Miten is a friendly young girl! She came to CURE Ethiopia with her sister Webareg, seeking help for her clubfoot problem. She was born with the right side of her foot bent inward, and this is her first time visiting a hospital. Her family heard about CURE from a previous patient of ours and brought Miten to us!
Miten loves school and she is a fifth grader, but children in her school and village make fun of her foot and call her names. “I always cry when they say mean things to me and most of the time I avoid playing with my friends so that they won’t make fun of me,” Miten shared. Bullying is not the only problem Miten has, she also got tired after walking long distances and sometimes it is even painful for her to walk. Thankfully she is at CURE to start her healing journey and to leave all the pain and suffering behind. Thank you for your support in her journey!
Miten is doing well and continuing her healing! She is have a new cast every two weeks and each one bends her foot just a little straighter, preparing her for her upcoming surgery. Her foot is showing great progress! Today we found her with one of our nurses Melat who was braiding Miten's hair. Please continue praying for Miten as she continues her healing!
Miten had her first cast change today and she did a wonderful job! She still has a couple of more castings to go but her foot is making good progress. She will have another cast in two weeks. Each cast slowly bends her foot a littler straighter. Until her next casting, she will continue hanging out in the ward having fun with her new friends!
Today we found Miten singing a song and having fun with our counselor Nahom and her friends! She will have her second casting in a couple of days while she continues her healing and making friends in the ward!
Miten was hanging outside and enjoying her morning. She is doing great and starting to get used to her new long leg cast. She is also learning to walk with crutches and she is doing a great job. Continue praying for her as she continues her healing!
Miten started serial casting today! The physiotherapist put on a long leg cast which covers the whole part of her leg and it will help her straighten it. She will have another casting in two weeks, until then, she will stay in the ward having fun and making friends as she continues her healing!
Miten is taking everything step by step. The first step is she will have a serial casting, which means she will have casting for a couple of weeks to straighten her foot. And after that, the second step will be an operation. Please keep this young girl in your prayers as she starts her healing journey!
