Chala from Ethiopia on Today
Today we found Chala and his mother Elfenesh chatting with one of our counselors Tewodros. "School life is not that easy for Chala. The teachers are not supportive and some kids make fun of him while others point their fingers at him" Chala's mother Elefnesh explained. Chala is continuing his healing and slowly finding the friends and support he has been lacking at school while he is here at CURE Ethiopia! enjoying his stay in the ward!

David from Malawi on Today
Today was the first time David walked into the playroom and there he was learning how to build with blocks! David is an active boy who loves to climb on anything he finds. This week, hopefully, David will go and have his surgery to correct his legs! Please keep David in your prayers.

Victoria from Malawi on Today
Victoria has a cold and, because of this, her operation had to be postponed. Once it clears up, she will be back on the surgery list! Colds are just little things, but they can cause serious trouble once a child is put to sleep for their surgery. As always, the safety of the children is our first priority! Victoria isn't too sad as it means more time in the playroom. As we wait for her cold to go away, please remember this girl in your prayers!

Bonn Ervin from the Philippines on Today
Today is finally the day Bonn Ervin has waited for — his surgery day! Since Bonn Ervin broke his olecranon (the pointy tip of the elbow), the medical team had to perform a procedure called tension band wiring. This was done by inserting surgical pins and securing the bone fragments together with wires. The wires were then fastened securely so the bones can fuse together, giving stability to his elbow. Thanks to your prayers, Bonn Ervin is now out of the operating room and his surgery was a success!

Lucia from Uganda on Yesterday
Baby Lucia was being checked by our nurse Ruth who also happens to speak Kilara's local language. Kilara was so happy to meet someone else who understands her and quickly opened up to Ruth about her worry that Lucia isn't as active and not breastfeeding properly. Samples were taken for testing and Ruth advised her to express breast milk while they find out the problem. "Hopefully it isn't an infection" Ruth told us. Please continue praying for Lucia's full recovery.

Not long after, her friend Mada was right behind her! We let the two of them watch movies since it is Friday and it is kind of an easy go easy day.

The kids in the ward have turned into reading mode! This will help them to understand and know the Bible better. This morning, we went to visit Alice in her bed as she is recovering from her operation and there she was reading her Children Bible in her local language called Chichewa. Alice has a back slab on her leg to help support her foot that has been operated on. Please keep Alice in your prayers.

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.
