Kalid

Ethiopia - Age 7
January 27, 2023

Meet Kalid! He is here at CURE Children's Hospital of Ethiopia with his dad, Hussein, ready to begin treatment. Kalid has what is known as a windswept deformity where one knee has a valgus (knock-knee) deformity, and the other has a varus (bowed leg) deformity. The deformation causes a child to look as though he is getting blown to one side in the wind, hence the name "windswept." Please join us in welcoming him to CURE Ethiopia with encouraging get-well messages, and pray for his treatment to be safe and successful!

Grey

Philippines - Infant
January 27, 2023

Today is surgery! We caught up with Grey crying while waiting inside the OR for his turn. OR Nurse April made a balloon out of surgical gloves to keep Grey entertained. He had fun playing with the "balloon gloves"! Thanks to our resourceful CURE Philippines staff for going the extra mile to make our patients feel comfortable while at the hospital. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5aMt_lkGcic

Jay

Philippines - Infant
January 27, 2023

Meet our new friend, Jay! After several delays in the past, Jay finally underwent surgery today. Plastic Surgeon Doctor Shera worked on closing the gap in Jay's lip and considered it best to partially close his palate for now and do another surgery at a later time. The surgery went well, and Jay is recovering!

Niger - Age 15

"I remember Jesus said to pray for others. That's why I will pray for you before you travel home," Abel told his friend Nafissa, who was about to go home to rest. They then encouraged each other to never stop praying. Abel is waiting to be scheduled for another operation to straighten his legs. He is still doing physical therapy in the meantime. Please continue to encourage him. Thank you for your support!

Zalifa

Niger - Age 7
January 26, 2023

"Ku taba, ku taba, Zalifa tana tahiya" means "Clap, clap, Zalifa walks" sings Nana to her friend Zalifa, encouraging her. Zalifa has returned to CURE Niger for her follow-up appointment. The other kids have noticed she is afraid to walk, so they encourage her by clapping and singing. "They make me feel strong when I walk. From now on, I will always do my physical therapy exercises with the others," Zalifa says, smiling. Please welcome her return to CURE Niger before she sees our medical team for her check-up.
