Manirou from Niger on Today
This week's art therapy lesson was about patience and bubbles - to blow a good bubble you must be measured, steady, and attentive - too fast at first and you get soap suds exploding everywhere, too slow at the end and your bubble never develops. This is a bit like Manirou's healing process - even though it might be agonizing, recovering from his surgery requires patience and faith. During the session, Manirou paid so much attention, and when it was finally his turn to blow a bubble he was careful to hold the wand and the soap just so as to not spill - it looks like he enjoyed the fruit of his patience.

Rodgers from Zambia on Today
Patrick is going back home! During the cast change, he had a protective fiberglass layer put on his cast which will give hum freedom to play without ruining the cast. He will be coming back next month for follow up review. Please pray for their safe travel back home!

Lutangalo from Zambia on Today
The success of the Luntangano's surgery is already obvious! His cleft lip has been repaired and what is remaining is just a small wound to heal. Because he is doing so well, he has been discharged and he will be back after a bit to get his stitches out. Kindly pray that he heals properly and without any complications!

Seyni from Niger on Today
Seyni is back for another bandage change after his cleft-lip surgery more than a week ago! His twin brother and his sister decided to stay at home, so this time it's just him and his mom - he doesn't seem to mind though.

Dorcas from Zambia on Today
Joy and happiness at last! Dorcas has been discharged and she is going back home! This has made her happy for she will reconnect with the rest of her family members. We shall see her again next month when she comes for her check up and possibly a second surgery on her right leg!

Brian from Uganda on Today
Brian is continuing to rest and recover in the ward - he had some pretty high fevers yesterday, which had nurse Hudson concerned, so the medical team has been keeping a close eye on him. They're also testing his cerebrospinal fluid to see if he's been able to kick this infection, which is a key step before he can get a new shunt placed. This morning Joy was able to speak with her husband on the phone, and this afternoon she and baby Brian attended afternoon worship on the ward! In this photo, they're enjoying the beautiful singing during worship.

Malat from Uganda on Today
Malat wasn't feeling up for a picture today, but he's doing well! He's continuing to rest on the ward and get lots of sleep as his body heals from his surgery. The CURE Uganda medical team and his dad are taking great care of him. This afternoon there was a lively time of worship and singing in the ward, so even though Malat was resting, he got to hear everyone singing to Jesus... sort-of a bed-side concert! Thanks for praying for him and his dad as he continues to heal!

Yakob from Ethiopia on Today
Yakob came back here to CURE Ethiopia for his check-up and he is doing wonderful! His cast is off and the wound from his operation is healing well. We're amazed at how straight his legs look now! We will see him again in two months and see the progress he is making then. Keep on praying for this young boy!

Mibatou from Niger on Today
Earlier we asked Mibatou what she loves most about this hospital. "Friends," she answered. Pray that these friendships would help Mibatou heal and grow here at CURE Niger!

Kerima from Ethiopia on Today
Kerima is back for another check-up and she is doing well! She has been walking with the help of her crutches and Dr.Mesfin told her it is time to start walking without them! She will practice walking without any support and we will see her again in three months when she returns for another check-up!

Joy from Uganda on Today
Sometimes the best way to recover after surgery is to sleep, sleep, sleep! Baby Joy is getting wonderful care from her mom and the CURE Uganda team, and part of her healing plan definitely includes lots of naps! When the surgeons did her operation, they discovered that the defect on her back had already gotten infected, so she'll be on antibiotics for a while to make sure the infection is dealt with 100% before she goes home. She has moved back to the main children's ward with mama Maliza, and was so tired she even managed to sleep through afternoon worship on the ward. There was some pretty noisy singing and clapping going on but it didn't phase her one bit!

Sadiya from Ethiopia on Today
Sadiya is getting ready to have her operation today! She is starting off with surgery to straighten her left leg and, once it heals, the doctors will tackle her right one. Keep this sweet child in your prayers for a successful surgery followed by a speedy recovery!

"I can't see clearly because my left eye is covered, but other than that I'm doing well" Tsion explained. She is recovering well and getting ready to go home! We will see her progress in a couple of days when she returns for her check-up. Keep praying for this young woman!

Haouaou from Niger on Today
Today, Haouaou's bandage change went so fast we almost missed her. Luckily Emmanuel from our spiritual team caught her in time to exchange the secret CURE Niger handshake!

Bereket from Ethiopia on Today
Before going home, Bereket had a little training on the walking bars. He was struggling at first but after practicing for a bit, he got a hang of it and did great walking with his cast on. He will continue healing and practicing his walking with his crutches from home. We will see him again in a couple of weeks when he returns for his check-up!

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.
