Nicole from the PhilippinesToday

Nicole’s tears started as soon as she realized where she was, and they escalated when she heard the cast removal saw being used on other patients. Cyra tried to distract her with bubbles, and it seemed to work for a while. After all the discomfort our poor Nicole has experienced while wearing her casts, the good news is she’s done. She will start doing some stretches that will loosen her legs and give her more flexibility. We’ll keep you up to date on how it goes!

Advence appears to be growing bigger in front of our eyes! Nothing new medically for Advence and Maureen because they are still waiting for stitch removal. We were told that Maureen hadn't been well the past few days, but she is doing fine now.

Habiru from UgandaYesterday

Habiru was brought back to CURE with severe diarrhea and fevers. He was so dehydrated that he was rushed to the ward and put on IV fluids. Please pray healing for Habiru, peace for his father Juma, and the doctors and nurses here as we work to get him stabilized.

Advence from ZambiaYesterday

For the first time since they got to CURE, Advence let someone else other than his mom carry him around! Advence was hanging out with our clinical clerk, Mukisha, and he did not cry or look for mommy! It is a positive sign that he is getting comfortable around us! The doctor wanted to discharge them for awhile until his wound heals, but since they have no family in Lusaka, they get to stay here for the time being. The doctor is waiting for his wound to heal so they can remove the stitches! Please keep praying for healing!

Sirgut from EthiopiaYesterday

As usual, Sirguit had a beautiful smile for us! She got her shoe support and was supposed to go home tomorrow, unfortunately, the doctors decided to keep her for a couple more days, but she will be discharged soon!

Haimanot from EthiopiaYesterday

Haimanot is doing great! She came in for a review and everything looks good! Our doctors told her to come back in six months for another follow-up. She is getting a new supporting shoe(brace) in two weeks because her foot has gotten too big for the one she already has. The physiotherapist put on a cast until she comes back and gets her brace. Please keep her in your prayers!

Ausi from Uganda2 days ago

Ausi’s doctor told us that they plan to take him for surgery tomorrow but will have one last review this evening before any conclusion is made. Annette has noticed some improvement in the way Ausi is breathing and she is happy about that. Please continue to pray for them.

Rena came in today for her follow-up and she is doing great! Her left leg is all straight and it looks good! The doctors say her x-ray shows good alignment and everything looks good. We will see her in a year for another follow-up.

Elias from Kenya2 days ago

Before we started the clinic today, we were led in a small devotion, reminding our patients and staff of God’s promise. Our sweet Elias was there to join us with his mother and aunt. We were able to show his family the photos that we have, and they loved it, scrolling back and forth again and again. When Elias’s mom saw the collage of his surgery, she stopped. “Is that the procedure? Whoa. It is a difficult work they do,” she said almost in shock. We delivered all his get well messages and sent them on their way with good news in hand. Elias is healing very well! He was re-fitted for another ankle-foot orthosis brace and we won’t need to see him again until September. Thank you for all your support so far!http://youtu.be/Q3_mpxxYcNI

Eda from Malawi2 days ago

Eda came in for her checkup today! It all looks good and she will be coming back in a month for another review! We're so happy she's doing well enough to stay home! She will have the frame in for quite a while, even after the bone grows back it will take some time to strengthen enough to take the frame off. Please be praying for her as she continues her journey of healing!

Gloria from Malawi2 days ago

Gloria is in for her weekly strut changes! She's doing well and seems to be mastering her crutches! She's currently in physio doing some exercises; please be praying for her as it's really painful for her to do the workouts she needs to in order to keep her joints flexible!

Sirgut from Ethiopia2 days ago

Look at her! Even if she in pain sometimes, she always has a beautiful smile on her face to every one that passes by. It is almost time for Sirgut to go home, she is just waiting for her shoe support to be ready and then she will be discharged. We will miss her!

Ausi from Uganda3 days ago

Ausi is still taking his antibiotics, and his infection hasn’t cleared just yet. Annette called home and was informed that some of Ausi’s siblings have malaria, but Annette said that she is fine, she is hanging in there. Please keep praying for baby Ausi and his siblings.

Advence from Zambia3 days ago

Advence is such a fighter! He is still doing great after his operation. The bandage around his head was removed to reveal the stitches he got from the craniotomy. Those scars will one day serve as a testimony for all this little boy has been through! He has still not yet been discharged, but this time around, Maureen is much more relaxed and patient because Advence has gone to the operating room. Thank you for keeping him in your prayers!

Advence from ZambiaFeb 05, 2016

Advence is still doing well and healing. He will soon get the stitches in his head removed from his craniotomy surgery. For now, he is feeling much more friendly and he spends a lot of time moving around the ward on his mom's back. There is also a huge improvement in his left eye which is looking smaller! We thank God for this miracle!

Ausi from UgandaFeb 05, 2016

Ausi was taken to Mbale Regional Referral Hospital today to have a pediatrician examine him because of his cough and congested chest. The doctor there placed him on three days of medication for treatment. Hopefully, after the three day regiment, his chest will have cleared and he will be able to undergo surgery. Please pray that this will happen so that Ausi will be able to get the surgery he needs!

Gideon from ZambiaFeb 05, 2016

Gideon and his mom Mirriam stopped by to celebrate Gideon's birthday with everyone in the children's ward today! There were very few dry eyes in the room and we were so honored that we got to spend this very special day with Miriam and and Gideon! There was loads of cake too!

Peace from ZambiaFeb 04, 2016

Peace is in a very chatty mood! She came for a cast change and she is ready to go home and heal now. She is impressed with how her leg looks in her cast! Peace is no longer quiet and she has been able to lift her leg all on her own! Please keep praying for her!

Chilizani from ZambiaFeb 04, 2016

Chilizani was complaining that his leg was hurting a lot today. He was given some medication to ease his present pain and then some extra which he can carry with him when he goes back home tomorrow. He is not in a very happy mood today because he is tired of being in the hospital, especially since he's the only boy in a big group of girls! Please keep praying for him!

Advence from ZambiaFeb 04, 2016

Advence and Maureen took some time this afternoon to have a long and deserved nap. After yesterday's surgery, Advence is doing well and not crying or irritated. His mother was able to move around with him on her back just a day after his craniotomy! It is amazing that he is recovering so well and Maureen looks happy that her son is doing well!

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.
