Marion from Kenya on Today
“My name is Marion. I’m ten. I’m in class four.” Our lovely lady is learning some good English, so we asked her questions and she answered them very well. She’s the kind of kiddo whose face can go from serious to a smile in a millisecond if you play your cards right. She would look so serious, but it didn’t take much for us to get her to smile big! It’s been awhile since we’ve seen her, but she’s doing very well. We’ll catch her next sometime in August when she comes to CURE for an X-ray to check on her hip. Thank Jesus with us that she’s doing so fabulous!

Jennifer from Kenya on Today
Oh our precious, serious friend! Funny enough it’s actually summer in Kenya, so today was hot and humid during mobile clinic. Because it was so hot, poor Jennifer was probably not feeling so fabulous. She spent the day sitting on her mom’s lap, wearing her pretty flower dress and relaxing. After she came back from getting an X-ray, she was waiting to see the doctor and a physio named Isaac from the hospital where we hold clinic went up to her, gave her a high five, and kissed her little hand. After this he did his own little assessment of her. When it was her turn, the doctor looked at her X-ray because there was some concern since she’s struggling to do physio, and they were not sure her hip was still in place. Good news is that she’s okay, and she can continue with physio! We’ll catch Jennifer at our next clinic on April 24th.

"Surafel is doing great!" says Dr. Mesfin. Surafel doesn't need his auxiliary crutches anymore and he can start walking without them. The look on his face when he heard the news says it all!

Lilian from Kenya on Today
Lilian had a really easy procedure and was allowed to go home this morning. We missed her, but we hope to see her when she comes back for review. Friends, please pray for her recovery!

Shantel from Kenya on Today
Shantel received her get well messages today and was very excited to find out that she has so many friends following up on her progress from all over the world. We printed the get well messages so that mum could read them to her whenever she wanted. We found her mum reading a verse that was sent to her daughter and trying to explain the meaning to her. “I am very amazed at how much love we are receiving and I thank God for that. I also thank everyone reading about and praying for Shantel, God bless you!” mama Sharon exclaimed.

Manuel from Malawi on Today
Manuel came in for a wound inspection today! We didn't manage to find the doctor who saw him to ask him how he's doing, but we suspect it's still looking a bit nasty because he's been marked down for a review in two weeks! Please be praying for him!

Xavier from Kenya on Today
Xavier went for an X-ray and the results showed that the problem was on his left hip, and on his right knee. We spoke to the person in charge of physiotherapy and rehab and she told us that Xavier had uniquely discovered a way to feed himself by using his right knee to push his elbow up and in turn be able to put food in his mouth. The discussion now is whether to do the knee surgery and stop him from feeding himself or just leave it and allow him to feed himself. The physio guys found a tool that would help Xavier use his hand more and that's really nice. Dear friends, please pray that the Lord helps to shed some light for our group of specialists so that they can decide what will be the best thing to do for little Xavier.

Margaret from Malawi on Today
Margaret came in for a checkup and some physiotherapy today with her mom! She's doing well, but the physiotherapy students say she still needs to keep on using her crutches. She won't need another operation anytime soon, but she still needs to be diligent with her walking exercises. We'll see her again April 3rd!

Anita from Kenya on Today
Anita had a successful surgery yesterday, and the smile on her face reflects how she was excited after coming out of theatre. “I am very happy that soon I will be able to scribble something, help my Mom, and as well continue with my studies. God bless CURE!" she shared. Let's continue to pray for this wonderful girl!

Collet from Uganda on Today
“I feel very happy,” said Jacob. Christine has very similar views towards the surgery, “I feel happy this operation will be done so Collet can become better,” said Christine. She has been praying for Collet that she would get better and be able to sit. After six years of waiting, Collet is getting her surgery. Dr. Justin is currently performing an OPM/ETV/CPC with the assistance of visiting Dr. Joyce. Prior to the operation, Collet played with her finger puppets. She has a frog and a deer, the deer is her favorite. She would take breaks from the puppets to greet all her “uncles and aunties” who would come to her bed. “Uncle” Sam the physiotherapist taught Collet how to fist bump and prior to his lesson she would give high fives and handshakes. Please keep Collet in your prayers that she will recover well and that the operation will be successful.

Viola from Uganda on Today
This morning Namubiru was told Viola was being moved out of the ICU and in to the ward! “I feel good going down. Viola is better. She was breathing bad on oxygen but now breathing well,“ said Namubiru. Viola still has her NG tube in but she is trying to spoon feed, and she has six more days of antibiotics. Prior to moving down to the ward, Namubiru sat outside the ICU with one of her friends and ate boiled eggs and drank tea. Later in the day, Viola got to go to the playroom for the first time since she has been here. Namubiru colored while Viola looked at a mobile before falling asleep. “Baby Viola has come to play, we are so excited to see baby Viola here,” said Annet from the Spiritual Center. Please keep praying for Viola that she will continue to improve!

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.
