Misheck from Zambia on Today
Misheck has a condition known as knock knees, but not for much longer! He has come to CURE Zambia with his father Dennis. During the admission process, we discovered Misheck is not in school and everyone has encouraged Dennis to enroll Misheck in school after he gets healed. Misheck will soon have surgery to correct his knocked knees and one major hurdle to getting to school will have been removed from his life!

Esther from Zambia on Today
During surgery Dr. Lastroni, did a procedure known as a fibula transfer to correct Esther's leg! Basically this just means he moved a few bones around in her leg to make everything straight and as it should be. The surgery went very well and she had a long leg cast put on to hold everything in place for the next couple of weeks. She is recovery and can use your prayers.

Bravel from Kenya on Today
We are grateful to God for Bravel who went to the OR and had his surgery! Bravel has now taken his first step towards a straight right foot! While it will transform his entire life, Bravel is most excited about being able to wear shoes on not one, but BOTH his feet! Please pray for Bravel as the post-op recovery is often the hardest part.

"Wendy loves to sing and more-so, to tell stories ... especially to her grandmother!" Rosemary, Wendy's mother, told us. Let's pray for a successful surgery for Wendy and lots of stories to tell her grandmother when she returns home!

Sadiya from Ethiopia on Today
Sadiya's surgery went great! She had a knock knee corrective surgery on her right leg. Here you can see Dr. Laurence and Dr. Bekalu putting in an 8-plate (called this because it looks like the number eight). This plate will help guide the bones in her right leg as they grow, slowly allowing her body to straighten itself out which is always the better option than massively invasive surgeries. Please keep Sadiya in your prayers for a speedy recovery!

Gloria from Ethiopia on Today
Gloria is excited and ready for another trip to the OR. This time it's not for a surgery, but to get one of her frames removed!!! The frame on her right leg has done what is was supposed to do and it's ready to come off! This is a huge step forward for Gloria! (also check out her mask which she made with our counseling staff last week)

Lonjezo from Malawi on Today
Lonje's smile tells us all we need to know about how her day is going! Lonje is getting so much better every day! Our CURE Malawi doctors are still keeping her for a little bit longer to keep an eye on her and see if there are any ways we can keep helping as her bones are still very fragile. Please keep praying for Lonje!

The day Zainab has been waiting for has finally arrived! Today our CURE Malawi doctors are going to take her frame off in the OR!!! It is a happy day for Zainab after having the metal frame for almost a month! (tomorrow is here one month anniversary here) Zainab's mother is so grateful for what has happened. "The love, care, and prayers that CURE Malawi showed us, I have never seen anything like it and I will never be the same. I will walk out from here at CURE going home with a happy and changed heart!" said Melina, Zainab's mother told us, joy radiating from her!

Shamsia from Niger on Yesterday
Shamsia is here and excited for surgery...sort of. "If it's going to hurt, I'm not going to like it," she told us in no uncertain terms. Fortunately nurse Yvonne was there to assure Shamsia that when our surgeon separates her fingers, she won't feel a thing.

Reyan from Ethiopia on Yesterday
After a weekend of healing up, Reyan is bored with us here at CURE Ethiopia and ready to head home. Thankfully, our doctors say he's healed up well and they agree he's ready to be discharged! Please continue praying for this little guy as he leaves us and we'll see him when he comes back for his follow up in June.

Bravel from Kenya on Yesterday
“Will you be my friend too?” Naomi, a nurse at CURE Kenya, asked Bravel after we told her that Bravel was our friend. “Yes!” Bravel responded shyly. It is exciting to see Bravel at CURE and we believe that he and his mum will go home happy when his transformation journey begins. Prayer point: Please pray for Desma who hasn’t received Jesus as her personal savior yet. Pray that she finds Jesus during her time with us at CURE Kenya!

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.
