Nuhamin is an active little girl! She came to CURE Ethiopia with her mother Meskerem, seeking help for the tissue problem she has on the lower part of her lip. She has a condition called hemangioma, which is a bright red birthmark. When Nuhamin was born, the swelling was so little but after a couple of days, it started to get bigger. The family looked for help and found a hospital and little Nuhamin started taking medication for it but the swelling didn’t go away, instead it has gotten bigger. The family knew about CURE from a previous patient of ours and brought little Nuhamin here.
“Where ever we go, some people stare at her, others are scared and a lot of them ask us different questions,” Nuhamun’s mother, Meskerem shared. Thankfully, little Nuhamin is here in the hospital and having the treatment at an early age will save her from bullying and discrimination in her future. Please join us in welcoming the family while they start Nuhamin’s healing journey!
Nuhamin came back for her first check-up after surgery and she is doing wonderful! Her surgery wound is healing up nicely and Dr. Tesfaye advised her mom, Meskerem, to massage it so that it wont leave a big surgery scar. We will see Nuhamin again in a couple of months when she returns for her check-up!
Today we found Nuhamin running around the ward and having fun! She is doing wonderful and it is time for her to head back home. She will continue her healing from there and we will see her again in a couple of days when she returns for another check-up!
Nuhamin's surgery went great! Dr. Tesfaye did a beautiful job removing all the swelling she had on the lower part of her lip. She is back in the ward resting and continuing her healing. Please keep on praying for her!
Meet Nuhamin! She is at CURE Ethiopia getting ready for her surgery. Today she wanted to eat something before going to the OR and there was a little fight with her mom not letting her eat anything, but when she saw the camera, she stoped her fight and smiled big for a photo! Please keep this young one in your prayers!
