Elinat from Malawi on Today
"I feel so much better today and my foot is really turning to the right position! Even though I feel pain, it's bearable." Elinat continues to be happy and is living freely with joy everyday here at CURE. Thank you for the time and resources you spend to send her get-well messages and to pray for her! God bless you all.

Shamim from Malawi on Today
Shamim is back as part of a research project on the outcome of frames on clubfoot, and Dr. Karolina saw her today. Unfortunately, her clubfoot is reoccurring and her feet are curved inwards again, a common issue when the patients don't come back for follow-ups or keep wearing their corrective orthotics to keep the feet in place. We talked to her autie, who brought her here. "I feel bad to see the great job that CURE started in Shamim being ruined. I feel so much pain because all her other relatives do not want to help her...I am the only one who is standing between." Shamim's auntie wants to bring her back for another set of frames, the treatment Dr. Karolina suggested, but she's not Shamim's legal guardian and it's her other relatives (we're not sure if it's her parents or someone else) who don't want to spend the time and travel costs necessary for more treatment. Please, be praying for Shamim and her auntie as she travels back home to intercede for Shamim with her relatives. Pray for open hearts and minds, and that they will be convinced that Shamim is precious to us and to God and that with proper care, she can walk normally.

Mary's doing awesome! She'll be having her surgery next Tuesday, please be praying that it goes smoothly! She's been giggling and scuttling around the ward a lot today - and now is passed out asleep! https://youtu.be/OTR39A8kAkk

Faith from Malawi on Yesterday
"If you won't let me use the camera, I won't be your friend anymore."

Unfortunately after a long and great friendship, Faith has disowned me, Avanell, as a friend. I would be sad, except that I know she'll forget that we're not friends within the next 30 minutes and start talking to me again!

Tresford from Zambia on Yesterday
Tresford has mainly spent the day sleeping. He went to theater to get a Manipulation Under Anesthesia (MUA) done. He had many tears after he came back from surgery, but now he's been drifting in and out of sleep and is crying much less. Please be praying that his pain eases up and that he can have a restful night and weekend.

Faith from Malawi on 2 days ago
Faith made up a song about me yesterday evening - which she didn't want me to record, I think? I'm getting mixed messages... I'm either a bad girl, a good girl, or a winner. As you can tell, despite her amazing English, she also still needs to work on her pronouns! Dr. Christy got on her case the other day for not doing her homework two days in a row, so now she's in trouble! https://youtu.be/VmGQJviYTaI

Mary from Malawi on 2 days ago
Our BFF Mary is back to 100% today it seems - giggling, drinking tea, yelling "ndjumbule" ("take a photo of me!") at us and in general scooting around the ward! She wanted pictures and we didn't have our DSLR handy, but we just had to show you how cute she was being in this video we took on our phone! https://youtu.be/XzzXibn8yC0

Mary from Malawi on 2 days ago
Mary had her tenetomy yesterday and is a still bit cranky today, but is otherwise recovering well! Her extremely minor operation, which is usually done under local anesthesia in the ward, went well! Clinical Officer Mak explains a bit in the video of what they did and not being able to get it all the way corrected. When we talked to Dr. Kyle, he says that means that they'll need to do another, more invasive operation next week. Please pray for her! https://youtu.be/3J6G1iKzim4

Elinat from Malawi on 3 days ago
Elinat's hanging out with her new best friend Esther today! We asked Elinat and her mom Liviness how they're doing. Elinat has been really well and she is recovering rapidly. Please be praying for Liviness and Elinat, for God's provision for their family after they leave the hospital. Liviness says that she and Elinat feel so loved and cared for here, like they're at home with their family, and she is so thankful.

Patsani from Malawi on 3 days ago
Patsani is recovering well today. She was up and smiling this morning and can walk and everything! She'll be going home later this afternoon, please be praying for safe travels for her and her mom! We'll see her again on October 25th at her local clinic.

Faith was trying to hide from the camera, but we got her in the split second she peeked out from under the physiotherapy pillow! She's already come into our office a couple of times today - she's really interested in the surgery photos, which makes sense since she wants to be a doctor! We showed her the photo of her own operation, as well as her friend Elinat's, yesterday. Today we were working on a video update about Mary's tenetomy and she came in to watch it. Don't worry, we didn't show her anything with a lot of blood, tenetomy's are fairly boring!

Ibra from Uganda on 3 days ago
“They told me we are discharged home, I feel good,” said Aisha. She has noticed positive changes in her son, he is less irritable, he now feeds well and sleeps longer. In a week, Ibra will get his stitches removed and in a month we will see them when they return to the hospital. Prior to leaving, Aisha and Ibra received several get well messages. During their time at CURE, messages like those have been a big encouragement. Thank you for your prayers and support during their stay at CURE, please continue to pray for Ibra’s recovery!

Tresford from Zambia on 4 days ago
Tresford has been waiting all day to go to the playroom. Here, he sits on the floor, anxiously waiting a few minutes before the playroom is open. Waiting is hard! Also, we think Tresford is just secretly showing off his ability to do the splits.

Faith from Malawi on Aug 15, 2017
Faith is feeling a lot better today! Not only is she over being sick, but she had a ton of visitors today! Her mom and little brother Samuel visited, and her friend Lufina came for a checkup in clinic and was hanging around the ward with her. She has been so blessed by the encouragement of her friends here and by all of you!

Patsani from Malawi on Aug 15, 2017
Patsani had her operation this afternoon! Unfortunately we missed it, but we talked to the doctor and it went really well. It was a minor operation, putting an 8-plate into one side of the growth plate in her knee so that it grows straight rather than bending out again, keeping her blounts from reoccurring. We're thankful for your prayers and support for Patsani and playing an important part in her healing journey!

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.
