Twidai is looking smart today! He was just discharged and is on his way home. He says he is going to study hard and also bring his books with him the next time he comes. He is doing so much better and it looks like he will heal really fast!

Nejat from EthiopiaToday

Nejat is having a great time in the ward! She is just a brave little girl, she never complains of any pain even though she has a frame on her tibia. We are so happy she spent her day playing and enjoying her time in the ward!

Silaji from MalawiToday

Silaji is quite happy today! He will be having a dressing change either today or tomorrow, so you can pray that it goes well and he bounces back quickly! Earlier today we saw him skipping around and giggling!

Thom is chilling in bed today deconstructing his phone (not really, he was just cleaning the back). He got out and about a bit in a wheelchair to go watch some tv, but otherwise not much has been happening!

Mendesil from EthiopiaToday

When we first met Mendesil today he was so scared of us and didn't even want to shake our hand! But after watching us talking to his father, he came close and start playing with us. We have good feeling we will be best friends in the next couple of days!

Jesicah from KenyaToday

Yesterday, Jesicah's mom and little brother came to visit. Today, Jesicah's aunt and cousin came, and more exciting news, Jesicah gets to go home!!! We caught her outside with her family coming back from CURE's workshop. We are so thankful she is healing and walking well, and we are also thankful that she is well enough to go home! She will come to clinic for review on September 8th, and we are hoping for great progress! Thanks for your thoughts, prayers, and support for this sweet child!

Diana from MalawiToday

Meet Diana! Diana is a little girl with pretty serious burn contractures that happened when she was a little baby. In the picture, Dr. Maina is lamenting the fact that she wasn't brought in three months after it happened, instead of almost eight years when the procedure becomes more challenging. It's a lot easier to treat these conditions when the kids' hands are still little and flexible! Diana will need operations on both hands, but for now we'll start on the more severe right hand. Unfortunately, she'll lose her pinky finger, but hopefully we can bring the rest around! Please be praying for Diana as she goes in for her operation tomorrow morning!

July from MalawiToday

Since July has been admitted and is staying at the hospital, we can set him on an accelerated Ponsetti (casting) program. Instead of having casts once a week, he'll be having them twice a week, on Tuesdays and Fridays! He went in to have his casts changed today and he was NOT happy with getting his feet messed around with!

Pemphero from MalawiToday

Pemphero is waiting to go in for her wound inspection today! She doesn't look very excited at the concept... nobody enjoys having to go under anesthesia! We're loving her chitenge (African fabric) though! We'll find out tomorrow what the story is for her skin graft, hopefully it will be looking good!

Falida from MalawiToday

Falida gets to go home today! She's a bit too little to know what's going on and to be excited, but we bet she'll feel a lot more comfortable at home - and Anna is definitely happy! Falida had a wound inspection this morning, we didn't see it, but getting discharged definitely means it's looking good! Please be praying for Falida and Anna as they travel back home. She'll be coming back in about six months for the next operation, and in the meantime, she'll go to her local hospital for physiotherapy!

Thokozani from MalawiToday

Thoko is headed home today! She stopped by the physiotherapy department for a last minute checkup! She doesn't have a follow up date, just instructions to return if her ankle starts causing pain (the only situation where she'd need further operations). Please be praying that doesn't happen so she can have the best case scenario for her ankle!

Rizz Ann from the PhilippinesToday

Rizz Ann has a new arm! Dr. Jun and Nurse Ralp partnered up to cut, drill, and plate her broken bone into a straight position. Since there was a lot of damage to the bone itself, they also took a bone graft from her hip. That basically involves taking small pieces of healthy bone from a donor site and placing them into the unhealthy spot, where the healthy cells spread and heal the area. We see it all the time, but we're constantly in awe of how God created our bodies! Unfortunately, graft sites are usually pretty sore afterward, sometimes more than the actual surgery site, so please pray for sweet Rizz Ann as she recovers!

Krizylle from the PhilippinesToday

We were so proud of this fearless girl as she rolled down into the OR this morning. There were no tears and she even had a little chat with Nurse Myra before surgery started. Without further ado, Dr. Reyes made the first cut once the tourniquet kicked in. Part of her distal humerus was cut off to allow her elbow joints to fully flex and extend once it heals. We're thankful for a successful surgery! All the fears of having to go through surgery is now behind Krizylle!

Thokozani from MalawiYesterday

Thokozani has been readmitted today! Her mom was still concerned about her ankle - it makes it difficult for her to walk - but we checked and the ankle has pretty much fused on its own, and doing an operation just runs the risk of bone infection again. They are going to get a special insole made for her shoes so that can walk better though!

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.
