Rehemet from Ethiopia on Yesterday
Sweet Rehemet was having a great time playing with our Storyteller, Betty. Unfortunately it was determined that she's not fit to have her operation today. Our pediatrician would like her to have a month or two of nutritional care locally before we operate so that her body is strong and can heal better. She will be staying at a local home until then. We look forward to seeing her again real soon!

"Surafel is doing great!" says Dr. Mesfin. Surafel doesn't need his auxiliary crutches anymore and he can start walking without them. The look on his face when he heard the news says it all!

Yenewase is happy and doing well after his soft tissue release! Dr. Mesfin says his foot is doing great and asked for his AFO straps to be changed. We look forward to seeing Yenewase's continued progress and bright smile at his next follow up appointment!

Mebratu from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Mebratu came into clinic and Dr. Rick says his wound is healing well! Unfortunately, there were some tears so we thought it best not to bother him with a photo but we're hoping that we'll be able to have a happier Mebratu to show you next time. He'll still continue his antibiotics and will come back next Tuesday to see our pediatrician Dr. Yodit. Please keep praying for him!

Adem from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Adem is back at our hospital with us to practice walking! He is doing very well and is continuing to heal. He will stay here for a couple of weeks doing different physical exercises. We're looking forward to sharing his progress with you!

We went by to see how Hadija was doing this afternoon and she was glued to one of the educational tablets we pass out for the children. It's nice to see her pain free!

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.
