Ethiopia - Age 3
Sebrina made a pit stop at CURE Ethiopia today. She came two months after her plate removal surgery and went in to see Dr. Tewodros for a check-up. Sebrina's surgical wounds have all healed up! She has no limp so this means she will not be admitted for surgery anymore. Sebrina is almost at the finish line. She has been sent back home with a two-year follow-up appointment. If all goes well, she will have finished her treatment at CURE Ethiopia. Praise God! Thank you all for continually supporting Sebrina all this time. May God bring His blessings upon you!
Ethiopia - Age 14
Look at how much Takele has grown! He came for a follow-up rocking a leather jacket to let us know that he was no longer 'little'. Dr. Laurence, examined how well he's been healing over the years. Takele's condition has improved and he is walking without pain. However, he still has a mild knock-knee condition, so Dr. Laurence suggested another surgery to correct the flexibility of his ankle. We pray that the scheduled procedure brings more healing and comfort to Takele. Thank you for praying for and supporting him all these years. Your continued support makes it possible for us to see Takele's healing to the end! God bless you!
Ethiopia - Age 10
Six weeks after her femur corrective surgery, Sinide stopped by CURE Ethiopia for a check-up with Dr. Mesfin. She looked stylish in her colorful blue sweater and summer braids. Sinide had her cast removed before going in to see Dr. Mesfin. Dr. Mesfin thoroughly examined and confirmed that her right leg was healing well. This is great news because it means Sinide can now use a right-side crutch to walk on her own! She and dad Gizatu will come to see us again after six weeks. Praise God for her progress!

Haoua was sharing her story with us before she went to the surgery room. She has no fears, no hesitation. She knows she is in good hands. "I can't wait to walk normal, like any other girl of my age!" said Haoua enthusiastically. Please pray for her body and soul as she prepares herself for the surgery as well as for our doctors to do an excellent job! We entrust them in God's hands. Thank you.

Abdoulaye is a courageous and smart boy. He was playing with the Communications team before heading to the surgery room. His mother is very proud of him and she is very optimistic about his complete healing. "I trust CURE doctors to help my son!" shared Salmou confidently. Brothers and sisters, please pray for Aboudalye to have a successful surgery and our doctors to be guided by the Spirit of God. Be blessed!
