“I want to become a computer engineer,” said Ibrahim and we see the light in his eyes sparkling as he shares this desire of his. He continues to laugh while his father joins in the discussion and starts sharing their story with us. Ibrahim developed knock knees condition when he was only two years old, after he previously contracted fever. He was taken to the hospital outside his village. Ibrahim received no diagnosis and he was discharged home. His knees continued to tilt inwardly during the following years while his ankles remained spaced apart. Fifteen years have passed by and no visits to any hospital, no treatments taken. According to the local tradition, it is seen as God’s will for Ibrahim to be like this. He still went to school and had friends to play with. At home, Ibrahim helps his parents running their peanuts business, he roasts and packages them in small bags ready to be sold after. Three months ago, Ibrahim heard on the radio that a CURE mobile clinic was passing by through their village. Together with his family went for a consultation. Our doctors advised them to come to CURE Niger hospital and now here they are!
“Everything you need you will find at CURE,“ says Ibrahim. He was impressed by the way he was welcomed, by the professional manner of our doctors when he was consulted and by our nurses and spiritual team care while staying in the ward.
After Ibrahim gets the surgery he will continue to help his father run his business, save some money and buy a computer. What determination and drive he has!
Ibrahim and his father didn’t return to their village as was previously planned. Our staff decided that it would be better for them to stay around to continue his recovery with us. He is very ambitious, and he is combining his recovery time with learning a new language - Romanian. Ibrahim wrote his first Romanian sentence on his cast, ”Dumnezeu ma iubeste” (God loves me). A truth that he admitted he is experiencing here at CURE through the love and care our staff is showing to him. Please pray for Ibrahim's time here to be fruitful for his soul and body!
Ibrahim has been discharged. He will be back in a few weeks for a follow-up. He sends you his warm greetings and shouts a 'Big Thank You' to all of you who have been praying and supporting him! Please continue to pray for his safe journey home and a speedy recovery. Will see you soon Ibrahim!
This morning Ibrahim was visited by Dr. Shelley. His post-surgery pain has lessened and he feels much better today. For now, Ibrahim continues to recover in the ward. We will keep you updated! Please keep on praying for him while he continues his healing!
Ibrahim's surgery went very well! Dr. Shelley placed a rush nail into his leg to straighten it. His leg is in a cast, and Ibrahim is now resting in the ward. Please join us in praying for a smooth recovery.
Ibrahim is here with us for the first time, and he already set himself at ease. Ibrahim is waiting for his turn in the operating room, and he has no fear! Please pray for a successful surgery for Ibrahim (one of the many still to come).
