Samuel from KenyaToday

Our little Samuel didn’t come to clinic today. We found out from his grandma that Samuel is in the hospital. The poor guy has pneumonia. His aunt was able to come to clinic and pick up his foot brace though. Purity, one of our ortho techs, showed her how to work it. Friends, please please pray for our little man. Pneumonia is not fun! And please also be praying that his brace fits even though he didn’t get to try it on at clinic. We’re hoping to see him on March 21st at the next clinic, and we’re trusting Jesus that he will be well by then!

Mathias from NigerToday

Mathias is a homebody. In a room full of games and new friends, he still just hangs out with his Mom and brother and plays with a lid ... Strange kid, but we love him!

Meet Joseph and his father Daniel, a really cool team! They love to wear beanie hats, and to make friends. We're delighted to be hosting them at CURE Kenya, and to be sharing their journey with you. Joseph is here for a spine surgery, we will keep you posted on how that goes and his other adventures at the hospital.

Abdoul is still coming in for regular dressing changes, but they are getting less frequent which means our man will soon be scott free!

Once again, if there is technology around, this guy is on it! At least he's got a friend playing on a phone close by as well!

After joining us in chapel every morning, it's back to the guest house for Souraya and her grandmother as the bonds they're making with the other caretakers and children provide the best entertainment around here!

We're pumped to have Mounkaila here with us this week in order to get his foot sorted out once and for all!

Chisomo from MalawiToday

We caught Chisomo waiting outside the plaster room after lunch! He's going to have a slab made to help him with walking on his foot while he still has his frame - he's been bending his knee instead of walking on it which is not helping with his contracture! Hopefully the physios can make something for him to use to walk with the frame!

Caroline from MalawiToday

Caroline and her grandmother Maria were enjoying some nsima and beef this afternoon! It was nice and rainy out so it was cool in the kitchen area. We still don't know if Caroline is going to have an operation or not, but we'll let you know tomorrow what the doctors have decided during ward rounds!

Our buddy Nafiou is here to finally get his burns taken care of! It's going to be a long journey to healing, but we're pumped we get to hold his hand along the way!

Thom from MalawiToday

Thom has already gone in to have the top part of his frame removed! Because it's relatively short and easy to remove part of a frame, we didn't photograph his operation, but we'll update his 'after' photo tomorrow! Please be praying for a quick recovery! Here he is waiting in bed early this morning, playing on his mom's phone!

Edina from MalawiToday

Edina's still waiting to go in for her operation! She's such a cutie and has been waving at us every time we walk by the waiting area! Today she'll be having an operation to have a rushrod (a long, straight metal rod) put through her tibia to hopefully keep the false joint from coming back. Please be praying for a quick recovery!

Pearson from MalawiToday

Pearson is looking pretty good today, he even gave us a bit of a smile! His surgery yesterday went well - Dr. Saf and Dr. Karolina opened up his leg and removed all the bits of infected bone, and then did a washout with saline to get rid of all the pus and infection. In a couple of days, they will start dressing the wound. For osteomyelitis, the wound is left open so that the infection can drain out, and because his wound is so long, it might take quite a while before it's all healed and drained enough for him to go home. Even after that, the bone will take a long time to regenerate and he may need surgeries to help it grow back - please be praying for Pearson, he has a long way to go!

Ayemero from EthiopiaToday

Ayemero is doing great! His foot is all straight now and he can start practicing his walking without his brace (supporting shoe). We will see him in six months when he returns for his follow-up.

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.
