Thelma from Zambia on 2 days ago
Our sweet girl is responding well to physical therapy! Though she still not able walk without assistance, she is able to stand on her own. Shoes have been prescribed which will be used to maintain the correct position of the foot and they are likely to be delivered early next week. From the looks of things, Thelma has not forgotten the routine here -when it's time to go to the playroom she asks her father to take her! Please continue praying for more strength during physical therapy for our girl!

He is responding well to this treatment, and we are going to keep him in the hospital until next week for dressing changes and observation.

Thelma from Zambia on Apr 16, 2019
Our sweet girl Thelma is back! Not only does she look more beautiful because of new hair do, her legs are also looking stronger with healing! When she went home she had above knee casts which have now been removed, there is no need in putting them on again because both feet have been corrected and healed. Thelma has started physical therapy to learn how to walk with her new corrected legs! She is still experiencing some discomfort during the sessions due to the a period she spent in the casts, muscle weakness and the new position of her feet, but our physiotherapist Roxanne was on hand to make sure that today's session runs as smooth as possible for Thelma! She is already making progress, please be praying that she would continue to gain more strength during her physical therapy sessions in the next few days!

Jonas got himself discharged and he has left for home! He will be back in a couple of weeks for the follow up review and, depending on how his leg heals, that is when his cast can be removed. Just look at the excitement in his smile to be heading home! Please be praying for his speedy healing and we shall see him soon.

Loveness from Zambia on Apr 03, 2019
Loveness will be leaving the hospital today, but not quite heading home. She is going to be staying at a relative's place here in Lusaka while she waits for her next follow up appointment. This is the good for Loveness as it means she doesn't have to make the looong trip home and then back to the hospital when it's follow up time. As they were waiting for the relative to come pick them up, she found herself in the group of mothers and CUREkids on our lawn playing and doing crafts with the team from HOPE 587!

Jonas from Zambia on Apr 02, 2019
Jonas is doing fine post-op. He had an x-ray to see if the desired correction was achieved during surgery and, thankfully, everything looks good. We will keep him for a day or so for observation and then he should be discharged! Please be praying for the speedy healing of Jonas!

Loveness from Zambia on Apr 02, 2019
Our girl is happy today because, during her dressing change, there was minimal repositioning that needed to happen so there was minimal discomfort! The other reason she is happy is because she has been giving TWO dolls by our visitors from HOPE587! She wears one one her back like all the Zambian moms carry their babies and she carries the other in her arms. Loveness is scheduled to be discharged tomorrow and she should be back in a couple weeks for a follow up appointment! Thank you for your ongoing prayers for her and please continue!

George from Zambia on Apr 02, 2019
Guess who is back? It's George! He came through for his follow up visit and it's all smiles and good news. He got his cast off his right leg and it looks great! Since he has been in a cast for a couple of weeks, he still needs to get used to walking again. This young man has fully healed and there is no reason he needs to stick around so he has gone home a completely different person! He is now a disability free young man! This wouldn't have been possible without your prayers and a support. We thank you for partnering with us!

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.
