Tana from Zambia on 2 days ago
Tana has been discharged. She is going back home with cast on her left leg and she will come back in a couple weeks for her follow up review. We are facilitating her transport home to ensure that she gets there safely and minimizes potential exposure to COVID. Kindly keep praying for Tana!

Brian from Zambia on 2 days ago
We noticed that Brian has started becoming active! It is now part of his routine to get out of the bed move around the ward. This means he has gotten used to our kid friendly environment and the cast is no longer bothering him which is good!

Chafaatou from Niger on 2 days ago
Imane got a big smile out of Chafaatou earlier! They're both healing at our patient guesthouse together, and it's cool to see Chafaatou start to open up. His lip is healing well so it won't be too long now till he's headed home!

Zeinab from Niger on 2 days ago
Zeinab's done with her first surgery! Here Djamila focuses while she makes the initial incisions to remove this girls' extra fingers. Because her surgery was small, Zeinab has already been discharged for the weekend - pray for her as she recovers at home!

Gloria from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Good news! The time for Gloria to go back to her family is near. She has been walking well with the support of her AFO brace and she is getting better every day! Today she spent some time reading all of your get-well messages. She is happy and grateful for everything you have prayed over her.

Zeinab from Niger on 3 days ago
Please join us in welcoming little Zeinab to CURE Niger as she gets ready for her surgery! We can't wait to get her extra fingers and toes removed, but what will also be removed is the stigma and gossip that's associated with a condition like hers in Niger!

Kadidja from Niger on 3 days ago
Kadidja didn't want to go home after her bandage change, so Salamatou from our spiritual team took her over to her office for a special gift - a mini hippo! "Even at home she asks, 'when can I go play with auntie Salamatou?'" said her mom, Fatouma. Salamatou has a special way with our patients, and we're so blessed to have her!

Manirou from Niger on 3 days ago
Manirou loved watching his mom use a sewing machine for the first time! Mantou from our spiritual team gave all our patient moms a mini-lesson, and everyone found it pretty entertaining. Manirou's continuing to heal well - now he just has to go to physical therapy three times a week instead of five. Keep praying for him as his leg gets stronger and stronger.

Chafiou from Niger on 3 days ago
We caught up with Chafiou during one of his bandage changes this week - his arm is healing well from last week's break, BUT his legs have had an allergic reaction to the braces he's been wearing, so it's time to let them breathe a bit. Pray that the medicine our team is trying will work, and soon the reaction will be gone.

Souleymane from Niger on 3 days ago
Souleymane is really recovering from surgery well - he was up and bouncing around almost immediately after and now he's ready to go home! We'll see him again next week for bandage changes and maybe some physical therapy. Keep praying for this little guy as he recovers at home this weekend.

Chaltu from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Chaltu came back for her check-up today and the wound from her operation is healing well. She's worn a neck collar for the past couple of days which has helped her to support her neck but Dr. Tesfaye says she doesn't need it anymore! She will continue her healing from home and we will see her again in a month when she returns for her check -up!

James from Kenya on 3 days ago
With Beth and Naomi's (physical therapist) encouragement, James was able to walk around the ward aisle and even up to the bathroom! He was quite slow since the cast on his leg goes from his thigh all the way down to his foot which makes his left leg quite heavy. We are hopeful that by tomorrow, James will be doing better with his new crutches and be prepared to be discharged to continue with recovery at their home. God is indeed good!

Desalgne from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Now that Desalegn is in the clear with his toes, it's time to go back to Cheshire Homes (our partner who helps us lodge long term patients) where he will be staying for the coming couple of weeks. While he is in there, he will continue his practice moving his toes. But before leaving, he got another healing cast on to help him keep his foot progressing. We will see him again when he returns for his check-up!

Tamara from Kenya on 3 days ago
Early this morning, Tamara started her physical therapy session with the help of her mother, Susan. It was uncomfortable at first since she had been laying on her bed for long hours after her surgery, but eventually she made a few steps around their section in the ward. The get well messages you've been sending their way will really help raise her spirits as she continues with her recovery!

Faith from Kenya on 3 days ago
Faith was excited to see one of her friends from CURE Kenya while they both attended our mobile clinic near their home this week. Faith was even more excited to see how well his leg is doing after surgery. Faith is not doing bad herself. The doctor was really happy with her progress and asked her dad that we see them again during our next clinic near their home.

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.
