Faith from Malawi on Yesterday
Avanell: How are you? Faith: Fine. Avanell: How was physical therapy? Faith: Fine. Avanell: Is there anything else you would like to say? Faith: No. Faith isn't being very chatty today, but she looks happy and we're sure, sooner or later, she will start asking for another deck of playing cards again.

Moujahidou from Niger on Yesterday
Bad news on the Mujahidou front, he was in earlier to get his mandatory blood test before surgery. We just need to make sure he's not sick with anything that would make a run of the mill surgery, like the one he needs, dangerous. His tests came back showing he had malaria which is rather common here, especially this time of year. We were able to get him the medication he needs and we'll see him again when he's better and reschedule his surgery!

Sofiati from Malawi on 2 days ago
Sofi is having her surgery today! Dr. James and Dr. Maina have been operating on her all morning! They cut out the bit of bone that was bent and set it straight with a pair of rods. They needed to take a bone graft from her pelvis which will encourage the bone to heal together. The new medication we've been telling you about is to help make sure the bone graft won't be eaten away by the overactive bone cells in her tibia! Please be praying for her as she recovers from her surgery!

Tdijani is resting in bed and is already back to his joyful and mischievous self. It's incredible how fast he bounced back after his surgery! Most kids take a few days, but not this little guy. He'll stay here overnight again tonight and we wouldn't be surprised if he got discharged tomorrow!

Viola from Uganda on 3 days ago
“My baby is getting better and better.” said Namubiru. Over the last two days, Viola has been improving which has lifted the spirits of Namubiru. “The baby was not breathing well, but now removing the oxygen seems possible,” said Namubiru. Viola continues to be on her oxygen mask and, at this time, there are no plans to remove it, but she is no longer gasping for air! Viola is also more active, moving her arms and kicking her legs. Her antibiotics seem to be working today. Another CSF tap will be done and the fluid will be tested. Namubiru played with Viola, moving their balloon in front of her face and she got excited when Viola would see the balloon. Nurse Jane is taking care of Viola today which makes Namubiru happy. Jane seems to one of Namubiru's favorite nurses. Please keep Viola in your prayers, that her breathing will continue to improve.

Rashid from Uganda on 3 days ago
“It was a perfect closure,” said Dr. Michael, who assisted Dr. Justin in closing Rashid’s back yesterday. Phina says, “Rashid will be fine on the back, but they told me his head may also need surgery”. She also said she is hoping that Rashid’s head doesn’t increase in size. Later on today, baby Rashid will be transferred to the ward. Please keep him in your prayers.

Sofiati from Malawi on 3 days ago
Sofiati was a bit glum this morning despite being in the playroom. We ended up bringing her some of your get well messages and showing her some pictures to help her cheer up. Soon she was grinning just like always! Please be praying for her as she has her big operation tomorrow!

Thank you for all your prayers and everything went splendidly! Nadia spent the night in the ward to make sure there were no delayed complications from the anesthesia and she's going back to the guest house today! Once again, Nadia and her mother spent some time talking and praying with our spiritual staff this morning before heading out!

Tdijani's surgery went amazingly! The doctors were successfully able to release the tendons and muscles they needed to. Tdijani was casted up and sent back to the ward for recovery! Please continue praying with us for safe and complication free healing as his body starts to do it's job!

Viola from Uganda on 4 days ago
Viola got a valentine's day kiss from her mother and a balloon from the nurses in the ICU. After the morning ward rounds, Joyce the assistant nurse manager handed out balloons to the families in the ICU. Everyone had a fun time trying to inflate and tie them. Viola and Namubiru received 10 get well messages, all of them expressing love and prayers for the family. Viola has improved a little. She is no longer gasping for air, but still needs oxygen. The CSF culture came back which showed there was an infection. Viola has been placed on a second antibiotic which should be effective against that type of infection. Please continue to pray for Viola, that her breathing will improve, and for the antibiotics to be effective against the infection!

This morning, Pastor Winnie had time to speak to Phina about Christ and about hope. She prayed with Phina, and Phina gave her life to Christ. “I feel okay. Am strong,” said Phina about Rashid’s surgery today. Her family back at home is aware too about Rashid’s surgery and although they can’t physically make it to CURE to be with Phina, they are praying with her and Rashid. We are thankful that not only does she have family prayer support but that she has your prayer support too!

Tdijani from Niger on Feb 13, 2018
Tdijani is terrorizing the our children's ward in the best way possible: with constant laughter and infectious smiles. We're glad this little man found his way to us and we can't wait to get started on his journey to healing! Will you pray with us that God uses this young man and his energy in unimaginable ways?

Nadia from Niger on Feb 13, 2018
Another week, another manipulation under anesthesia for our little lady. We asked her if she was afraid to go into the OR again and she just laughed at us. She's a spunky one and we love her for it! Please be praying with us that this procedure goes as smoothly as last week's did.

Viola from Uganda on Feb 13, 2018
“Viola is still sick and the issue is now her breathing. The concern is she is gasping all the time. It is a result of a defect of the heart,” said nurse Miria. "Yesterday, they took fluid from the brain and now we are waiting for the culture.” Namubiru says. Viola's condition worsened last night. This morning several staff members met with Namubiru to talk and council her. She received a few get well messages which she read in bed. Please continue to pray for Viola and Namubiru and please keep writing to them.

“The nurses and doctors are taking good care of us. Everyday, they clean Rashid’s wound and dress it”, said Phina. Dad Rashid spent the night here at CURE then returned home after lunch. He helped with the laundry this morning while Phina nursed baby Rashid. Phina says, “Yesterday, I prayed for healing during the devotions in the ward.” Pastor Winnie from our spiritual team plans to meet with Phina tomorrow to council her. Please remember them in your prayers today!

"We were told that he will be operated today or tomorrow, so we are waiting," Phina said. Today, however, Rashid came to visit. He hadn't visited since they were admitted last Saturday but got time to be here today. Please remember baby Rashid in your prayers as they prepare him for surgery.

Sofiati has made a new friend! She was laughing at us and told us to take a picture of her and her friends - we were happy to oblige!

“I have been praying to God that He may heal my child perfectly well,” said Namubiru. This morning Nurse Caren prayed for Viola and sang worship songs to her, then met with Namubiru and prayed with her. “Don’t ask why me? God has a reason and a purpose for your life and the child,” said Nurse Caren. Caren told her the medical staff will do their best, but it is God who will heal Viola. Caren gave her advise on praying, be praying for strength and understanding, for joy and to trust in the Lord. Namubiru and Viola had a routine weekend where she attended chapel which taught about clinging to God and praying to God. Viola will get a cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) tap today, during which antibiotics will be administered and the CSF will also be taken for testing. Viola has started an antibiotic and will be kept on oxygen therapy this week and will not be weaned off till the weekend. Please continue to pray for Viola and Namubiru.

One of our anesthesiologists, Dr. Fred, examined Viola this morning and suggested she start a stimulant to increase her breathing. Yesterday, they tried weaning Viola off oxygen and her saturation lowered, followed soon by her heart. At the moment, the goal is to get Viola off oxygen and then transfer her to the Uganda Heart Institute where they can treat her. Namubiru is doing well. She spent the morning talking with her friends in the ward and then went to the playroom where she built a castle out of building blocks. Please continue to pray for Viola and that her breathing will improve.

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.
