Yemane from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Yemane came back and had his 8 plate removed! He was walking around the same day, and we were so glad to see him pain-free and strong. Our Storyteller, Mieraf, asked him how he feels now that his treatment is complete, "I'm grateful, very happy, and thankful for it all" Yemane says. What beautiful set of legs he has now. Dr. Mesfin let him know if he has any pain or reoccurrence to come back in and see us after he leaves us tomorrow, but we're confident that he's all set and has hope for a very nice homecoming!

Getahun from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Getahun needs a MRI of his spine before surgery so Dr. Rick can make sure there aren't any other issues he's battling. He will come to the capital soon to have it done and then we will schedule him for surgery! In the meantime, take a look at how Getahun walks now and follow his journey with us! https://youtu.be/GNQZUOd7SF0

Hadija from Ethiopia on 3 days ago
Hadija was all smiles today! She had an 8 plate put into her left leg last week to gradually bring her leg up straighter. In the meantime, Dr. Tim has stopped her frame adjustments in order for the plate to do its work. Her mother, Rehema, was cleaning her frame when we went by to see them this afternoon. We think Hadija likes the break she's been getting from adjustments this week!

Yeabsira from Ethiopia on Apr 16, 2018
Yeabsira is such a sweet little child! Unlike most of the kids who get casting treatment, she was playing and giggling while the physiotherapist applied the casts on her. She was delightful today and we will see her next week for another casting!

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.
