Sweetbert from UgandaToday

Sweetbert and his mother Kasasa returned to CURE on Saturday! They traveled all the way from Tanzania to Mbale, Uganda, a journey which took two days by bus as they traveled over 650 miles. Sweetbert went into surgery today in which our doctors performed a subdural collection evacuation to treat a subdural hematoma. He is now resting in the ICU where he will spend the night. Please pray that Sweetbert makes a full recovery.

Emmanuel went into surgery today for a shunt removal which was successful! He is now resting in PACU and will soon be moved to the ICU where he will spend the night. Before Emmanuel gets a new shunt his infection will be treated. His mother Evelyn is doing well. While her son was in surgery she read her Bible and attempted to sleep. Please pray that Emmanuel will have quick recovery.

Bardu is still awaiting surgery. Hajara spoke to her husband over the weekend and was informed that Badru’s older brother is sick with malaria but her husband promised to come and visit them at CURE when their other child recovers. Please keep them in your prayers.

Joellianne from PhilippinesToday

Our little princess Joellianne is back, with a cute new haircut! Tomorrow she gets to unload that heavy spica cast, and replace it with a smaller lighter one that will allow her to move her hips, hooray! She will also have the hardware taken out of her hip that held everything together as she healed. Joellianne told mom Juvy that she was happy to see our Kid’s Mentor, Cyra, but she wasn’t very happy to see the nurses! Hopefully her opinion will change after a successful “mini-surgery” tomorrow, please be praying for a quick, easy procedure!

Gregoire from Niger3 days ago

Gregoire is still resting in the ward, and he can’t really move, because both of his legs are in a huge cast. Thankfully, he received a little toy plane today, so he can play around a little! Keep those prayers coming...he needs the encouragement!

Check out the newest Blues Brother! Amine found some shades he couldn't resist, and we're pretty sure no one else could resist him either.

Today's physiotherapy activity is more catching and throwing! She is champ at it, we can assure you. Good news too, Estery is about two thirds of the way through her treatment! So hopefully in about four weeks we can remove the frames. Not too long now!

We sat with Thoko listening to music on our laptop today. She told us that worship music is her fave, and she says "I like big groups of people singing with all their different voices together!" She also told us she's in a bit of pain today, so please keep praying for strength and perseverance for her as she goes through the rest of her treatment with the frame.

“I’m very very relieved,” said Mary about Jonah being out of surgery. Jonah went in today for an ETV/CPC to treat his hydrocephalus, and his operation was successful! He is now resting in the ICU where he will spend the night. This afternoon, Mary received seven get well messages, which was a huge encouragement to her. She thanks all those who wrote her, and please continue to pray for Jonah’s recovery.

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.
