Abel from Niger on Today
Even with the cast on Abel is making sure to get out of his room in the guest house and join in on some of the group games our spiritual staff have put together for the kids!

Balkissa from Niger on Today
Balkissa got super into a bowling-esque game that we've invented here at CURE Niger. She wasn't the most accurate in her throws, but she was one of the most passionate!

Amou from Niger on Today
Amou is doing well. She had a wound cleaning this morning and then took part in some group games and dancing!

Nassourou from Niger on Today
After his bandage change today, Nassourou stuck around to play a little version of bowling that we've invented here at CURE Niger. He was definitely one of the better players even though it was only his first time (it helped that the average age of the rest of the players was around 5 years old, but still) !

Souradji from Niger on Today
Souradji was in and out of the ward the same day. His mom also managed to organize a ride home for them over the weekend so Souradji is gone! At least until his first follow up appointment in a few weeks. Please don't forget to keep praying for him and we'll be sure to update you when he comes back for his follow up!

Innocent from Malawi on Today
Innocent and Umali are such cheerful BFFs! Here they are lounging on the physio bed waiting to be seen. Unfortunately, only ten minutes after we took this photo of them laughing, Innocent was throwing a fit and "running" away screaming, "I'm not staying, I'm going to die if you straighten my knee!" His dad, Umali's dad, and Physiotherapist Janet were all chuckling at this melodrama, but it probably does hurt quite a bit to have physiotherapy, even if it's not going to kill him, so please pray that the pain lessens and that he is diligent in doing his therapy so it doesn't get so stiff!

Stelia from Malawi on Today
Stelia's back for a checkup here in Blantyre! She's doing well but the doctor's notes say she'll be readmitted on June 30th, we imagine for another operation or perhaps to have the plates taken out. Please be praying for her as she heads back home!

Ireen from Zambia on Today
We are excited to be seeing Ireen smile and looking joyous more often! She and her mother are adjusting so well to our hospital environment. She will be going in for a cast change tomorrow in theater. Please keep praying for her as she continues to undergo physical and emotional healing!

Tylan from Kenya on Today
Tylan came again today and back so soon! When we asked Mama Tylan if Tylan smiles, she told us, “Yes, but sometimes.” Today apparently Tylan was feeling a bit serious or maybe a bit nervous about his appointment with the physios, but he got a good report and he’s doing well enough that he won’t come back until August. It also sounds like he is switching to night-only brace wearing which is reason to celebrate! Celebrate with us by thanking Jesus for Tylan’s progress!

Rachel from Malawi on Today
Rachel may look grumpy, but apparently she told Funny, "I am ready to write now," which sounds a lot more optimistic than she appears! Unfortunately she is not quite ready to write yet, as her skin grafts have only taken 60% so she will need alternate day dressings before she can go home. The doctors will check again on Friday to see if it's healed enough to send her home. Please be praying!

Prince from Kenya on Today
As Prince had his casts put on today, George teased Prince about how his mom will stop what she’s doing at the slightest of his cries. For poor Prince, even if he cries during his casting, it’s only for the best that the cast still gets put on. Even though the casting process isn’t his favorite, someday his straight feet WILL be his favorite, and we are thankful for that! We’ll see him next week!

Timothy from Malawi on Today
Timothy is waiting to go in for a wound inspection today! Please pray that his flap is healing on well and that everything is as it should be.

Evelyn from Malawi on Today
Evelyn is going into the operating room today! For now she's just having her wound cleaned and a vac put on - a special machine that sucks up all the bad stuff and promotes wound healing. Please be praying for her, and that the vac works well so that she can have her actual surgery soon!

Francis from Malawi on Today
Blessings popped in for a checkup with the doctors with his dad! He's looking good right now but we didn't manage to get a look at the notes and see what the doctors said, so we'll check in next time we see him!

Cyprian Carl from Kenya on Today
“Now I am happy,” Mama Ciprian told us today. Our boy has finished his casting and has gone to braces! Today we caught her talking with the mama of another one of our CUREkid clubfoot babies - Mama Prince! When we asked what they talked about, Mama Ciprian said, “The babies.” We’re thankful that they have both brought their babies to us and that they’re both on the road to healing together!

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.
