Maryam was waiting for her physiotherapy session this morning. Last time, she came back from the session crying because of the pain, so please pray for her! The pain is the unfortunate part of healing, and she's been such a champ through it all! Thanks for continuing to encourage her.

Gregoire first came to CURE 4 years ago and now he’s back! The surgery he needs is quite delicate, because his foot need work, but his hip is dislocated on that side. Doctors are deciding the way forward and we’ll keep you updated!

Drogine woke up in a good mood, especially after finding out that she was getting discharged! The thrill on her face was awesome! It's so good to see children go home to their loving families after a stay in the hospital. Praise GOD! Please continue praying for Drogine, because your prayers mean so much to her and all of us.

Hellen is healing well! We noticed the comfort Hellen felt as she lay on her mothers lap, getting her hair unbraided this morning. We believe that God will take away all her pain, so she can smile again. Please keep praying for her!

TodayKevin from Uganda

Kevin was discharged at the start of the weekend, because then they can be home instead of here while waiting for a radiologist to look over Kevin’s scans. We were anticipating hearing from the radiologist today, however, he has yet to call. Once Kevin’s doctors get the radiologist's opinion, they will contact Beatrice and go from there. Please pray that Kevin will get treated soon!

TodayEmmanuel from Uganda

About a month ago, Emmanuel started crying a lot, then he got a fever, so Evelyn took him to their local hospital, where they stayed for three weeks without treatment. Upon returning home, Evelyn noticed Emmanuel's head growing again, so she came back to CURE. They have been admitted and are currently resting in the ward. Evelyn is doing okay and has high spirits...please be praying for them!

TodayMac Shun Jhun from Philippines

It was a full room today when we stopped in to visit Shun Jhun! Miguela, Felicia, and Shownaline were all there. Miguela went through step by step with Shun Jhun what his surgery tomorrow will look like, and what recovery will be like, so there are no surprises. He was watching a movie in the playroom earlier, tightly holding the remote for the video game console, but he wasn’t interested in playing video games. We learned a long time ago that unless it creates a problem, we just don’t question 5 year old logic!

TodayAlma from Philippines

Alma and her parents arrived in Davao this morning, and spent the day getting comfortable at the hospital. Rebecca admits she’s nervous about the first of Alma’s surgeries tomorrow, but Alma told her “Don’t worry Mom, I’ll just sleep!” Alma’s first surgery will release her hip joints, then later, she will have her knees and ankles done. She spent the afternoon in the playroom doing one of her favorite things, drawing. She seems relaxed about tomorrow, she’s ready to start this journey!

TodayRica Mae from Philippines

Rica Mae was on the move this afternoon when we caught up with her in the playroom. She rapidly alternated between toys, not slowing down for a second. Teresita and Marilyn are a bit nervous about surgery tomorrow, but they’re looking forward to the results. Please join us in praying for Rica Mae’s surgeries tomorrow!

TodayElijah from Uganda

Farida has noticed a lot of change in the size of Elijah’s head and she is happy about it! A few days ago, he developed the flu and a cough, but thankfully it's minor and he is on treatment. Thank you for the prayers and please keep encouraging them!

Iryeon was supposed to be brought to our mobile clinic, but he didn’t show up. We called his father, and he said they didn’t have the money for transport but promised to come for the next clinic in July. Please pray that they're able to make it next month!

TodayLamah from Uganda

“Lamah is very pretty," said Fatuma. We were really excited to see her at the clinic in Kampala, and Lamah is doing really well and is very pretty indeed! Laibah, her twin, Fatuma and Shamira (Lamah’s aunt) are fine too. Lamah's ETV is working well, and we're so thankful for your prayers! Keep them coming!

TodayStella from Uganda

Stella didn’t show up for the clinic, so we called her dad Wilfred, and he said that she is “very fine”, in fact he said he believes that she is healed. He promised to bring her for review next month, so we’ll keep you all posted!

Photo of Abigail
TodayAbigail from Uganda

Abigail needs our prayers, because she has been continuously crying. She was examined by one of our doctors, who explained to her mom Natalie that the reason Abigail's head is slowly reducing in size is because of the type of shunt that she has. Her shunt only allows a little fluid out of her head, because draining the fluid too fast would be dangerous due to the small amount of brain matter she has. Natalie was taught how to measure Abigail’s head size, and we’ll see them again in a few weeks.

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.
