Elizabeth from Kenya on 2 days ago
Just as a precautionary measure, Elizabeth was advised to rest in between the physical exercises. This will help to minimize any ankle swelling that can inhibit the healing of the surgical wound. To keep her company as she rested, we asked her about some of her favorite games. She mentioned skipping rope while she gave us this little smirk. Elizabeth and her grandmother will be going home to continue her recovery. We are glad that she will go home having fully learned how to walk with her new assistive devices. We wish them a safe journey and look forward to seeing them during mobile clinic visits in 4 weeks!

Today, baby Claire was asleep on her mom's lap just after having been fed. Grace told us that since yesterday, baby Claire has been sleeping normally, which means 3 or 4 hours at a time. Now that recovery is going well, they will be discharged to go home. Thank you for your messages and prayers during their stay in the hospital.

Bethel from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Bethel's operation went well! Dr. Teddy did a great job securing the head of her thighbone into the hip socket. After placing it in the correct position, he applied a spica cast which covers half of her stomach and goes all the way down to her ankle. Now, Bethel is back in the ward resting and recovering. Please keep her in your prayers for a speedy recovery!

Jerome from the Philippines on 3 days ago
Jerome experienced another setback as the medical team found that there’s still some fluid in the operated site in his right hand. But the good news is his left hand has healed well. The medical team explained to Daddy Joel that this happens on very rare occasions and frequent dressing changes will be needed to make sure the wounds stay dry and medicated. Please keep praying that Jerome will continue to recover and trust God for his healing!

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.
