Brian from Uganda on Today
Brian had surgery this afternoon and everything went well! Because he had pus in his brain due to an infection, the neurosurgeons performed an irrigation procedure. This is where they wash out the inside of the baby's brain with clean fluid, in this case to remove the infection. Brian recovered in the CURE Uganda post-anesthesia care unit (PACU) under the watchful care of our amazing PACU nurses and then was transferred to the ICU where he'll spend the evening. Our ICU has a room full of bunkbeds right next door so mamas can be close to their babies and feed and watch over them!

Immaculate from Uganda on Today
Immaculate had surgery this afternoon - CURE Neurosurgeon Dr. Onen and visiting neurosurgeon Dr. Frank Boakye from Ghana performed an irrigation on Immaculate, which means they washed out the inside of her brain with clean fluid that will help to remove blood and infection. She will most likely need another procedure at another date, but this is a good start! We checked on her as she was recovering in the ICU and she was all smiles - despite having the hiccups!! She is doing well, and we thank you for your prayers!

Silas from Kenya on Today
Sometimes our physical therapists visit our patients even before surgery. For Silas, this was the case. Amos came to assess him and come up with a plan of attack. Right now Silas uses a stick in order to walk and Amos let him know that he'll be upgraded to a walker after surgery! We’re looking forward to seeing Silas' progress in the coming weeks and months!

Livingstone from Kenya on Today
Livingstone loves life. He loves to dance. He loves to play. He loves to make his not-so-little little voice heard. And he apparently loves making friends like Ruth who works in our warehouse. Being here at CURE Kenya is opening up a whole new world of friends for this little man!

Jacquireen came in for her follow up appointment this morning and was admitted into the hospital. After reviewing Jacquireen's x-ray, Dr. Flavia found an infection in Jacquireen's left leg.

Please pray for Jacquireen and that this infection is an easy battle to win!

Esther from Malawi on Today
Our sweet friend Esther is back in the hospital! Her face lit up when the doctors remembered who she was. Esther is having her cast taken off today and is being sent for an x-ray. The doctors have also scheduled her to go to the OR tomorrow for the next step on her healing journey! Please keep Esther in your prayers as she prepares for surgery!

Jenifer from Malawi on Today
Our doctors took Jenifer into the OR today to check her wound. She was all smiles going in, but is a little groggy from the sleep medicine now. Her would check was supposed to be tomorrow, but it got bumped up and she rolled with the changes flawlessly! Please continue praying and wishing her the best healing!

Enifa from Malawi on Today
We had a little chat with Enifa today and she was telling us that even though she is here with her granny, she still really misses her mom. She also told she feels pretty good, but she does have a little pain in her leg. Enifa has been a super strong young woman and we know she will be on her feet soon! Please continue to remember her in your prayers, both for her mom and for her healing.

Manuel from Malawi on Today
"Seeing my son being able to use his hands and manage to play and eat, it is the biggest jot my heart has felt." We are so happy to see Emmanuel being able to use his hands! His mother tells us how happy she is because of what CURE Malawi is doing for her son. "I will always remember CURE and I will remind my son Emmanuel so he always remembers as well!"

Thom from Malawi on Today
Thom is back! Thom was home for nearly six months and we had a great catch-up chat with him. "My grades have improved so much and I can almost do everything now. I could not walk to school each day of the week before coming to CURE Malawi, but now I attend to all my classes. My life has changed because I came to CURE and I was helped," Thom is going back into the OR today to have the plates that were installed in his leg removed as they’ve done their job! Please be praying for a quick and easy experience!

Paulla from the Philippines on Today
Paulla became cast-free today and she immediately put her feet to work in physical therapy! Her homework is to “March! March!” as she practices to walk to her “new normal.” When she read your get-well messages before she left, she knew that her healing was possible because God used people like you to provide for her treatment! She will check-in with us in a month as she is in line to receiving a brace from our orthotics shop. For now, she is back to wearing her favorite pink shoes! Thank you for being a part of Paulla’s journey!

Gabriel from the Philippines on Today
Daisy is currently “on leave” from taking Gabriel to clinic appointments because she gave birth over the weekend! Gabriel is now a big brother to a healthy baby boy who is yet to be named! Thankfully, Garbriel’s dad, Onyok, traveled into the city before she gave birth and is now working triple time to take care of Gabriel, Daisy, and the new baby. There will be a lot of transitions going on, but we pray that God continues to provide for all of their needs during this time. Today, we congratulate Gabriel for crossing off another cast change and becoming a big brother! Please pray for Gabriel and his family during this transition!

Xyrus from the Philippines on Today
While the rest of Xyrus’ buddies were at the clubfoot clinic today, Xyrus got to see a different view at the hospital as he headed down to the OR! Patient and Family Ministry Coordinator Mary Ann prayed for Xyrus and Jecelyn before they went into surgery. Xyrus had an achilles tendon lengthening, which means the tight tendon in the back of his foot was released, allowing him to place his foot flat! Soon after surgery, Xyrus went back to his temporary home at the Seeds of Dignity Care Center. Though the procedure happened quickly, we still ask for your prayers for Xyrus’ recovery!

Koubra from Niger on 3 days ago
Even though the doctors cleared out the infected tissue, the surgery has left Koubra's leg feeling a bit stiff and sore. She's using a walker to get around, but she's keeping her spirits high and her smile big. We're constantly amazed by this young woman's attitude!

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.
