Nafiou from Niger on Today
Nafiou now feels very comfortable in our office. So comfortable that he'll beat us in and we'll find him in our chair just coloring away!

Ahmad went ahead and got himself a little malaria, but no worries! With a quick test, we got him the medication he needs and he'll be back to 100% in no time!

Nadia from Niger on Today
Turns out that Nadia LOVES hospital volleyball where we use lined up walkers instead of a net and balloons instead of balls. Also, all the kids have to be sitting on the ground to play!

Patsani from Malawi on Today
Patsani is in good spirits today! We talked to her a little and she says she's been able to go to school and play with all her friends despite the frame! We're so happy for her - but we still bet she's ready to have it off on Thursday!

Yahaya from Malawi on Today
Yahaya had a lovely time at tea with his friend Eluby and one of the moms! He had his neck brace taken off today for a wound inspection and the skin graft is looking lovely! At the moment, he has the brace off because it needs to be cleaned so he can't move around while they're doing that, but we're sure he'll be back to watching tv and playing cards as soon as they're done!

Bertha from Malawi on Today
Thandy talked to Bertha today and she says that the wound dressing wasn't as painful today and that it's healing! We're so happy for her! It's chilly out today here in Malawi - chilly means 65F - but she's been keeping warm! Her wound is still mucky but once it's a little more healed, she can go home and have her wound dressings at a hospital near her house!

Mazuba from Zambia on Today
Sometimes it's hard to take a picture of Mazuba because on days like today, he is very shy! The good news is that we will know tomorrow if he is staying longer or going home because he went for his x-ray today and the doctors will look at it and tell Godfrey the results soon. We pray for the best!

Nathenael from Ethiopia on Today
The cast is off and everything looks great! He can now run around and play like a healthy kid and for that, we are rejoicing! After seeing Dr. Rick, Nathenael was outside enjoying his potato chips in the sunshine. We will see him in July for another checkup!

Calvine from Malawi on Today
Calvine came in for a checkup today and was passed out waiting for a wound inspection on granny's lap! Jacinta is worried because one of his fingers is a bit bent and isn't straightening out - the doctors prescribed for him to have physiotherapy every other day to help it, and he'll be seen next month on the 9th!

Dave from the Philippines on Today
Sweet Dave had a quick tendon lengthening this morning, so quick in fact that we missed it! But, we got to see him sleeping soundly with Cresleen by his side, as always! We heard reports later in the day that he was a little grumpy, but he’s doing awesome overall, and by tomorrow he’ll probably be in the mood to play again!

Daniel was having a great time chatting with his friend, Gashaw, while resting in bed this afternoon! We love seeing friendships in the ward form!

Yahaya from Malawi on Yesterday
Yahaya is doing well today, and despite the fact he's in a neck brace - he's been all over the hospital, enjoying tea, tv, and the bike in physiotherapy! He's in high spirits and will be having a wound inspection later this week!

Thom from Malawi on Yesterday
We finally got a chance to deliver Thom's messages today - he was up to 25! Wooo! He's really excited to finally be going back to school soon, since he hasn't been in a long time! He doesn't have any pain when walking so he got the green light to be able to go to school now! He says 'thanks' for everyone who's been praying for and encouraging him! The doctors looked at his X-ray and confirmed for Diane that he can stretch his leg fine and push it, so they're continuing with physiotherapy and we'll see him again on May 2nd!

Mazuba from Zambia on Yesterday
Mazuba's wound dressing change on Friday was very successful. It revealed that most of his wounds had dried up and he has zero infection now which means the skin graft worked superbly. Before he is discharged, he has to have an x-ray taken and have a wound dressing again on Tuesday to asses whether or not he is ready to go home. All this is moving in a positive direction and both he and Godfrey are really happy about this news! Praise God!

Bertha from Malawi on Yesterday
Bertha is doing well today - she got out of the septic bay with Grace and Aisha! The three musketeers of septic bay were sitting and enjoying some tv (you can see Aisha chilling on the stretcher in the mirror).

Wilson from Malawi on Yesterday
Wilson got surprised discharged over the weekend and we didn't get a chance to snap a photo before he left! He'll have the k-wire holding his finger straight taken out at a local hospital in a few days and then he'll be seen by our doctors in the Ntcheu outreach clinic near his home. Please be praying his finger continues to heal well!

Patsani from Malawi on Yesterday
We saw Patsani waiting in line to see the doctor during a busy clinic this morning, and just found out that she's been readmitted to finally have her frame off on Thursday! Please be praying for her as she waits to go in for surgery!

Dave from the Philippines on Yesterday
I think we have a mama's boy in the house! Dave is sweet and welcoming even though he just started talking. So far, we've only heard him say one word – "No!" which is very typical for a toddler! We're glad that he's close to his Mama Cresleen. He'll need to store up lots of hugs for tomorrow's surgery!

Abdu was being silly and didn't want to leave his new bud Mikyas' bedside this morning!

Dr. Mesfin was having a laugh with Daniel during rounds this morning as he complimented his new hair cut!

Nelson from the Philippines on Apr 21, 2017
It took some coaxing, but we got to see Nelson’s smile in physical therapy. His leg has developed a slight infection, but now that his cast and wrap are off, he should have an easier time healing. He took some steps, but was nervous, those first steps without support are always a little scary! But, everything stayed in one piece, so hopefully he’ll be encouraged to keep pushing himself. He’ll be back regularly for physical therapy for a while, so we’ll be able to keep track of how he’s doing.

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
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.
