Meet Hassana! She has an instant best friend and twin sister Ousseinia. They are both born with congenital syndactyly on both hands, which means that Hassana's fingers––the little finger, the ring finger and the middle fingers––are joined together. When the twins were born, their parents were very happy to have them. "Even when they noticed the deformity, they learned to thank God for for their babies as they are and trust him for their lives" shares Maria, the twins' grandmother.
Hassana's parents learned about CURE through a relative. Thankful for the financial contributions of friends and relatives, Hassana's parents were able to pay transportation for Hassana and her twin sister to CURE Niger. They are accompanied by their grandmother, Maria.
Maria says that she was very pleased with the warm welcome she received from our hospital when she first arrived. She prays that her granddaughters' operation will be a success.
While she patiently waits for her wound to heal completely, Hassana makes the best of each moment she can share with her friends at the guesthouse! Please keep Hassana in your prayers for rapid healing!
Hassana bursts out laughing because she finds it very amusing that the patient next to her is very dedicated to singing lullabies to her teddy bear! Hassana got her bandage changed yesterday and, this time, the nurses differentiated the bandage color of Hassana from the one Ousseina has! Please, keep Hassana in your prayers!
Hassana and her twin sister adore to get their pictures taken especially when they see us in the ward. They're so silly and try to confuse us with their names. But we are glad to have them around bringing joy to other kids in the guesthouse!
Hassana practiced her crafting skills. Aunty Salamatou from the spiritual department asked the group of Hassana to create any object that they remember from their villages using clay. Hassana molded a cow to remember the cows she used to ride in the village when they go to the farm. She also made kitchen stools. Hassana was so happy to play with friends using clay!
When we met Hassana this morning, we were pretty amazed to see her in good shape. She has recovered well from her surgery and is ready to go back to the guest house where she will continue her healing.
After long hours of surgery, Hassana is sleeping soundly in the recovery room under the supervision of our PACU nurses. The surgery went well and Hassana will soon go back to the ward to continue her recovery. Please pray for Hassana's rapid healing!
