"My hopeful future of being like everyone else seems so unreal. My leg causes so much pain and I can hardly go to school." A future that was once bright and hopeful can get washed away just by how others treat someone with a deformity. Jafali shares with us how hard life has been having a disability.
Jafali was born well without any problem. But In 2017, Jafali's knee became swollen, deformed, and causing so much pain and discomfort upto his day. Since then, Jafali has been visiting different hospitals for help but it has not been successful. However, Jafali's parents did not give up. Soon they came across a doctor in their local hospital who told his parents about CURE. Jafali arrived at a CURE hospital in Malawi a few days after and he was immediately seen by our CURE doctors!
Many children with the same condition like Jafali drop out of school because of the challenges. Jafali has been missing school and his friends make fun of how he walks. The shame caused him to doubt whether or not he will ever do or achieve anything in the future. "When I came to CURE Malawi, I was told that my leg can be corrected and that I will walk well again!" Excited to hear that there’s something that we can do, Jafari told us that he will go back to school once he is healed!
We are so grateful for the support that you provide giving Jafali a new hope and bright expectation for his future!
Jafali goes home today! Jafali and his sister are heading home today and our CURE Malawi doctors will see him again in a few weeks. Jafali's leg will slowly get corrected by the metal plates that were placed in his knee. Please continue to pray for smooth healing!
Our CURE Malawi surgeons successfully operated on Jafali who is now back in the ward! Jafali's procedure involved two metal plates and pins that will help to correct his knock knee. Soon Jafali will be doing physical therapy exercises. Please pray for smooth healing as he recovers after surgery!
