Mary from Malawi on Today
Mary had her tenetomy yesterday and is a still bit cranky today, but is otherwise recovering well! Her extremely minor operation, which is usually done under local anesthesia in the ward, went well! Clinical Officer Mak explains a bit in the video of what they did and not being able to get it all the way corrected. When we talked to Dr. Kyle, he says that means that they'll need to do another, more invasive operation next week. Please pray for her! https://youtu.be/3J6G1iKzim4

Elinat from Malawi on Today
Elinat's hanging out with her new best friend Esther today! We asked Elinat and her mom Liviness how they're doing. Elinat has been really well and she is recovering rapidly. Please be praying for Liviness and Elinat, for God's provision for their family after they leave the hospital. Liviness says that she and Elinat feel so loved and cared for here, like they're at home with their family, and she is so thankful.

Hooke from Malawi on Today
Hooke's recovering great from his frame removal yesterday. He and Precious both had operations and they're both making goofy faces and so happy today! Hooke seems super happy that his frame is off, a lot less pain for him! He's been discharged and will probably be going home soon.

Faith from Malawi on Today
Faith was trying to hide from the camera, but we got her in the split second she peeked out from under the physiotherapy pillow! She's already come into our office a couple of times today - she's really interested in the surgery photos, which makes sense since she wants to be a doctor! We showed her the photo of her own operation, as well as her friend Elinat's, yesterday. Today we were working on a video update about Mary's tenetomy and she came in to watch it. Don't worry, we didn't show her anything with a lot of blood, tenetomy's are fairly boring!

Ruth from Kenya on Today
God works in ways we cannot understand as human beings and Ruth's case is a perfect example of such. When we first met her in December last yer she could not walk or move around a lot except if she had a wheelchair. She struggled with this because she is very playful and couldn't stand the sight of other kids playing without her.

Today, Ruth came back for yet another procedure and we are so happy about all the things God has done for her and is continuing to do. Her mum says she is very happy because of all the improvements she can see in her daughter. We were particularly happy because Ruth can stand on her feet without struggling like she used to before treatment. She has a beautiful and resilient heart and we are grateful to God for that!

Ruth has had two surgeries at CURE before, and now she is here to have the third. She still has to go through at least three more and we hope and pray that she will feel God's presence with her throughout this process. Ruth's mum is very excited because she can see all the changes her daughter is going through and she thanks God for everything. Please friends, do not stop praying for Ruth. She is a little girl with big dreams! Together, we can help her accomplish them!

Hadijah from Uganda on Today
“At 5:00am this morning first thing I did was to pray for Hadijah because last night I was told that she will be going in for surgery. I prayed for God to get her out of the surgery alive. I then called people at home so they are aware that she is going to be operated today. I am not worried”, said Rovisa. The surgery was straight-forward one and we'll have more details to share tomorrow!

Gabriella from Uganda on Today
“Today I must attend devotion because I have a testimony. My testimony is that my child is safe and out of the theatre. Yesterday I missed prayers because I was feeding her during that time. I was so happy when the doctors told me that they didn’t insert a shunt in her because I was worried about it. I have even already noticed change in her because she is not crying as much as she used to and she slept well,” Florence said. Gabriella was one of the first children to be operated on yesterday, she spent a night in ICU, and this morning the doctors told Florence that they will transferred back to the ward today. She was able to call her family yesterday and shared the good news with them. Join us in thanking God for his healing!

Ibra from Uganda on Today
“They told me we are discharged home, I feel good,” said Aisha. She has noticed positive changes in her son, he is less irritable, he now feeds well and sleeps longer. In a week, Ibra will get his stitches removed and in a month we will see them when they return to the hospital. Prior to leaving, Aisha and Ibra received several get well messages. During their time at CURE, messages like those have been a big encouragement. Thank you for your prayers and support during their stay at CURE, please continue to pray for Ibra’s recovery!

Axl from the Philippines on Today
You're welcome to join us in praying for Axl as he continues to recover at the hospital. He was in pain when we came by to visit him, but was also encouraged that this will pass and he'll be able to walk again someday! But more than our own words of encouragement, we showed him scriptures that confirmed God's great plan for him in the future!

Harry from the Philippines on Today
With bright lights surrounding the surgical table, Dr. Dave intricately made the cut on Harry's right leg that will best fit in a prosthesis. His leg was lifted up a few times during the process as Dr. Dave scanned the details of the amputation before he closed with stitches. The first step is over and there were no smiles from Harry yet, since he is sound asleep in the recovery room. While we wait for him to wake up, feel free to write your prayers and send it through a Get Well letter!

Muliftu from Ethiopia on Yesterday
Mulistu is at CURE for her first operation and is bravely waiting for her time to go into the operating theatre. She will have several procedures in this first surgery all so that her left leg can catch up in length over time to her right leg. Please be praying that all will go smoothly and that her recovery will go well!

Dersolegn from Ethiopia on Yesterday
Dersolegn had a procedure on his left foot and is recovering well! He went home over the weekend and was in good spirits when he left. We're looking forward to seeing him again soon for follow-up and updating you on his progress!

Zenash from Ethiopia on Yesterday
Zenash had her first procedure with us! Dr. Tesfay, who specializes in plastic surgery, and Dr. Rick performed the operation together and corrected her wrist deformity by removing her burn contracture and giving her a flap and skin graft. She's recovering well and also has had a dressing change to keep things clean while it's healing. Please be praying that Zenash's recovery process will be quick and infection-free!

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.
