Niger - Age 16
Ghali is ready to leave the hospital, and he is all smiling because of his operation. That's why he shares this first experience with his friend Abdoulmoumouni. "I wanted to stay until I was completely healed because it's a good place to live even though it's a hospital. We get excellent care, food, and even teaching. This was the first time I was told that God loves me very much and he has a wonderful plan for me. I will never forget this sentence," shares Ghali with a smile. Our friend Ghali is going to rest at home, but he will come back next week for a doctor's check-up. You can send him words of encouragement through the get-well messages. Thank you!
Niger - Age 18
"Will they remove the fixator before I leave?" Abdoulmoumouni asked Dr. Issa, who explained that the fixator will have to remain on Abdoulmoumouni's leg until his bone strengthens enough to support itself. "I am pleased to be well treated here, especially the attention doctors and nurses give to patients. I enjoy it, and it gives me more hope," Abdoulmouni said. He also said many people in his village laughed at him when they heard he was coming to CURE Niger to have his legs fixed. "I know that many will be surprised when they see me, and they will know that it is possible to fix deformed legs like mine!" Please pray for his recovery as he is discharged and heading home for a bit before coming back for a follow-up appointment with the doctors. Thank you!
Niger - Age 16
We visited Sofianou just after he woke up, and he informed us that he has been discharged and was getting ready to go home. "I know my family will be even happier to see that my right leg is also operated on," says Sofianou happily. "Since our first visit to CURE Niger, people from our village have been asking for information so they can bring their children with deformed legs and other conditions. We told them about all the cases of treatment we saw in CURE. Now we will also encourage them to come and treat their children, especially since they don't have to pay anything," says Afissou, Sofianou's father. "We have always directed people who need care like Sofianou. We also want to help spread the good news," he adds. Please accompany Sofianou with prayers as he is discharged. He will return next Thursday so the doctors can check how he is recovering from his second surgery.
Kenya - Age 13
This morning, as some of the patients who had been discharged were leaving to go home, Christabel's dad was asked to find a wheelchair for a child who needed one to get to the bus. He thought it was easier to carry the child and offered to do it himself, saving time. Christabel was happy to see this and smiled to see her dad carrying one of her friends. Christabel is doing well. The doctors need to check her wound and see how it is doing. Please continue praying for her healing.
Kenya - Age 12
Hooray! Elvis is going home today! We are very happy for Elvis! His leg is doing great. There is no swelling, and the doctors are happy to let him go and be with the rest of the family at home. He will be required to come back for a doctor's review in six weeks, and we look forward to seeing him then.
