Aicha from Niger on Today
In the whole scheme of things, Aicha's surgery wasn't that big of a deal so after keeping her overnight for observation, the doctors have given her the all clear to go home! She'll be back neck week for the start of her regular bandage changes, but she can spend the rest of this week and the weekend relaxing at home!

Djibo from Niger on Today
Djibo is back! He will be getting a pin out of his leg today. He says that everything is well and he is excited to get the pin out because it feels weird when he stands. Please pray for him as he gets it removed that everything will go well!

Zeynab from Niger on Today
Zeynab was feeling energetic today. She was playing a game in art therapy that is similar to bowling and she rocked her team to glory! Almost every time she threw the ball, she would get a strike!

Habiba from Niger on Today
Today we had our weekly volunteers come to CURE Niger. They played with the kids and had some art time. Habiba was hard at work making and decorating a crown. She had some trouble cutting out the crown, but as soon as we showed her how to, she did great. She is a natural! Pray for her as she waits for her leg to heal, that she will be patient and careful.

Rabilou from Niger on Today
The cast change went well and Rabilou is doing great! So great that he has been discharged and left before we got a picture of him. He will be back soon for a follow up appointment, but until then please pray for him so that everything may go well while he is at home!

Djamila from Niger on Today
Djamila is in the ward today. She will be getting surgery today since even though the bend in her leg is fixed, her left leg is now shorter than her right. "I'm excited because I'm going to be better than I am now when I'm healed," Djamila said when we asked her if she was afraid of going into surgery. Pray for her so that everything may go well and as planned!

Okacha from Niger on Today
Okacha is back! He is here for the next part of his treatment which is a small procedure called a tenotomy to give his foot a little more flexibility! He was really quiet at first, but opened up as we showed him pictures of him when he was here the first time. Please pray for him as he goes in for surgery number two!

Djamila from Niger on Yesterday
Djamila got to make a life-sized drawing of herself! Our Art Therapist had Djamila lay down on a piece of paper and then traced her body outline. Djamila then did her hair, clothes, and everything the way she wanted. When we took a picture of her with her drawing she said that this was a fun project because the drawing was traced around her so she felt as if it was her!

Fatchima from Niger on Yesterday
Fatchima's pin removal went great yesterday! It was a very simple and quick procedure and she is no worse for the wear today. Dr Anthony checked in on her this morning and said there's no reason she can't go home so off she has gone! We'll see her again in a few weeks for another check up to see how her leg is doing now that it's pin free!

Rabilou from Niger on Yesterday
Rabilou is back. Today he came in for a cast change with some intentional pushing and pulling on his foot so it'll all be done in the OR while he's asleep. Before he went in, we had some time to talk with him and encourage him. He says everything is going well, but it is hard getting used to the cast. Pray for him that he gets used to the cast and his small procedure goes well today!

Aicha from Niger on Yesterday
Aicha received her surgery! During her procedure, the doctors had to release the palm of her hand so that her hand can be straight again. Then the doctors did a skin graph so that they could take the new skin to cover up the palm of her hand. Please be praying that the new skin heals well!

Gloria from Niger on Yesterday
Today is the day! Gloria is going into surgery to get the cage fully removed from her leg! We had a chance to deliver a few get well messages this morning as well as just chat with her a little. She says she's both excited and nervous about the removal today. Excited that she's finally getting the cage off, but nervous because she remembers the pain when she got her last cage off. She'll obviously be asleep during the removal, but there's always a little pain in the recovery process which is never fun. Please celebrate with us about Gloria's progress and please continue praying for complication free next steps!

Fatchima from Niger on 2 days ago
Fatchima is here today. She is in the ward getting ready to go to surgery and get a pin removed from her leg. She wanted to cry when the doctor came to see her, but then she realized that he was not going to do anything at the moment. Pray for her as she gets the pin removed.

Fati from Niger on 2 days ago
Fati got a bandage change today! Her leg is doing so much better. "It hurts less and less" she told us. She is happy that her leg is finally healing and it is good to see her happy. She has stopped being rough and it has helped her healing a lot. Remember her is your prayers for speedy recovery.

Mahamadou from Niger on 2 days ago
Mahamadou got a bandage change today! During the bandage change, Dr Anthony asked to step in and take a look at Mahamadou's hand. Dr Anthony said everything looks fine and that Mahamadou should really limit his movement. Today is exactly one week from when he got the operation. Mahamadou's mother said last night was the first night he slept without crying. Please remember him in your prayers so that he may be able to persevere through this time.

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.
