Tresford from Zambia on Today
It was a little warmer today outside the hospital and so Tresford was among lots of people outside the ward sun - basking. He is still getting used to having casts on and this has made him a bit cranky having to move around with the heavy casts on his legs. Please be praying for him and his dad and their stay in the hospital.

Enock from Kenya on Yesterday
All our attention was drawn toward Enock as he arrived at our clinic in Nakuru and guess what? Enock was walking without any support! We praised God for that progress. He was smartly dressed and had a glowing face, he was also excited to see the works of God since his first time at CURE. Thank you for your prayers, indeed these are the results of prayer, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. It's now time to give thanks and continue praying for him until we meet him at the next clinic. Blessings!

Lucy from Kenya on Yesterday
We had a wonderful time with Lucy at clinic! We have missed her, Lucy is such a blessed girl and has a good heart. Despite all the challenges she has encountered, there is not a single day you will meet her with a dull face, indeed she posseses a precious smile! The good news today is that she is progressing well and orthotics were measured for and she is to be fitted on the 26th of July. Until then, we will indeed miss her and we continue to pray for her quick recovery!

Its now been three months since we sang a happy birthday song to our boy Felix! We met Felix last week at our clinic in Nakuru, he was happy as always. He is currently walking well with knees flexed. Stretching exercises were done and he is progressing on well. We continue to pray for him and we look forward to see him at the next clinic July 5th in Kijabe!

Abdul from Malawi on 2 days ago
In and out! Abdul's been discharged today since the frame removal is such a minor procedure. His leg is nice and straight now and he'll be seen at our September clinic in Lilongwe. Please be praying for him as he goes back to school and life - and pray that he obeys his mom when she tells him not to climb up fences!

Lufina from Malawi on 2 days ago
Lufina's a menace today - she's been grabbing our hands and SQUEEZING as hard as she can - but then again it's only fair since we tickle her back! Here she is, hiding behind Gilberta's wheelchair!

Calvine from Malawi on 2 days ago
When CUREkids Coordinator Avanell came in today, Calvine was already in physio and in the CKC office running around with Thandy. Calvine loves "DJ" Thandy and he complains if we turn off the African music! He also likes to sit on Thandy's desk and touch everything!

Photo of Kalulu
Kalulu from Uganda on 2 days ago
Luwemba has made a decision to follow Jesus! During his time at CURE listening to the daily church services and seeing Kalulu become healed, he believed there was a God who loved them. Luwemba hasn’t found a church near his house, so his sister travels one hour every Sunday to share the gospel with them. Kalulu is doing well and he returned to CURE for a follow up appointment. His back has healed and he is happy. He received a couple of get well messages and ran around the hospital greeting his old friends. He also had fun in the ward, playing with his dad's phone. Please be praying for Kalulu to keep growing up well and for Luwemba to keep growing in his faith!

Beatrice from Kenya on 2 days ago
Beatrice was here yesterday and we were very pleased to see her! More-so because she is making remarkable progress in her healing journey. Beatrice had an X-ray and some pins were removed which means her bone is beginning to grow back well. She was also re-casted to make sure her bone does not shatter or break as she undergoes the second phase of healing. Beatrice will be back in four weeks time and we are hopeful that her leg will be completely healed. Thank you for your continued support both in prayers and in kind!

Tresford from Zambia on 3 days ago
Tresford is not doing too well today. He has malaria but, he has already started medication for it. He has been cranky and will only calm down when his dad puts him on his back. Please be praying that the malaria episode passes quickly.

Twidai from Zambia on 3 days ago
Today has been a cold day and many kids in the ward have stayed in bed and so did Twidai! He's doing better today and he is being the kind 'big brother' figure that he is to the younger kids. He was seen sharing fruit with Patson, the boy right next to him in the ward. Please be praying for quick recovery for Twidai!

Loveness from Zambia on 3 days ago
Loveness is doing so good! She is a happy and confident girl - so different from when she first came to CURE! She came to CURE yesterday so she could be on time for her followup this morning. She is doing so well, and her foot is looking great! She will be back in September for her next followup. We are excited to see her almost at the finish line of her healing journey!

Lufina from Malawi on 3 days ago
Lufina seems to already be fully recovered from her surgery - in terms of her attitude at least! She's already laughing and giggling again although she's walking around with a stiff leg we're sure the physios will get her bending it again in no time!

Calvine from Malawi on 3 days ago
Calvine and a bunch of the other little boys - Neyma and Ebenezer - are playing the "run away screaming and giggling" game! It's so much fun! Unfortunately, Calvine's hand doesn't look good enough to go home yet, but hopefully next week he'll be all set! His granny seems a bit disappointed, but he doesn't seem to mind having more time to play with the other kids!

Abdul from Malawi on 3 days ago
Abdul's just come in to have his frame off today! He showed up at 11:00 pm last night so we were so surprised to see him dressed to go in for his operation this morning! Please be praying for him as he has his frame off.

Wubalem from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Wubalem was so happy when she heard that she could go back home and be with her family! Dr.Tim asked her to promise to work hard in school and she did! She will come back in six months for another checkup and we will see how her school and health is then.

Belete from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Belete is hanging in there! He still could not use his crutches because it is a bit painful for him to walk, but other than that, his wound is healing well and everything looks good. We will see his progress in two weeks when he returns for another checkup.

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.
