Amognesh is working for a family as their house maid. When the father of the house heard about CURE, he brought her here hoping she could get an operation to correct her left foot, which is slightly bent but causes her a lot of pain. Her boss is blind, but he and his family were willing to pay for her operation if needed.
Amognesh was in grade 6 when she had to quit school. She still dreams of going back after her operation, though. Before she started working as a housemaid, she lived with her family in Gojam, which is quite a distance from Addis Ababa where our hospital is located. Her parents are farmers, and she has 1 brother and 1 sister.
CURE is the first hospital that she's ever visited even though she's lived with this condition since birth. She never had any issues with bullying because of her disability, though. It's a little bit difficult to see from photos or even when she is walking that she has any kind of deformity, but the pain that it causes her is the main thing she is excited about leaving behind.
Amognesh came back for her AFO (Ankle Foot Orthosis) measurement today, she is doing well and her foot is healing too - can you tell how happy she is from her giant smile? The AFO will be ready in a couple of weeks and we will see her then. Please keep on praying for her!
Amognesh had a dressing change yesterday and she is heading home! She will continue her recovery from there and we will see her in six weeks for another check-up. Please keep her in your prayers for a safe return back to the hospital!
Amognesh missed a couple of appointments, but we are glad she made it today to the CURE Ethiopia hospital for her revision surgery. Tomorrow she will have an operation on her left foot, it will help straighten it and walk better. Keep Amognesh in your prayers!
Amagnesh missed her appointment last week but she came in today! She was originally scheduled to have her operation today, but now it has been moved to September 22nd. We will see her on September 21st for an admission, please keep her in your prayers for a safe return back to us!
Amognesh came in for her follow-up and she is doing great, she got her supporting shoe and she will practice walking with it and we will see her in 4 months for another follow-up. Please keep her in your prayers!
