Loveness from Zambia on Yesterday
Loveness and some of the older girls in the ward got a fun treat when two grade school girls doing community service decided to stop by CURE Zambia to spend time with the girls and play games with them. It was nice to see all the girls light up as they played games together. Loveness sure felt loved! We are thankful for people like you and others that take time to support, pray and love on the kids in our hospital. It means the world to our kids! Thank you for coming alongside us. Please continue to pray for Loveness as she awaits surgery, which has been rescheduled to sometime next week.

Margret from Malawi on Yesterday
"Today's a good day for her. She's even demanding to do more!" Shadreck told us as Margret did her physiotherapy today. She was grimacing a bit, and we asked if she was in pain and he said no. She's actually been struggling with pain the past few days but today is a lot better. We're so proud of her for pushing herself today while she's feeling alright, so that her legs can heal quicker.

Jennifer from Kenya on Yesterday
“She wants you to take her photo,” Jackline told us of Jennifer. Maybe now that Jennifer is back, she feels better and actually wants her photo taken more than before! Jennifer has a special cast on, so she needs to have it removed and replaced in theatre and also have an x-ray taken. Tomorrow is Heroes’ Day in Kenya. Please pray that CURE can be a hero for Jennifer and give her good news regarding her healing! Thank you for the part you play in that through your prayers and support!

Margaret from Malawi on Yesterday
Margaret's operation went well yesterday, and she's already smiling in the ward. Because she has brittle bones, she'll need many surgeries to keep her bones straight until she reaches maturity. This time, Dr. Daniel and Dr. Lubega worked on her left leg, which needed to be cut since the bones were bending. Then metal rush rods were put through to hold the bones straight and keep them strong. Please pray for her as she recovers!

Nivan from Kenya on 2 days ago
Nivan and Brenda spent a good part of their day with us at CURE today, but what’s great is that they got to go home, too! The last time Nivan came for a checkup at CURE, he had to be readmitted to CURE for more wound care. This time, he came and left on the same day. His wound by his knee is looking great, and he had his pins removed today. One of the most traumatic parts of his day was getting his morphine shot before he got his wounds cleaned and pins removed. Our guy has got some feistiness in him, and he was not okay with getting a shot. It took probably at least five minutes of flailures and protests from Nivan and about fifteen seconds to actually give him his shot. He was better after this and played phone games while the nurses worked. Brenda told us, “God has answered my prayer! I prayed that it would be good.” Please praise God with us and Brenda that it is good! We’ll catch up again with these two next Wednesday.

Yohane from Malawi on 2 days ago
Yohane's operation yesterday went well and now he's been passed out asleep most of this hot, muggy day in Malawi. It's bad enough when you feel 100% in this weather and you just want to sit in the shade. When it's this hot, however, and you just had a surgery - well, we don't blame him for napping all day! Please pray that he heals quickly and is back to his happy self!

Margaret from Malawi on 2 days ago
Lovely Margaret is going in for her operation today. She's already had so many that she doesn't look at all fazed about having another one! Please be praying for her mom Ester as she waits for Margaret to come out of surgery yet again, and that her operation will go well.

Dersolegn from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Dersolegn was all smiles at follow-up clinic today. His surgical wounds are healing well and the x-ray today showed good healing. He was instructed to continue to bear as much weight as possible using his crutches and we will see him back in three months time!

Takele from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
It was a pleasure to see Takele at his follow-up appointment today. He was re-casted and molded for a AFO that he'll get to try on in six weeks time at his next appointment with us! We think he's pretty happy with his progress!

Mahadi from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Mahadi came in for a follow-up today and had a wound on his right foot. Dr. Mesfin prescribed him antibiotics and then he had the wound cleaned and dressed. Mahadi was molded for a AFO and recasted, we look forward to seeing him again after six weeks!

Margaret from Malawi on 3 days ago
Margaret is back! She's already made fast friends with Maliana, who came in today for a wound inspection - she was very amused by the funny faces Maliana was making for the camera! We'll find out during ward rounds tomorrow what her next operation will be, please continue your prayers for her.

Margret from Malawi on 3 days ago
Margret seemed to be enjoying sitting by and watching the other kids do physiotherapy while she waited for her turn - she's so patient! She gave us a lovely smile when we took her picture!

