Samuel from KenyaToday

Phoebe, Samuel's grandmother, was so grateful that today they did not have to come all the way to the hospital in Kijabe. We met her and Samuel in a mobile clinic at a hospital near their village. Samuel was happy as always, his smile spreading to all of us. They were both delighted to see Samuel's leg when the cast was removed. "You know, the last time, it was swollen and very smelly, I was worried of what would happen to it, now it looks like it's going to heal," Phoebe told us with a smile on her face. We thank God for these beautiful smiles and we continue praying for full recovery for Samuel.

Mendesil did great today! This was his first operation and he will have a couple more surgeries to achieve the goal of having a straight foot. Please keep him in your prayers!

Diana is waiting to go in for her surgery right now! Please be praying for her as she has her operation later today, that everything goes smoothly and that her skin graft takes well! We'll post photos of her operation tomorrow.

Pemphero from MalawiToday

Pemphero's trying to get a scrap of paper out of the gutter - she seems quite intent! She didn't look up at the camera until I stooped down to see what she was trying to get to! She's doing well, Dr. Lubega says the wound looked okay yesterday, so they'll check it again on Friday and if it's still healing well, she'll get to go home!

John from the PhilippinesToday

After a couple of weeks, John's casts finally came off! Our buddy wasn't thrilled during the process, but it was worth it because he is now cast free! Must be weird to place his feet on the ground without it, and now he'll be in physical therapy regularly. We'll check on him again in a few months to see how he's doing!

Rizz Ann from the PhilippinesToday

The prayers for Rizz Ann are being answered, her hip that we thought would hurt today feels great today! We wish we could say the same about her arm though, it was pretty sore this morning. Dr. Jun got a good feel for how she was doing, and she’s “normal” for the day after surgery, but she still deserved a hug. In the end, she even managed to muster a smile! And more good news, we saw her in the playroom earlier coloring, looks like she’s on the upswing!

Krizylle from the PhilippinesToday

Krizylle was tear-free again this morning, what a tough kid! She’s still having some expected pain, but was able to wiggle her fingers which means that everything is working as it should. She managed to make it up to the playroom afterwards for some coloring, another great sign that she’s doing well! Thanks for all your prayers!

Twidai from ZambiaToday

Twidai is looking smart today! He was just discharged and is on his way home. He says he is going to study hard and also bring his books with him the next time he comes. He is doing so much better and it looks like he will heal really fast!

Nejat from EthiopiaYesterday

Nejat is having a great time in the ward! She is just a brave little girl, she never complains of any pain even though she has a frame on her tibia. We are so happy she spent her day playing and enjoying her time in the ward!

Silaji from MalawiYesterday

Silaji is quite happy today! He will be having a dressing change either today or tomorrow, so you can pray that it goes well and he bounces back quickly! Earlier today we saw him skipping around and giggling!

Thom is chilling in bed today deconstructing his phone (not really, he was just cleaning the back). He got out and about a bit in a wheelchair to go watch some tv, but otherwise not much has been happening!

Mendesil from EthiopiaYesterday

When we first met Mendesil today he was so scared of us and didn't even want to shake our hand! But after watching us talking to his father, he came close and start playing with us. We have good feeling we will be best friends in the next couple of days!

Jesicah from KenyaYesterday

Yesterday, Jesicah's mom and little brother came to visit. Today, Jesicah's aunt and cousin came, and more exciting news, Jesicah gets to go home!!! We caught her outside with her family coming back from CURE's workshop. We are so thankful she is healing and walking well, and we are also thankful that she is well enough to go home! She will come to clinic for review on September 8th, and we are hoping for great progress! Thanks for your thoughts, prayers, and support for this sweet child!

Diana from MalawiYesterday

Meet Diana! Diana is a little girl with pretty serious burn contractures that happened when she was a little baby. In the picture, Dr. Maina is lamenting the fact that she wasn't brought in three months after it happened, instead of almost eight years when the procedure becomes more challenging. It's a lot easier to treat these conditions when the kids' hands are still little and flexible! Diana will need operations on both hands, but for now we'll start on the more severe right hand. Unfortunately, she'll lose her pinky finger, but hopefully we can bring the rest around! Please be praying for Diana as she goes in for her operation tomorrow morning!

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.
