Thank you for backing up Abdoul Salam's surgery with your prayers! Abdoul Salam has recovered so well from his surgery that the doctor decided to allow him to spend the weekend with family! We will meet Abdoul Salam again next week when he comes for a bandage change!

Eliyab came back for another check-up today and he is doing very well! All the cast is gone and he can now practice walking. We will see the progress he will have made when he returns for another check-up!

Desalgne from Ethiopia on Oct 21, 2020
Desalegn is doing wonderful! The wound is all gone and his foot healed completely. Since his bone healed perfectly, he doesn't need to see an orthopedic doctor. But he will come back in a few weeks to see our plastic surgeon and check if he needs some more treatment!

Dagnachew from Ethiopia on Oct 21, 2020
Dagnachew came back for another check-up today and he is doing wonderful! He is walking but he still needs support to strengthen his foot. This device is called an AFO(Ankle Foot Orthosis) which will help him walk better. We will see his progress in a month when he returns for another check-up!

Mgwayisi from Malawi on Oct 20, 2020
Mgwayisi's mother has been helping the nurses clean the pin sites, making sure that the metal frame is free from infection. This week, Mgwayisi will be going home and will most likely come back for a follow-up after two to three months. Please keep her in your prayers as this girl is in her final stage of treatment.

Mohamed from Niger on Oct 19, 2020
It's been almost a week since we have met Mohamed and this morning, we are glad to have come across him at the bandage change area waiting for his turn. He is now used to our camera and as soon as he saw us, he immediately gave us a smile ready to have his photo taken!

Laurent from Malawi on Oct 19, 2020
"They said I am going home. I do not want to go," said Laurent. This boy has made so many friends and he finds it really hard to leave. We definitely agree with him to stay, but it will be a good idea as well if he can go home for a few weeks and come back! We will always miss Laurent and his mother. Our doctors said that Laurent's wound is getting so much better. It is for the same reason that the two can go home for a bit. Thank you so much for your prayers, kindness, and support that you have shared with Laurent.

Loveness from Zambia on Oct 16, 2020
It is always exciting and heart warming to witness how a child's surgical intervention impacted their own lives as well as their family and community. We visited Loveness home and travelled over 1000 km from Lusaka. Her house was near our mobile clinic where we went to bring healing to other kids in need. Loveness was born with clubfoot on the left leg and a short right leg. We did surgery to correct the clubfoot on the left leg and provided a prosthetic leg on the right. This intervention has allowed this beautiful girl to live a normal life just like other kids in the community. Her healing has brought a sense of relief to the family and we thank you for partnering with us in changing Loveness' life!

Sinide from Ethiopia on Oct 16, 2020
Sinide is doing great and she is recovering well from her surgery! Since everything is well, it is time for her to head back home. But before leaving, she got a CURE care kit from one of our counselor Temesgen. We will see her again in a couple of weeks when she returns for her check-up!

Mgwayisi from Malawi on Oct 16, 2020
Our girl Mgwayisi is doing alright and happy! When we visited her by her bedside, we did not find her. She has been outside getting some sun. "Can we go to the playroom again?" that was the first thing she asked us! Well, we love to see Mgwayisi as well as other kids happy and do what they love! So we spent a lot of time in the playroom! The nurse told us that Mgwayisi will be here up to this week so that the doctors and nurses observe her operated site which is healing up so well!

Jafali from Malawi on Oct 16, 2020
Jafali goes home today! Jafali and his sister are heading home today and our CURE Malawi doctors will see him again in a few weeks. Jafali's leg will slowly get corrected by the metal plates that were placed in his knee. Please continue to pray for smooth healing!

Laurent from Malawi on Oct 16, 2020
Laurent has been an incredibly sweet boy on this sunny day! He has been making friends with anyone he sees. He calls everyone "iwe" which means "you". Everyone has been giving this boy their attention and Laurent has made friends with almost everyone who comes across his way––the janitors, nurses, doctors, and his friends in the ward! Our CURE Malawi doctors will see this boy on Monday to see how his wound is healing up!

Boyd from Zambia on Oct 15, 2020
Boyd lives within Lusaka and because of that, he has been discharged and is going home! However, he will come back next week for a doctor's visit and a dressing change. Keep praying for Boyd as he continues to heal a home!

Nejat from Ethiopia on Oct 15, 2020
Look at Nejat's progress! All the burn contracture that had been pulling her skin is gone and the wound from the operation is healing well too! She is doing great! Today, she had a dressing change, where Dr. Tesfaye cleaned her wound and removed the old bandage and replaced it with a new one. We will see her again when she returns for another check-up!

Sinide from Ethiopia on Oct 15, 2020
Sinide's surgery went well! Dr. Msfin and Dr. Bekalu did a wonderful job straightening the upper part of the left leg and wrapped it with a long cast which covers the hole leg. Sinide is doing well and is resting back in the ward! Please keep praying for her!

Nanga from Zambia on Oct 15, 2020
Last time when Nanga visited us, she was told that there is no need to visit us again for she was healed! We visited her at her home last week and we were warmly welcomed by her family and neighbors. Nanga's healing has totally transformed not only her life but the life of the entire family. She is now independent no longer depends on people to move around. Her mother told us that Nanga freely walks to school and church. She is able to do some of the house chores and this makes her happy. Thank you for partnering with us to bring healing and hope to Nanga and her family!

Darren from the Philippines on Oct 15, 2020
It’s been half a year ago since we last saw Darren and it was great seeing him in clinic today! We learned that he’s been busy doing modular distance learning with Mommy Gwen as his teacher. Also, he is now back to playing with no complaints, which is a pretty good news! He is advised to focus on his studies first and will visit us again next year to have the metal implant on his leg removed!

Boyd from Zambia on Oct 14, 2020
We are happy the treatment hasn't caused so much discomfort to Boyd! In the OR, they placed a plate on his right leg which will be holding the affected bone as it heals over a period of time. Pray that Boyd's healing goes well as planned!

Yididiya from Ethiopia on Oct 14, 2020
As usual, Yididiya came back with her father Megistu for another check-up! She is doing wonderfully, and the cast she had on for the past six weeks has been removed. Now, she is free to walk! The other good news is the discrepancy between her legs is very little at the moment, and she doesn't need any support. She has another check-up in three months, and we will see her again!

Mohamed from Niger on Oct 14, 2020
Mohamed had a very busy weekend, as he spent a lot of his time playing with his friends at home. This morning, Mohamed is back at our hospital to have a bandage change, and we are glad to have learned from the nurse that Mohamed's wounds are healing well.

Manirou from Niger on Oct 14, 2020
Our long term guesthouse patient and friend, Manirou, is recovering so well from his surgery that our doctors have decided to discharge him back to his hometown to continue healing. He is very happy to receive his CURE care kit from the spiritual team. With a big smile, Manirou sends his goodbye and wants to thank all of you who have been very supportive through prayers and encouraging words. We will see Manirou again in a month and a half when he comes for a follow-up.

Mgwayisi from Malawi on Oct 14, 2020
Good morning from Mgwayisi! This morning Mgwayisi is doing great! She spends much of her time in bed resting. She asked us if it would be possible to do some school work and crafts this afternoon. So, we promised to hang out with her in the playroom and have fun! She is healing up well, and she is not feeling much pain at the moment. Please continue to pray for her!

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.
