Caren from Kenya on Yesterday
Today all it took was a ‘hey girl!’ to make our lady smile. When we realized her and her mama were matching, we got excited and asked for a photo. Please thank Jesus with us that although Caren was miserable after surgery, we’re catching more smiles from her AND she’s going home! We’ll see her again on March 28th.

Doreen from Malawi on Yesterday
Doreen is in for some more physical therapy and now that her bandages are off we decided it would be a good time for an after photo! It's amazing how much she's grown in the past 6 months and 1 week, but even more amazing is the change in her legs! We are so happy for her and although she's still having physiotherapy it's encouraging to see how far she's come!

Clement from Malawi on Yesterday
Clement is back! We've been seeing him two times a week now and Shadreck says his range of motion is getting a lot better! He's also gotten more confident in moving which is always a plus.

Oumarou from Niger on Yesterday
Oumarou did indeed get discharged today. Evidently, he was so excited about it that he jetted out of here before we got a chance to say goodbye. We're glad everything has gone so well for this little man and can't wait to see him in a few weeks for his follow up appointment!

Tdijani from Niger on Yesterday
God answers prayers! Tdijani is well enough and got discharged this morning after a brief prayer time with our spiritual department! Praise the Lord! Please keep praying with us as Tdijani continues his recovery at home and we'll see him again in a few weeks to see how he's doing!

Faith from Malawi on Yesterday
Avanell: How are you? Faith: Fine. Avanell: How was physical therapy? Faith: Fine. Avanell: Is there anything else you would like to say? Faith: No. Faith isn't being very chatty today, but she looks happy and we're sure, sooner or later, she will start asking for another deck of playing cards again.

Moujahidou from Niger on Yesterday
Bad news on the Mujahidou front, he was in earlier to get his mandatory blood test before surgery. We just need to make sure he's not sick with anything that would make a run of the mill surgery, like the one he needs, dangerous. His tests came back showing he had malaria which is rather common here, especially this time of year. We were able to get him the medication he needs and we'll see him again when he's better and reschedule his surgery!
Photo of Shantel
Shantel from Kenya on Yesterday
Shantel is doing well and we apologize for not letting you know how she was yesterday. We had a big event focused on giving the kids a happy Valentine’s day. Shantel will wait until next week to get another skin graft, but today she just has to bear with the tiny pain of a line being inserted in her leg so she can receive medication. Please continue praying for Shantel and also that God gives her mum peace. She is wondering why they have stayed this long in hospital and it's disturbing her emotionally.

Photo of Chisomo
Chisomo from Malawi on 2 days ago
Chisomo had her first cast change today and was a bit teary about it, so here's a photo while she was having fun and smiling! Every time we walk by her bed she yells "Azungu! Ndjumbule!" Azungu is the Chichewa word for a white person or foreigner, and ndjumbule means "take a photo of me"! She's so cute that we almost always oblige!

Bertha from Malawi on 2 days ago
Bertha is back! She's not particularly smiley today, but she was putting EVERYTHING in her mouth - we took one of her shoes out of her mouth and she promptly picked up the clubfoot braces and started gnawing on those! Shadrek says she's doing well and will be back May 10th for another checkup!

Sofiati from Malawi on 2 days ago
Sofi is having her surgery today! Dr. James and Dr. Maina have been operating on her all morning! They cut out the bit of bone that was bent and set it straight with a pair of rods. They needed to take a bone graft from her pelvis which will encourage the bone to heal together. The new medication we've been telling you about is to help make sure the bone graft won't be eaten away by the overactive bone cells in her tibia! Please be praying for her as she recovers from her surgery!

Tdijani from Niger on 2 days ago
Tdijani is resting in bed and is already back to his joyful and mischievous self. It's incredible how fast he bounced back after his surgery! Most kids take a few days, but not this little guy. He'll stay here overnight again tonight and we wouldn't be surprised if he got discharged tomorrow!

Oumarou from Niger on 2 days ago
Our man Oumarou is out of surgery and doing great! He doesn't claim to be in any pain and is spending the day resting up before, hopefully, getting discharged tomorrow!

Photo of Deo
Deo from Uganda on 2 days ago
“I pray that God gives me life so that I can take care of Deo,” said Prossy. While Deo was in surgery, Prossy spent some time painting in the activity room with Annet from our spiritual department.
Photo of Viola
Viola from Uganda on 3 days ago
“My baby is getting better and better.” said Namubiru. Over the last two days, Viola has been improving which has lifted the spirits of Namubiru. “The baby was not breathing well, but now removing the oxygen seems possible,” said Namubiru. Viola continues to be on her oxygen mask and, at this time, there are no plans to remove it, but she is no longer gasping for air! Viola is also more active, moving her arms and kicking her legs. Her antibiotics seem to be working today. Another CSF tap will be done and the fluid will be tested. Namubiru played with Viola, moving their balloon in front of her face and she got excited when Viola would see the balloon. Nurse Jane is taking care of Viola today which makes Namubiru happy. Jane seems to one of Namubiru's favorite nurses. Please keep Viola in your prayers, that her breathing will continue to improve.

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.
