“She doesn’t like her arm and always says it's itchy and asks why she can’t move it like the other children”. says Hanna, Shalom’s mother. Hanna continues, “It’s always painful seeing her like this but now I’m glad I have found a place that will help me heal my daughter”.
Shalom has come to the CURE Ethiopia with her mother Hanna seeking help for her burn contracture. Hanna remembers the day the burns happened. “I stepped outside of the house for a second after putting her to bed and her older sister was next to her playing. I returned to find her bed on fire!” It turns out Shalom's sister had accidentally knocked over the lantern and it fell onto Shalon's bed, setting the whole thing on fire. Shalom was just a six months old at the time. Hanna took Shalom to a hospital right away and she had a treatment there but her arm still healed in a way where the melted skin prevents her from fully straightening her arm.
Hanna takes care of the family by working as a daily laborer. “Shalom is a happy and active little girl and I look forward to the day that she will be healed and start school without any problems”. Hanna tells us with a smile on her face. Please join us in welcoming the family while they start their healing journey!
For the first time today, Shalom was able to move her hand and see it straight! Both Shalom and her mom Hanna was so happy to see it moving without the burn contracture. She got another bandage on and went back home. We will see her again next week when she returns for another check-up!
We found little Shalom on her mother's back ready to go home! Her elbow is healing pretty well and she will continue her recovery from home! We will see her again next week when she returns for her check-up. Please keep on praying for her!
As usual, Shalom was in bed playing. She is doing well and continuing her healing! Today she is going to the operation room to have a dressing change and the doctors will check how her elbow is progressing. Please be praying!
Little Shalom loves seeing her picture and invited her mom Hanna to see it too. She is doing wonderful and enjoying her stay in the ward. She spent most of her day with her mother playing and having fun. Keep on praying for this sweet little girl!
Take a little look into Shalom's surgery! Dr.Tesfaye did a wonderful job releasing the burn contracture she had on her left elbow! She is doing well and recovering in the ward. Please keep on praying for this little girl!
“When people see her, most of the time they feel sorry for her and I could not do anything about that and it hurt so much”. Hanna, Shalom’s mother, shared with us. Shalom is staring her healing journey with an operation to release the burns restricting her left elbow. Please keep this sweet child in your prayers!
