Manirou from Niger on Yesterday
Manirou's surgery was a big one which means he's at the start of a pretty rough recovery process. Our CURE Niger nurses are taking good care of him and helping him manage the pain, but it's not fun. Please be praying for strength and perseverance for this young man!

Kauthalah from Uganda on Yesterday
Kauthalah and her mom are getting settled in at CURE Uganda! One special thing about the hospital is the friendships that moms can develop here. Today, Kauthalah met baby Ethan as their moms were both outside. Hopefully these moms can be friends and encourage each other over the weekend!

Marline from Uganda on Yesterday
Marline and mama Catherine made the long journey all the way from South Sudan to come back to CURE Uganda. Unfortunately, Marline's cerebrospinal fluid has become blocked again, so her head started to re-increase in size. The CURE Uganda doctors and nurses are doing tests to figure out exactly what's causing this problem, and are making a plan to help Marline. We'll keep you posted! Thank you for praying for Marline, Catherine and their family.

Mibatou from Niger on Yesterday
As predicted, Mibatou had her bandages changed in order to keep her infection free! Since her home is far away from CURE Niger, she's actually hanging out here in our guest house as she get's her regular bandage changes. While here, she likes to meet new people who come visit the hospital and we got this shot of her teaching a visitor the unofficial CURE Niger handshake! Please pray for her as she works towards complete healing.

Ismael from Niger on Yesterday
Ismael has had his surgery! He was a bit upset because he didn't want another cast after the surgery, but our anesthesiologist Dr. Diane and the nurses convinced him that everything would be OK. The surgeons straightened his leg and put a metal pin into his lower right leg to strengthen the bones. Because the pin gives support, Ismael doesn't actually need a cast and only has bandages on his leg! Please pray for him as he starts the healing process.

Lavine from Kenya on Yesterday
Lavine’s mum was out visiting another mama and her child who had just been discharged when we got to Lavine’s bed this morning. Lavine is hoping they can also go home so she can see all her little friends. Thank you for your prayers and support throughout their stay here!

Beldine from Kenya on Yesterday
“I am okay. I just felt a lot of pain at night and wasn’t able to sleep well.” Beldine told us when we asked how she was doing. Beldine was in some pain through the night despite being given pain medication. Her pins were removed in the OR and now she has to wear this new cast for six weeks before we can take it off and start her physical therapy. She was a bit drowsy this morning so we encouraged her to sleep and rest after we prayed for her.

Esther from Uganda on Yesterday
Esther is having a pretty quiet day today, but yesterday she had a special surprise - her big brother came to visit! He is 13 years old and since Ugandan schoolchildren are on their school holidays, he was able to take the bus to come and see her. What a very sweet big brother! He and Josephine and Esther enjoyed spending time together, and he even attended afternoon worship on the ward with them. Such a special encouragement. Esther is scheduled for surgery on Monday, so has just a couple more days to wait!

Christine from Uganda on Yesterday
Christine was discharged this morning and she and Judith are heading home! We'll see them again in a few weeks at a mobile clinic near their home. They have a long journey ahead of them, so please be praying for safe travels and continued healing for baby Christine!

Miracle from Uganda on Yesterday
Miracle's dad came to check on her and mama Esther today! Because space at the hospital is limited, we only have room for one caregiver, but we welcome other family members to come visit. Miracle is doing really well and she and Esther will move from the ICU back to the main ward today. She has such a loving and supportive family!

Tewodros from Ethiopia on Yesterday
Tewodros is doing wonderful and enjoying his stay in the ward! He usually spends his days playing with his friends and doing different crafts. Other than that, he is being diligent in practicing his walking around the ward with the help of his walking frame!

Gloria from Ethiopia on Yesterday
Gloria is doing well and continuing her recovery in the ward! While she's here, she is adding another language to her repertoire, Ethiopia's national language Amharic! So far she's got the greetings down! Keep on praying for her!

Lefiker from Ethiopia on Yesterday
We found Lefiker wheeling around the the ward and enjoying her day. As usual, she was a little shy in front of the camera. The other day she had a trip to the operation room for a frame adjustment and her foot is showing progress. Keep on praying for her!

Rahma from Ethiopia on Yesterday
We found Rahma in bed playing! She is doing great and continuing her healing. She is also doing a wonderful job with her physical exercises! Keep on praying for this sweet child for a speedy recovery!

Eshete from Ethiopia on Yesterday
"Look, I'm learning how to use the computer mouse" says Eshete wiggling the mouse. He was in the playroom with the other children playing and asking Temesgen, one of our counselors, about the computer mouse. Eshete is doing wonderful and expanding his knowledge in the ward!

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.
