. Keep on praying for her!

Rahma from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
We found Rahma in bed playing! She is doing great and continuing her healing. She is also doing a wonderful job with her physical exercises! Keep on praying for this sweet child for a speedy recovery!

Eshete from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
"Look, I'm learning how to use the computer mouse" says Eshete wiggling the mouse. He was in the playroom with the other children playing and asking Temesgen, one of our counselors, about the computer mouse. Eshete is doing wonderful and expanding his knowledge in the ward!

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
