"Let me hear what you're listening to," said Ethan as he grabbed the earphones despite protests from Nina. He knows what he wants and stops at nothing to get it, including his healing! Ethan is such a role model for being childlike and carefree while depending on God to heal him. Go Ethan!

When you pull his cheeks, he smiles! Chakupaleza almost never laughs in any other way. We are happy about his progress, our doctors will be doing his second procedure, hopefully next week and we can't wait to see how healing changes everything. Thank you for your prayers!

Ireen from Zambia2 days ago

Beautiful girl, in her nice dress! She is doing very well today and is waiting for her legs to heal properly. She is always bummed that she has to make new friends every time new kids come and old ones go, but she is equal to the task. We don't know what we will do without Ireen!

Nashira from Uganda2 days ago

Nashira went into surgery today and Dr. Justin is currently performing an (ETV) endoscopic third ventriculostomy and ventricular irrigation, visibility was too poor to do a (CPC) choroid plexus cauterization. Once out of the OR, she will be moved to the PACU to wake up and then transferred to the ICU where she will spend the night. Aisha was worried today about the operation but received a get well card and counseling by our spiritual team. Please keep Nashira in your prayers as she recovers.

“She is fine, fine,” said Agnes. Esther has been awake today and little more active then previous days, she has good use of her left side. She hasn’t been talking much today but understands Agnes, and will respond on and off. This evening Agnes and Esther are expecting Juliet to come and visit. Agnes seems to be doing better than yesterday, and she has spent the day with Esther and outside speaking with her friends. Esther’s doctors are focusing on physical therapy, getting her out of bed and seated in a wheel chair and working on getting her to eat orally. Please keep Esther in your prayers that she will continue to improve with her movements and eating.

Yididya had her revision hip surgery and it went well! She did not need to stay in the hospital for long so she went back home and she will continue her recovery from home. We will see her in a couple of weeks for a follow-up.

Chosadziwa from Malawi2 days ago

Poor Chosadziwa still feels a lot of pain during turns, but Dr. Lubega doesn't want to put him on painkillers that are too strong and risk him getting addicted to them. He said it shouldn't hurt that much at this point so they should try to talk to him and distract him during the turns - pray that helps! Don't worry, he was laughing in this photo, not in pain!

Tiyanjane from Malawi2 days ago

Tiyanjane's second operation went well and she's now recovering in the ward! They did the same thing that they did to her right knee earlier this year, taking a tendon across her leg and using it to pull the knee muscle into the right position so it will stop sliding out of alignment! They're going to let her wound rest a bit and then she'll start physiotherapy on Monday!

Melifa from Malawi2 days ago

Dr. Lubega thinks Melifa is well enough to go home since she lives locally! The wounds she has will take a long time to heal, so long that it doesn't make sense for her to stay in the hospital that whole time. Her mom will be taught how to dress the wound and then they will head home. Please be praying for Melifa as she heals! She'll be back August 5th for a checkup!

Awesome from Malawi2 days ago

Awesome looks a bit bored! He was lying in bed playing with a Bao board half-heartedly. He will be going to Feed the Children, a local shelter that takes in some of our kids sometimes with a bunch of other kids who need wound inspections next week. They'll all be coming back on Wednesday and getting their wounds inspected on Thursday.

Why I Support CURE

Tomlin-video-still_web
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.
