Aliya from Ethiopia on Today
Meet Aliya! She was a bit shy with us at first, but after a little while she played with us and we had fun! Today she is having a surgery on both legs to correct her bowed legs. Please keep her in your prayers for a successful surgery and a speedy recovery!

Dersolegn was all smiles at follow-up clinic today. His surgical wounds are healing well and the x-ray today showed good healing. He was instructed to continue to bear as much weight as possible using his crutches and we will see him back in three months time!

Takele from Ethiopia on Today
It was a pleasure to see Takele at his follow-up appointment today. He was re-casted and molded for a AFO that he'll get to try on in six weeks time at his next appointment with us! We think he's pretty happy with his progress!

Margaret from Malawi on Today
Margaret is back! She's already made fast friends with Maliana, who came in today for a wound inspection - she was very amused by the funny faces Maliana was making for the camera! We'll find out during ward rounds tomorrow what her next operation will be, please continue your prayers for her.

Margret from Malawi on Today
Margret seemed to be enjoying sitting by and watching the other kids do physiotherapy while she waited for her turn - she's so patient! She gave us a lovely smile when we took her picture!

Maliana from Malawi on Today
Maliana's back! She hasn't been readmitted but just came for a checkup. She and her mom came through the ward to visit people though and it looks like they know our friend Margaret!

Hooke from Malawi on Today
Hooke's back and has been readmitted! We're pretty sure he's here to have the plate removed from his left leg, but it could be that the doctor who usually sees him was busy in the operating room and might decide he needs more time once he measures the leg. Please be praying for him! He's walking amazingly well now and he and Margalita are so happy!

Thokozani from Malawi on Today
Thokozani was really absorbed by one of the toys in physiotherapy today - he didn't look up to smile and give a thumbs up to the camera as usual! His friends, on the other hand, gave you all big grins!

Mayamiko from Malawi on Today
Poor Mayamiko was grimacing in pain while she did her physiotherapy exercises today, so out of respect we decided not to photograph her... but when we took a photo of Margret and then turned back around she flashed us a huge smile so we would take her picture! Please be praying for her, physio can be tough but it's really essential to healing!

Jean Carlos from the Dominican Republic on Today
Dr. Coz, the puppet, went to visit our good friend Jean Carlos but it looks like someone did not want to leave the other's side. We still do not know if it was Dr. Coz or Jean Carlos, what we do know is that both became good friends!

Jalia from Uganda on Today
“After we were discharged, everything went back to normal. She was fine. She could play and was feeding well. However, last week her condition started to deteriorate and she got very weak, so I decided to bring her back to her doctors. Please pray for her so that she gets back to the normal state that she was in," said Hadijah, Jalia’s mom. Our doctors are now monitoring her and are making a plan for her treatment. We need your support and prayers, friends. Back at home Hadijah’s parents whom she lives with are very supportive and have been taking good care of Jalia, in fact, it is Jalia’s grandmother who provided the money needed for their transportation back to CURE.

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.