Photo of Yohane
Yohane from Malawi on 3 days ago
Yohane is back! He's here for another operation for his burn contracture. This time, it's the larger operation where they temporarily sew the hand into a 'pocket' of skin on the stomach so that the skin and flesh can heal on. He's already out of surgery and asleep, so please be praying that he recovers well!

Loveness from Zambia on Oct 16, 2017
Loveness had a good weekend! She won't be having surgery today, but she will tomorrow. This is going to give her more time to rest and get better prepped. She spent some time earlier today with everyone else singing praises to God in the ward. Please be praying for her and her upcoming surgery!

Nivan from Kenya on Oct 16, 2017
We're so sorry we didn't keep you better informed of Nivan's progress, friends! He was discharged after his last little trip to the theatre, and we're happy to announce that he comes back for a checkup this Wednesday. Please pray that when he comes, his wound would look better and that he won't have to be re-admitted to the hospital like the last time he came for checkup. Thank you for your continued prayers!

Zewditu from Ethiopia on Oct 16, 2017
Zewditu is here with us at the hospital because she was supposed to have her soft tissue released from the left foot, but it got canceled. Before that procedure occurs, she first needs to see another doctor for her thyroid problem. Thank you for your continued prayers!

Joel from Uganda on Oct 16, 2017
Joel gets to go home today, which has made everyone around him very happy! Over the weekend Joel received several get well messages which were delivered today. Martha from the NGO Nehemiah held them up for him to see them. We will see him for his follow-up at the clinic in Kampala at the end of next month. Thank you for praying for Joel, writing him, and supporting him during his time at CURE!

Loveness from Zambia on Oct 13, 2017
Loveness is having a good day! She is so excited about wearing shoes on both feet someday, but for right now, she is getting started with her right foot. A few months ago, she wasn't even able to wear shoes because both her feet were a serious case of neglected clubfoot. We are so happy about the progress she has made so far! Please be praying for her as she prepares to get surgery on her left foot on Monday and that she will have a restful weekend!

Margret from Malawi on Oct 13, 2017
Margret is still doing well in her physiotherapy sessions with Lauren. She is able to walk using the walking frame and is being assisted by her grandmother who has come to visit her. We are happy that she has the passion to make sure that she gets well quickly. Please keep on praying for her!

Joel from Uganda on Oct 13, 2017
“I’m okay, but baby is sick so I feel concerned, he was disturbing through the night,” said Scovia. Last night Joel continued to have fevers and a convulsion. Yesterday’s lab worked showed an elevated level of white blood cells, a sign of an infection, so he has been placed on antibiotics and is under observation. This morning Joel and Scovia attended the nurse’s devotion time which she enjoyed, Joel even tried to clap along to a couple of the songs. “I have been praying for a quick recovery for the child and for the medical team,” said Scovia. Please join Scovia in praying for Joel to recover well.

Margret from Malawi on Oct 12, 2017
Francis has been assisting Margret today with physiotherapy and is doing the strut changes on the frames. Margret is not feeling any pain and soon will be doing her other sessions of physiotherapy. We thank God for Margret's progress! Thank you for praying for her!

Beatrice from Kenya on Oct 12, 2017
Friends, today Beatrice gets to go home and we are excited about it! She has a knee brace and crutches that will enable her to walk well as she continues with physiotherapy. Our doctors discovered that the problem was not her bones, but more of a ligament problem. Therefore a surgery would not really benefit Beatrice. The father went ahead and asked if he could get a second opinion from somewhere else and so one of our doctors wrote a note to explain everything Beatrice had gone through and what would need to be done. He also included on the note a number of hospitals where they could get a second opinion. Please keep Beatrice and her healing in your prayers!

Hiluf from Ethiopia on Oct 12, 2017
Hiluf went back to the Chesire Home and his father, Welay, went back home to the rest of his family. Hiluf will continue his recovery at Chesire and we will see him back at the hospital for his checkup next month!

Joel from Uganda on Oct 12, 2017
“Joel didn’t have a good night, he has high fevers, didn’t eat well this morning, and is irritable - he is crying a lot,” said Scovia. Today Joel went to the lab where he had a CBC, urine analysis and has been under observation for fevers. Last night he had a fever of 102.2 Fahrenheit. Scovia and Joel had visitors from an organization called Nehemiah who brought them to CURE. “We should pray that he becomes fine,” said Scovia.

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.
