Emmanuel

Zambia - Age 16
January 31, 2023

It's a little later than Emmanuel had planned, but he's back at CURE Zambia for his next surgery! Even though he's been to surgery before, Emmanuel still joined CURE Child Mentor Lillian as she showed all the kids about to head into surgery the "OR House." It's a model of the OR that helps kids know what to expect when they go in for their surgery. When it was Emmanuel's turn, his surgery went well. The doctors performed a leg shortening procedure, and he was returned to the ward. Please send him a get-well message to encourage him as he, yet again, begins his recovery process.

Nasilele

Zambia - Age 5
January 31, 2023

After a solid weekend of recovering, it's time for Nasilele to head back to the OR. This time it's just for a cast change and foot repositioning. Even though it's her second time, Nasilele joined CURE Zambia Child Mentor Lillian as she used the "OR House" to help the kids understand what it would be like in the OR and what they could expect. It's a tool Lillian uses to relieve fear in the kids and make the surgery experience as unintimidating as possible! Nasilele's cast change and foot repositioning went well, and she's back relaxing in the ward!

Nchimunya

Zambia - Age 8
January 31, 2023

Nchimunya snuck in and out of CURE Zambia for his follow-up today! He saw the doctors and had another x-ray taken. Once we (the CURE Zambia CUREkids team) realized we had missed him, we called up his dad to check-in. "You can tell the difference between the x-ray we took and the one we took before going to O.R.," Nchimunya's father shared with us happily. Nchimunya's next follow-up is in a couple of months. Please continue to pray for and encourage Nchimunya!

Lucy and her mum have returned to CURE Kenya! Besides her knocked knees, she also had a few problem bone growths that needed to be removed. She was supposed to return a little bit ago but had to delay due to some complications. But! We are glad she is here now! Will you please pray for a successful surgery to remove these bone growths?
