“He can’t do anything with the left hand. Running is difficult, stretching his hand out is impossible. I hope to see his hand straightened fully by your doctors!” Janerika told us. We are excited for Vigilo's treatment to begin so he can go back to being able to playing and running around as kids do!

John had his second leg operated on this week. The doctors decided that it be best if he could heal both legs at the same time and not have to wait six weeks between surgeries as we had earlier communicated. John is feeling okay and is doing well. We encourage you to send him a Get Well Message to show him that you are praying for him and to encourage him through the treatment and recovery process!

Martin had a successful procedure yesterday. As you can see from the way his cast is shaped, you can already tell that the surgeons were able to achieve bringing back the hand to its correct angle. Now Martin gets to recover in the ward under observation of the nurses and will be allowed to go home when he is ready. Thank you for your prayers for him!

Joseph went through his amputation procedure later yesterday and it was successful. The surgeon was able to ensure that the remaining bone was smoothed out to make sure it doesn’t hurt him when it's time to wear a prosthetic leg. Joseph will need a lot prayers during his recovery and this is where we all come in. Please pray for complete healing, no complications with the wound, and also the emotional healing for accepting this new normal. We know that this is the best way forward for Joseph for the long term but it takes time to accept that, so we covet your prayers for him in this!
