Ezra from Kenya on Today
Ezra is a sweet boy! Today was a bit scary for him. The doctor asked him to walk barefoot without any orthotics on his feet. Ezra was very afraid and unstable. He’s been wearing his orthotics for years now, which give him the confidence that he needs to walk. Without them, he’s a bit unsure of things. Over the next three months, Ezra will start to practice walking without them. One day with them, then the next without. This will be the case until he gains confidence. When he comes back to mobile clinic on March 8th, hopefully he’ll be ready to say goodbye to his orthotics and say hello to confidence! Please pray for Ezra in this!

Dr. Negrini prayed over Aminatou right before he began her surgery. The surgery itself went off without a hitch, and Aminatou is now sleeping off the drugs with a healed lip!

Salamatou from Niger on Today
Salamatou's surgery was a success! There was a little complication when her palate tore slightly during the stitching process, but nothing too serious. She'll be in a little pain when she wakes up, but she's sleeping peacefully for the moment!

Imassane from Niger on Today
Imassane stopped in for her follow-up today and is looking great without that cast on! Her foot still has a little residual clubbing, but the doctors are excited about the way things are heading. They've instructed her to walk without her walker any more, and Imassane is heading home to strengthen up. Once school lets out in May, Imassane is scheduled to return for her next surgery!

Safia from Niger on Today
Safia stopped back in for her follow-up appointment today. She got her cast off and her leg is healing up nicely although it is still fragile. She had a new, smaller cast put on and went on her way. It was a great little visit with this wonderful young lady, and we were pumped that we got to deliver a bunch of your get well messages to her!

Lucy from Kenya on Today
Our good friend Lucy came for are check-up today. She was in the company of her little sister, Esther and her mum. Clinic was quite busy today, so we had a lot of catching up time with her as she waited for her turn be reviewed. When she finally got to meet the doctor, some good news was waiting for her; her feet's healing is on track, she is doing so well that she doesn't have to come for review for another six months. Today being thanksgiving there is so much to thank God for around this lovely girl Lucy. We are thankful for her family who is so faithfully committed to her healing, process always showing up for clinic and following the doctor's instructions . We are thankful that after a year out of school, she will be resuming school in January. We are also thankful for friends like Nancy, another one of our CURE kids who had the same condition as Lucy. She called her today and had some very good word of encouragement for her. We're also very thankful for all of you out there who have walked with her through this journey, with your very encouraging get-well messages and prayers and most of all, we are thankful to God for how far He has brought this lovely girl so far.

Alfred from Uganda on Today
Alfred and Rita came back to CURE on Tuesday. Alfred was admitted with a failed ETV/CPC. His doctors have been making a plan and their is a high probability he will have surgery tomorrow. Alfred and Rita have both settled in the ward after spending a night at the hostile because the ward was full. Alfred had a front row seat to the chapel. He clapped along during the worship songs he seemed to like them a lot. Please be praying for Alfred that his upcoming operation will be successful, and for him to regain the abilities he has lost.

Loveness from Malawi on Today
Loveness is doing well today! More good news - she gets to go home tomorrow! We're glad we managed to get a smile out of her before then. She'll need to have the frame on for about three months before we can take it off, and we'll be lengthening her leg about two centimeters - which won't take that long. The three months is so that everything heals! Please be praying for her as she travels tomorrow!

Fatima from Malawi on Today
Fatima had her operation today! The doctors used the X-ray machine to double check where they needed to make cuts, then cut her femurs in a couple places and put a rod through to hold them straight and in place. It turns out, she doesn't need surgery for her tibias, so they just did the femurs! Please be praying for her as she recovers.

Kazungu from Uganda on Today
“They are going to operate tomorrow,” said Angela. Kazungu and Angela have had a good day. Kazungu is very happy and eager to meet new people. Yesterday, he made friends with Dr. Justin who picked him up during ward rounds, which he enjoyed. Today, they have been sitting along the walkway leading to the OR, it is a prime position for Kazungu to get high fives and handshakes. Please be praying for tomorrow's operation to be successful.

Nathan from Uganda on Today
“I’m discouraged. I’m not convinced of the surgery. Let me wait and see what will happened let me wait. If the operation was successful the head will not swell if not successful it will swell,” said Sarah. Sarah is worried that yesterday’s operation will fail and Nathan will need another operation. She is also worried about a growth in the cerebrospinal fluid, which has resulted in Nathan being placed on antibiotics. She has also brought up concerns about Nathan as he grows up what he will be able to do. Dr. Peter and Dr. Justin said they would meet with Sarah to answer all her questions. Immaculate shared a story of encouragement with Sarah and Esther whose son Ednan was next to Nathan in the ICU. Please pray for Nathan that he will not need another operation, and that he will grow up well and for strength for Sarah.

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.
