Chriss from Malawi on 2 days ago
Chriss is enjoying the swing this morning! It's sunny but he is not bothered at all as long as there is someone pushing him on the swing. Thank you for praying for Chriss' healing! As he makes more progress, the hope of playing with his friends with healthy hands becomes more of a reality!

Calvine from Malawi on 2 days ago
Calvine checked into his physiotherapy session looking happier today than he did yesterday! He is having fun playing with the toys and with his friend Maliana. He is done elevating his hand and is now able to leave it down. Thank you for praying for him and please keep those prayers coming for both Calvine and Maliana!

Thokozani from Malawi on 2 days ago
Our boy Thokozani is so quiet today! This morning during ward rounds he was very attentive and observant to what our doctors were saying. His leg is looking good and he is continuing the needed turns on his frame. Please be praying for Thokozani to keep his trust in God and pray that he will be healed soon!

Maliana from Malawi on 2 days ago
Maliana is so energetic and happy today! She is feeling good and is not complaining of any pain in her left hand. She even tried greeting a doctor from Uganda (Short term AO Fellow) using the same hand! We are so proud of her. Thank you for your continued prayers for Maliana!

Jaycob from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Jaycob had a hard time sitting still during his follow up, and then squirmed through his physical therapy time where Chin showed him how to stretch his feet each day. But, there were no tears this time! He finally occupied himself by spotting far off lands or planets through a piece of rolled up paper, which was the perfect distraction. His family needs to stretch his ankle daily, since it’s a little stiff. It looks like as long as he has a piece of paper and his imagination, he’ll have no problem sitting through daily exercises! We’ll see him back in three months, please pray for progress with stretching at home!

Chriss from Malawi on 3 days ago
It's time for Chriss to eat! Because he loves his photo taken, Chriss is facing the camera and smiling. His wound inspection yesterday was quick and our doctors are saying he is doing fine. Chriss has been very calm today and has quietly been moving all over the ward following his buddy Thandy (CURE Storyteller) around! Please keep Chriss in your prayers as his wounds on both hands are healing.

Calvine from Malawi on 3 days ago
Our sweet boy Calvine is feeling a little grumpy today! Probably because doctors have advised him to be elevating his right hand so as to allow proper flow of blood. His surgery went smoothly yesterday, doctors released his middle finger. Calvine is feeling well today, despite having to keep his hand up in the air. He appears not to be enjoying his meal at all, but we know that good food will help his body heal! Please pray for Calvine to heal quickly and gain his appetite back!

Francis from Malawi on 3 days ago
Francis has been discharged! We will miss having him around, especially seeing him smile after such a long time. Doctors have said his wound is healing quickly and they have put a cast to support his leg. They have also left a window in the cast for them to be able to see how the wound is healing. Please pray for Francis and his mother Christina as they will be traveling back home!

Thokozani from Malawi on 3 days ago
Thokozani can't get enough of reading today! He asked for some comic books from the playroom and has been reading them this morning until lunch hour. Thokozani likes reading and is excited when he find books. He is also getting better with each passing day. Thank you for keeping him in your prayers!

Maliana from Malawi on 3 days ago
Our girl Maliana is back! She came in for a wound inspection which was done yesterday in the operating theatre. Today we found Maliana enjoying her pack of Kamba (puffy round snacks) on her bed. The doctors are saying that her wound is healing. Thank you for your prayers for her!

Tariku from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Tariku is hanging in there! He was supposed to have surgery this week, but his foot still needs more casting so the plan is for him to through more rounds of serial casting. We will see him in two weeks when he returns for a new cast. Please pray for patience with the process!

Gali from Niger on 3 days ago
Gali got his cast off and had his follow up appointment today! His wounds have healed nicely and he's been instructed to walk on his leg in order to strengthen the healing. His next appointment is set for one month from now!

Gloria from Niger on 3 days ago
Gloria has been discharged back to the guest house after her time in the ward. Unfortunately, what the doctors discovered is that the lower cut they made in her tibia during her first surgery isn't healing. Gloria's body, essentially, doesn't recognize that the two halves of the tibia are two parts of the same bone and is therefore, making no effort to join the two. It's looking like the doctors will need to put a few pins in there to force joining of the bones. This is far from the end of the world, but it isn't the news we were hoping for. Gloria has already been with us for six months and she wants to go home. It's discouraging that the first leg is taking so long and there is still the whole second leg to go. Please be praying for her!

Jonamae from the Philippines on 3 days ago
We told you yesterday that Jonamae's only remaining tears would be tears of joy. Well, we forgot that she still had a round of physical therapy to go through, where she shed a few more tears, and they were definitely not tears of joy! But, she pushed through the pain of having her leg stretched out, and later we saw her smiling in the playroom. She was discharged this afternoon, but please keep praying for her, and for other kids who have yet to experience the healing that Jonamae has gone through!

Youssoufa from Niger on Sep 20, 2017
Youssoufa stopped back in for his follow up today and he is looking amazing! He's got a little scar from the surgery, but even that is fading! Please continue praying for him as his time here with us ends. Pray that the seeds we've planted here will take a hold and blossom into faith in the coming years, both in his life and in the life of his family.

Jonamae from the Philippines on Sep 20, 2017
The long wait is over and Jonamae finally got her external fixator removed. She rolled in with a huge smile of excitement this morning, but couldn’t help but shed a tear from being nervous. Since all of that is over, the only tears that will be shed will be tears of joy from being fully healed! Because of your support, Jonamae adds to the list of CUREkids who are on their way to becoming fully healed!

Luka from Malawi on Sep 19, 2017
Luka stopped by for physiotherapy and we were glad to see him again! "I am doing much better now! I can walk to school and my legs are getting much better," Luka said sharing his joy and hope with us. Luka will continue using crutches and he will be reviewed again in the second week of November. Please continue praying for him!

Gali from Niger on Sep 19, 2017
Gali is back! He's a little bit early for his follow-up appointment. He'll be hanging out at our guest house again and reconnecting with all his friends from when he was here the first time. We hope that his reunions bring lots of smiles!

Chriss from Malawi on Sep 19, 2017
Chriss is doing well today! He went into the operating theatre for wound inspection looking super excited. His mother, Triphonia, was there to make him feel relaxed. Please pray for Chriss as his wound is healing!

Calvine from Malawi on Sep 19, 2017
Guess who is back in the hospital- Calvine! He is here for another operation. Doctors are discussing about an operation to release his mid finger on his right hand. This will be the sixth procedure to be done on Calvine's hands. Please pray for the little guy to be healed quickly!

Thokozani from Malawi on Sep 18, 2017
Thokozani's physiotherapy exercises are improving day by day! He seems to enjoy them more since they are only a little painful, so he says. This morning, doctors said he is doing well and should continue with strut turns. Please continue praying for Thokozani!

Francis from Malawi on Sep 18, 2017
Francis was outside for some fresh air today! It is summer and it's getting hot here in Malawi. His mother Christina and a few other guardians were sitting on the lawn outside the ward as well. Please continue praying for Francis' healing process!

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.
