Ismael is a 4-year-old boy and has arrived to CURE Niger with his mother Adama. She is the mother of three children of which Ismael is second born. At the age of two years old, his mother brought him to stay with his grandmother because she had a difficult pregnancy. One morning, Ismael's grandmother took him to a doughnut seller to buy some doughnuts. Unfortunately, Ismael fell into the boiling oil used to fry the doughnuts and sustained burns to his hand. After the accident, his parents gave him traditional treatment for three months. After that, his wound healed but the skin on his hand became contracted. Not long ago, Adama heard about CURE Niger from a woman whose child was treated here and she decided to bring her child too. Please join us in praying for Ismael's healing!
We saw Ismael this morning in front of the physical therapy room. He is sitting nicely on his mother's feet patiently, waiting for his turn for a massage. His health is progressing well. Please continue to pray for his total healing.
It is a great joy for us to meet Ismael again this morning in the physical therapy room. He is in a rehabilitation session for his hand. The physical therapist is massaging his fingers to help with the extension and flexion. His hand is almost completely healed! Ismael's mother thanks God for what he is doing in her child's life. Please continue to pray for his complete healing.
We are so happy to have met Ismael this morning in the physical therapy room. He came back for a little massage and a cast change! He is a really brave boy. He kept the promise he made last time of no crying during today's visit! His health is improving very well. Please continue to pray for his complete recovery!
Ismael was so happy to see us this morning! He promised not to cry any more during the bandage change. And as you can see, Ismael kept his word and showed courage! The nurse in charge told us that his health is progressing well. Please, let us continue to pray for him.
Ismael was back here at CURE Niger this morning for another bandage change. He doesn't like the bandage changes all that much, but he is a fan of our hand-crank tricycles we have for the kids to play with!
We are happy to have met Ismael in the bandage change room for his bandage change! He has been discharged and seems to be playing a lot since his bandages are really dirty! Keeping them (and the surgical wound inside them) clean is important for his healing process! The nurse in charge told us that his health is progressing well. Please continue to pray for his full recovery.
We are happy to have seen Ismael this morning, sitting on his hospital bed. As we can see, his health is progressing well. He will be discharged today and will return home with his mother. Ismael will be back at CURE Niger on December 4th for his first bandage change. Let us thank God for his health and also continue to pray for his total healing!
