Chaltu from Ethiopia on Yesterday
At Chaltu's checkup, Dr. Tesfaye removed her bandage and we took a picture and showed it to her. She was so happy to see no contracture on her neck and so were we! It had been twelve years for her with a contracture on her neck and today was a dream come true. Her neck is healing beautifully and we will see her next week for another checkup!

Tariku is hanging in there! He was supposed to have surgery this week, but his foot still needs more casting so the plan is for him to through more rounds of serial casting. We will see him in two weeks when he returns for a new cast. Please pray for patience with the process!

Birtukan from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Birtukan is healing well! She saw Dr. Leul and everything is making good progress. The clubfoot she had is all healed, but there is a discrepancy between her legs and she needs an epiphysiodesis to help stop the growth of the right leg so that the left one can catch up with the other one. We will see her in six months when she will get a surgery date, please continue to pray for her!

Mariam from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
We finally get to see this beautiful smile today and we are so happy! Mariam went to visit her parents and she missed a couple of appointments because of it, but now she is back staying at the Alemachin House. She will return to the hospital in a couple of days to have a triple arthrodesis on her right leg and mid foot osteotomy on her left one. Please keep this sweet child in your prayers!

As usual, Nejat was happy and playful! She had her KAFO (Knee Ankle Foot Orthosis) but her bone has had difficulty regenerating, so she will need re-rodding. We will see her progress in two months when she returns for another checkup. Please keep her in your prayers!

Zenash from Ethiopia on Sep 18, 2017
Zenash is doing great! Her wrist is healing well and she can move it now! Dr.Rick told her to continue with the exercises, so that she won't have a problem moving her hand once the wound heals. For her next checkup, we are going on a mobile clinic to her home town and we will see her there. Thank you all for your support and prayers!

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.
