Mecah from Zambia on 2 days ago
Mecah gets to continue her healing from home! Our sweet girl has been discharged, her grandmother Loveness tells us that they won't go back home in Luapula province which is over 700km from Lusaka, but instead they will stay in Lusaka at a relative's place up until January next year when Mecah will come back for her follow up review. Please pray for her speedy recovery!

Abubeker from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Abubeker is doing very well! He spent his day wheeling around the ward, having his frame cleaned and turned. Today he asked for a picture and he said, "Wait wait! Let me count before you start taking a picture and I want you to take ten photos of me!" Thank you all for your prayers!

Evance from Malawi on 2 days ago
"I am going home tomorrow! Yesterday, Chifundo's mom gave my mom her phone so she could call home to tell my family. I got to talk to my sister. I was so excited to tell her I was coming home. Now I have casts. I am in pain, but it is better than the frames."

Evance took his last picture for a while. He is scheduled to return to the hospital on January 14th. Please keep him in your prayers as he travels home to Zomba tomorrow morning and for his speedy recovery!

Alamanzan from Uganda on 2 days ago
Spiderman is Alamanzan’s new name given to him by the nursing staff due to him climbing all over the hospital! Wednesday night he was a climbing on his bed in the ward and fell off it. The ICU’s beds where he spent last night are like cribs which were able to keep Spiderman in. Yesterday’s operation went smoothly and Alamanzan’s recovery is going very well, he is active and playful trying his best to escape the confines of his crib. He has befriended a few of the ICU nurses who gave him an inflated glove which they have been playing catch with. Maria is feeling relieved, she is happy the operation is over and is no longer stressed. Maria would like prayer for Alamanzan, “Pray for the child to get well and maintain his milestones."

Mecah is on course with her recovery and she now able to stand! She's not able to walk currently because of the cast which is above the knee but at least the discomfort which she was earlier complaining about has thankfully stopped! Mecah needs your prayers, prayers for patience in the healing!

Evance from Malawi on 3 days ago
Evance had his frames removed today! We walked along side him from beginning to end throughout the process as his heart raced from being so nervous for surgery and the removal. He told us we could take the photo from his perspective and write his status today, since he would be tired after surgery. Dr. James told us he would later need a tendon transfer and Dr. Karolina said it would take time for the balls on the side of his feet to heal and shift as he builds padding for his new heal. Please keep Evance in your prayers while he is resting and recovering and that he isn't in too much pain when he wakes up!

Alamanzan from Uganda on 3 days ago
“I’m very worried,” said Maria. Alamanzan is currently in surgery where Dr. Peter is performing an ETV/CPC. In a few hours Alamanzan should be transferred to the ICU where he will be reunited with his mother. Immaculate from the spiritual department met with Maria today and she counseled her and tried to encourage her. “I prayed that the child would grow up well and the surgery would go well, and that they would go home with a testimony,” said Immaculate. Please join Immaculate in praying for Alamanzan that his operation will be successful and for him to have a swift recovery!

Lewis from Kenya on Dec 05, 2018
Lewis was brought to clinic by his dad because his mum was going to another hospital to have a baby. Lewis’ dad was on the phone most of the time, eagerly waiting to hear the good news once it came in. Lewis had AFOs measured today and will need to wear a new cast until he comes back to collect his AFOs. We congratulated Baba Lewis and thanked him for standing in the gap by bringing Lewis to clinic!

Francis from Kenya on Dec 05, 2018
The three of them are back again! Francis, his dad, and his sister! They spent a few hours around CURE Kenya and finally, after Francis’ cast removal and some more waiting was done, they made it into the appointment room for an orthotic fitting! By this time, Francis was probably done with pictures, but his dad and sister were still attentive subjects. We’re thankful for all the love that surrounds Francis and we’re also thankful that he’ll get to wear shoes! Praise Jesus with us for this!

"I went to the playroom today! We played with balloons. The doctors told me I am getting my frames off Thursday and I am counting down the days. Lex took me everywhere around the hospital because I will be going home soon, so I have to try everything. I am so excited to go home and I am so excited to get my frames removed!"

Abubeker was so focused listening to all your get-well messages he has received from everyone! After reading the messages our counselor, Tewodros, asked Abubeker if he had anything to say, "Thank you and I love you all!" was Abubeker's answer! Thank you all for making this little guy's day so special!

Pamela from Kenya on Dec 03, 2018
From last week until this week, Pamela is still smiling! This one is her big pre-theatre-visit smile! Pamela was almost going to have her surgery site checked. She might as well keep smiling even now because she gets to go home! She’s been discharged today, but will wait to leave until tomorrow morning, probably due to travel distance. Thank Jesus with us for her continued healing and we’ll catch our girl the beginning of next month when she comes for some rehab!

Patrick went in the operating theater for a dressing change under anesthesia, however the procedure changed! Dr. Moyo is very happy with how his leg has healed and decided there was no need to put another cast on, instead what Patrick needs is a pair of shoes! Mom Mildred couldn't express how happy she is with the son's healing, she is at a loss for words. We are happy that Patrick is finally clubfoot free and we're excited that you partnered with us through prayers and support to make this possible, thank you!

Awww! Don’t these two just look adorable? We are very excited to see Pamela like this. She is up and feeding and smiling which means she's not in as much pain as she was yesterday. Michael is doing such a great job by being here for his daughter and we thank God for him. Please don’t get weary of praying for Pamela’s healing.

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.
