Marline from Uganda on Yesterday
Today, we caught baby Marline in the middle of a big yawn! Catherine was giving her some medicine, and after finishing it, she was ready to go back to sleep. Marline and Catherine are doing well in the ward. The neurosurgeons and medical team checked on them this morning, and the nurses continue to make sure Marline is getting all the medicine she needs while she waits for her surgery. Thank you for the kind get-well messages and for praying for her!

Jasper from Uganda on Yesterday
Jasper has developed a bit of a fever. The lab scientists did some tests and discovered he's fighting an infection and has low hemoglobin. The medical team prescribed antibiotics and a blood transfusion which should help him feel a lot better! He was a bit upset while Nurse Elizabeth set up the transfusion but comforted himself by sucking his thumb - what a sweet little guy!

Wezi from Malawi on Yesterday
Wezi is here for physical therapy today. She has a session with our physical therapist Diana and the two have become great friends. We've really missed this fun girl! Diana and the team noticed how much older Wezi has gotten. She's grown so much and is studying hard at school. Her mom says that she's walking great with her shoe raise. It'll be a quick session and then Wezi will go home and return again in January for more physio! Thanks for keeping Wezi in your prayers as she continues healing!

Israel Ethan from Uganda on Yesterday
Israel had surgery today! His parents were understandably feeling pretty nervous, but we were able to reassure them a bit and let them know how incredible the CURE neurosurgeons are! The neurosurgeons, nurses, scrub techs, and anesthesiologists worked together to perform an ETV procedure for little Israel. This will allow the fluid that has been blocked in his brain to flow more freely. After recovering in the post-anesthesia care unit, he was transferred to the ICU with his parents close by!

Rashima from Uganda on 2 days ago
Dr. Onen checked on baby Rashima during morning rounds today. She's doing well and holding steady while she waits for surgery. Hopefully, she and Jackie will have a quiet weekend in the ward, and she can have surgery early next week! The spiritual team leads worship on Saturday and Sunday mornings, and sometimes the moms and babies have a movie night, too. Thanks for praying for Jackie and Rashima!

Sendro from the Philippines on 2 days ago
Thank God it's Friday! And, thank God that Sendro gets to home today. Before saying goodbye, Child Mentor Patricia made sure to give him a bible to bring home. "I seldom get to attend church because of my condition," he told us. Thankfully, he can continue knowing more about God through reading His word at home while recovering. Please continue to pray for his recovery and that he will experience more of God's love and power in this process!

Dinah from Kenya on 2 days ago
This is Dinah and her mama. The mama who has cared for her for years, and most especially this week as she recovers in the hospital. The mama who has chosen to fight for and seek treatment for her daughter. The mama whose undying love has resulted in Dinah’s healing. Dinah and her mama will stay around this weekend, and hopefully, Dinah will be ready for a cast change on Monday.

Marvin from Uganda on 2 days ago
Marvin is heading home today! Neurosurgeon Dr. Onen checked on him this morning and said that he and Lydia could be discharged. They'll go over some exercises with Issac, our physical therapist before they go, and we'll see them again soon for a checkup at one of our mobile clinics! Lydia shared with us yesterday that Marvin has been doing great, and he already knows how to count to 10. She's hoping he can go to school next year. Thanks for praying for this sweet family as they head home today!

Asante from Malawi on 2 days ago
Asante both came and left with a smile! She was and still is excited about her healing. She'll be reviewed at her Mangochi clinic early next year with her brother Yamikani and will come back to the CURE hospital in six months for an X-ray to see if she is ready to have her 8-plates removed. Let's pray that her legs straighten and heal properly and that she and Yamikani have a smooth recovery together at home.

Yamikani from Malawi on 2 days ago
Little Yamikani has been discharged! He'll have his cast on for another six weeks and then have it removed at his local hospital in Mangochi. We plan to see him and his sister Asante again at our CURE clinic in their district in January next year. Please keep Yamikani in your prayers while he travels home with his sister, mom, and grandmother today!

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.
