“Mary will be okay, I see change in her. She can play a little,” said Alex. “This is nice, life is back, things are not like they were. Getting better - not so bad but still sick, but 50/50 at least. Today we will continue antibiotics, physiotherapy, and she is on anticonvulsants,” said clinical officer Esther. Esther has been encouraging Alex to do more exercises with Mary and to take her outside into the fresh air and sunshine. Mary still has ten days of antibiotics, a plan hasn’t been made yet for what will happen after that. Please be praying for Mary to continue to improve.

Mahamadou from Niger on Yesterday
It's the day after his surgery and Mahamadou is spending it resting up in bed and focusing on getting better. Due to it being such a big surgery on his hand, his whole arm is in a bandage and he's been instructed to keep it elevated for the time being. Will you be praying for him that he moves past the painful part of healing fast and he stays diligent in keeping his arm elevated?

Day 1 post surgery and Oussama says he has a little pain, but it's not too bad. His personality is a little muted and his smile isn't as big, but we're sure he'll be back to himself in no time!

Rose is slowly stabilizing post-op! Today her mother was among the parents and guardians that received a Bible donation in different local languages from our spiritual department. This will go a long way in helping her and the other parents and guardians to have a deeper understanding of the word of God!

Martha from Kenya on 2 days ago
Martha came for physiotherapy today. Rosemary told Amos, the physiotherapist, that Martha complained of pain during physio sessions back where she stays. Amos figured that it was being done in a more aggressive way and this would cause Martha to feel a lot of pain. Amos went ahead to show Rosemary the proper way to do it and Martha was even smiling the whole time because she didn’t feel any pain. We are going to see Martha again in a month and we are so happy that she is now walking, sometimes even without her crutch!

Wubrist from Ethiopia on 2 days ago
Wubrist wanted a picture with her nurse Hanna before going to the operating room today! We're thankful for our amazing co-workers that take the extra time to make our kids feel loved! Today she is having an operation on her knee to help her straighten it. Because of the swelling, it has made walking difficult for her but once she heals from this surgery, she will have a straight leg and more mobility!

Okello from Uganda on 2 days ago
This morning Dr. Peter told Zipporah that Okello will have surgery Monday or Tuesday which she is feeling okay about. Okello has been jolly as usual all morning as he continues to make friends in the ward. He also got to play with Dr. Kung during the ward rounds. Yesterday there was a guest speaker who shared about her child who has hydrocephalus and it was an encouragement to Zipporah on how to take good care of her child. Please be praying for Okello to have a successful surgery next week!

Abdul from Uganda on 2 days ago
“I just realized a few days back that her head had increased and some people who came to my house told me the same. It wasn’t easy for me to notice the increase because her hair was grown,” Esther said. The doctors were planning to operate on Abdul today, but her mother breastfed her, so the surgery was postponed to tomorrow. Esther says that Abdul no longer responds nor makes sounds when she speaks to her and that is worrying her. She also cannot move her head anymore. “I have researched a lot about hydrocephalus through the internet, I even visited cure.org and read about children who had hydrocephalus but are now doing well so I hope that Abdul responds positively to the surgery," Esther says. Please keep praying for Abdul and Esther.

Why I Support CURE

Chris is excited to join CURE for the same reason most of us are part of it: Seeing the Kingdom of God at work in kids lives. "Kids right now who can't walk, they're being carried, who can't go outside because their faces look different… they get to be kids again. Because of CURE… because of you and me and everyone else involved, kids will be kids again, and be able to walk and run.
