Seyfoulaye from Niger on 2 days ago
Seyfoulaye is exploring the best spots on CURE Niger's playground - he doesn't have much else he needs to do these days - his cleft lip is basically healed and he, his mom, and his brother are just waiting for the governmental COVID-19 travel restrictions to be lifted - then it's home for awhile until his next checkup. Pray that while he waits he would benefit from the care and security available here.

Abdou Sofiane from Niger on 2 days ago
Sofiane is a phenomenal older brother - he took Seyfoulaye to the playground for some fun, making sure no one else took his baby brother's swing. Now, with the new COVID-19 social distancing measures in place, he lets other patients at the guesthouse know when they're getting too close to little Seyfoulaye - we're so proud of Sofiane for the way he watches out for his little brother as they both recover from surgery. Now, the two are pretty much healed, and it's just a waiting game until government COVID-19 travel restrictions are lifted. We thank God for such a strong brotherly bond and we pray for protection and complete healing over the pair.

Yasmina from Niger on 2 days ago
Yasmina checks out the goings-on around her from the safety of her mom's arms. She's been at the guesthouse more than a week now and because of COVID-19 travel restrictions, she and her mom will continue here until the situation changes. Meanwhile, little Yasmina is receiving bandage changes and her hand is continuing to heal - pray that this travel ban would actually be a blessing, and the new guesthouse 'family' would show her and her mom acceptance and love where their village showed condemnation and disdain!

Tassiou from Niger on 2 days ago
It's not often that we witness Tassiou looking alarmed, so when one of our CURE Niger staff, Issafou, caught him off guard while practicing a comedic skit, we had to get it on camera. But don't worry - Tassiou is healing well and in his usual high spirits, even during this time when patients and staff alike are asked to limit contact with each other. Pray for him and all the longterm patients at our guesthouse - as CURE Niger and Niger in general step up measures of protection against COVID-19, the usual sources of encouragement and support (such as the spiritual team) are keeping a physical distance for the patients' own good. Pray for supernatural encouragement and peace for all the patients and caregivers during this time.

Ebisa from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Ebisa was on his mother back, all dressed up and ready to go home! His lip is healing nicely so Dr. Tesfaye says there no reason Ebisa can't continue healing from the comfort of his own home. We will see Ebisa again next week when he returns for his check-up!

Dorika from Malawi on 2 days ago
It is another great day because Dorika is going home! Her mother has mastered the dressing change routine and she is confident that she can do it at home! The nurses gave Dorika enough bandages to keep up with everything until they come back. Please continue to pray that Dorika's foot does not get infected and that she heals smoothly!

Marrium from Malawi on 2 days ago
Marrium continues to get so much better! This morning our medical team encouraged Marrium to keep her leg elevated so that it does not swell up. On Monday, Marrium will have another vacuum change. Please continue to pray for Marrium and her mother as she there is a lot going on at the moment!

Tom from Kenya on 2 days ago
Tom might not have understood the get well messages we read him, but you can surely tell that he was excited to know that there are people who are reading his story and who care about him. His mum was so excited to see your messages and was helping translate them for her son. Tom is doing okay and will be observed over the weekend before he is allowed to go home, hopefully, on Monday.

We read Stephanie your get well messages and she loved them! She loved them so much she felt inspired to write you this little note back. Thanks for loving this young woman so well!

Faith from Kenya on 2 days ago
We were lucky to have caught up with Faith and her mother before they went home. She was able to read the get-well-messages you have all sent to her with her mother looking on, shedding a tear of joy, "We thank you so much for your continued support and encouraging messages. Our stay here was truly blessed." Faith's next appointment will be in six weeks! Please join us in thanking God for getting Faith this far!

Manzir from Niger on 3 days ago
Manzir slipped out of the ward before we could get a picture of him - sneaky guy! He's been discharged from the hospital but will be coming back for frequent bandage changes. With the threat of COVID-19 in the air, we want to pray special protection over Manzir and his grandmother as he recovers.

Beatrice from Zambia on 3 days ago
Beatrice's deformity was quite severe but Dr. Moyo was determined to correct it! The operation took some time but the team in the OR was patient throughout the whole surgery. Beatrice's left leg is now straight! And she is scheduled to have the second surgery on her right leg in a couple of weeks. Join us in praying that the slowly raising number of Covid-19 cases in Zambie doesn't affect the timeframe for her second surgery.

Chibanga from Zambia on 3 days ago
Meet 14 year old Chibanga. He has knocked knees and has come to the hospital with his mother Mwika. Chibanga has never been to any hospital for treatment and we're sure CURE Zambia is going to be a great first experience! Chibanga has been booked for surgery and we're ready to get this party started!

Nayli from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Nayli still hasn't started moving around so she just has to watch the other children playing. Not ideal, but she's spending her time resting and chatting with her father Jemal! Please keep praying for a speedy recovery!

Faiscale from Niger on 3 days ago
Faiscale is such a dynamic three-year-old - he can be laughing one second and crying the next, or cry-laughing, if that's the right word for it. He's happy now because he's with his mom and he gets to go home. Surgery went well and he'll just have to come back regularly for bandage changes and checkups to make sure his hand stays infection-free as it heals!

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.
