A few months ago, I broke my elbow. It was nothing dramatic—just the natural outcome of the ridiculous idea that I could somehow ride a motorbike.

A young lady who was 17 years old came to CURE in Kijabe, Kenya. She was scheduled for an amputation. Everyone began doing their part to prepare this lady for the new reality she was about to face when she walks out of the operating room.

Who are your heroes?

by on Saturday, November 5, 2016 at 12:11 pm

Life is full of heroes. Some are known by many. Some are known by few. Some are the silent kind who work behind the scenes, making life a better place unbeknownst to almost everyone. Recently in Kenya, we celebrated Mashujaa Day. Mashujaa is the Swahili word for heroes.
