Diso from Ethiopia on Today
Diso and some of her friends came back to CURE Ethiopia for a check-up today. Diso's foot is showing progress and looks great! The wound from her operation is healing well, and she got measured for an AFO (Ankle Foot Orthosis) brace. She will return in six weeks for her brace fitting, and until then, she received another cast to keep her foot straight!

Rashima from Uganda on Today
Rashima had her surgery today! "I'm not too worried, because this is her second time," Jackie shared with us. Jackie is a trained hairdresser. She had a couple of appointments today with some of the other moms, and she was glad to have something to keep her mind occupied while she waited. Rashima's surgery went well! After praying for her, Dr. Onen and the operating room team performed the surgery to treat her hydrocephalus. Dr. Onen determined that she needs a shunt and installed one for her. A shunt is a tiny plastic tube that runs from the baby's brain, under their skin and into their stomach area, to help drain the extra fluid from their brain. This should help Rashima feel a lot better soon! Thank you for praying for her and Jackie and for all the get-well messages!

Kassalem from Ethiopia on Today
Kassalem came back to the CURE Ethiopia for his foot appointment today. Dr. Mesfin told him, his foot is healing pretty well and showing great progress. He has to wear his AFO (Ankle Foot Orthosis) for the coming three months. After that, he can walk without any support. We will see him in a couple of days when he returns for his hand appointment.

Hasabe from Ethiopia on Today
Hasabe has come for another check-up today, and she is doing perfectly. The right foot is healing well and showing a good progress. The cast she had on for the past six weeks did a good job keeping her foot straight. It is off now, and we will see her again in three months when she returns for her check-up!

Marline from Uganda on Today
Marline had her surgery today! Because the babies can't eat anything for a few hours before their surgeries, she was pretty hungry before heading into the operating room. Thankfully, Catherine was able to calm her down by singing to her. Neurosurgeon Dr. Wegoye and the operating room team performed the surgery she needed to treat her spina bifida. In this picture, the anesthesiologists are preparing her for surgery. They're an indispensable part of the surgical team, and we're so thankful for them! They allow our patients to have surgery without pain during their operations, which is truly amazing. Marline is recovering now in the ICU, with Catherine close by. Please pray for Marline's recovery.

Emmanuel from Kenya on Today
Even before Emmanuel had his surgery, he had a visit from his uncle! We’re not sure what all they did during their visit, but we hope that as Emmanuel continues to recover, he remembers the special visit he had with his uncle!

We’ve been sending photos to one of Dinah’s relatives, and her mom wanted another photo of them together as they were preparing to leave. Dinah is going home and this is fabulous news -- good enough to smile about! Thank Jesus with us that she gets to go home!

Abel from Kenya on Today
Abel's procedure was successful! He had his femur shortened in order to straighten his leg. Next, a cast will be placed on his leg to hold it in position and as it heals. We are grateful to God that Abel received corrective surgery today, and we are praying for his smooth and quick recovery.

Fethia from Ethiopia on Today
Fethia is here in the CURE Ethiopia for her operation. Today, she is having a proximal tibia epiphysiodesis on the left leg. The operation will help the right leg to catch up with the other one and minimize the discrepancy. Please pray for a successful procedure and a speedy recovery.

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.
