Guess what, friends of CURE Kenya! Dennis is fully healed from his knock knees after surgery at CURE Kenya early this year. His legs are straight! This comes as a gift to Dennis's mom, Loise, who had to wait nine months to witness this transformation. She said with certainty, "Now I believe that it is possible! Seeing the before and after photos of Dennis's knocked knees leaves me in awe!" Dennis still had the screws in his legs that helped correct his knock knees, so those were removed in a short surgery. Dennis said with his eyes gleaming with joy, "Now I can do anything I want after my healed condition. This is my wish being fulfilled. Thank you so much!" We extend the same gratitude to you, our special generous donors, for making yet another child's dreams come true! Thank you!
Simon recovered well in the ward following his first clubfoot surgery at CURE Kenya. After tons of bed rest, he gradually eased into physical therapy, which went pretty well. Despite the huge cast on his leg (because of the severity of his clubfoot, which had gone untreated since birth), Simon was strong and able to take a few steps along his ward aisle. "The cast looks heavy, but it isn’t. I can comfortably get a few steps with my new crutches and even wriggle my toes," Simon said while sitting up and grabbing his crutches. Then he took a few steps to show everyone! Because nothing was holding him back, his doctor discharged him to recover at home. In six weeks, Simon will return for a follow-up appointment at the mobile clinic near his home. Please pray for his continued healing. Thank you!
Two weeks after having limb lengthening surgery at CURE Kenya, Jayden was discharged to go home. At the onset of the intervention, the anticipation was that each adjustment would bring him closer to the desired outcome — a well-aligned, functional left foot that allows him to navigate the world with comfort and confidence. "So far, so good!" his mom, Jackline, exclaimed as she looked at Jayden, who was holding a crane paper origami in the air. Mr. Acay, CURE Kenya's CUREKids coordinator, made it for Jayden, who had asked for a goodbye gift! "Can't it fly?" Jayden asked as he tried to lift it up and let it drop down like a plane. Please pray for traveling mercies and a wonderful festive season as they go home. Jayden will return in the new year for a follow-up appointment. Thank you for your support!
Grace successfully underwent surgery to straighten her bowed legs at CURE Kenya! One of her friends sent her a get-well message to encourage her during this turning point in her healing journey. She said, "Grace: Our family is praying for you and for a healthy recovery. Jesus loves you and your family. May God bless you through your recovery. Jesus is coming back soon to save the world!" Grace's mom, Judy, shared the message with her when she woke up fully from her bed rest after the surgery. "She didn’t have any issue prior the surgery or after. I am so thankful that I was able to be strong for her, because as young as she is, she doesn’t know the impact of the surgery she has just got. One day I'll narrate to her all these things," Judy said. Please thank the Lord with us for this modern-day miracle!
After surgery on his knock knee at CURE Kenya, Fidelis's physical therapy was more than just a medical procedure. It was a watershed moment that signaled the beginning of a new chapter. The exercises they did were the final step in Fidelis's recovery and brought with them the hope of a life free of limitations from his previous condition. "The exercises are very demanding, and bending the knee was a bit difficult for me. Isaac (the physical therapist) has been gentle and encouraged me to just take one step at a time," Fidelis shared as he returned to his bed after first attempting the exercises. Please pray for a quick recovery for Fidelis! Thank you!
