Mercy from Zambia on 3 days ago
Mercy is getting more comfortable at the hospital! She has been moving around and we see her spending time with the other kids in the ward. Her younger brother Collins had his surgery today and he is recovering well. We are happy that we have been able to provide surgery to all three of them from one family! For Mercy, healing is a family experience!

Mecah is on course with her recovery and she now able to stand! She's not able to walk currently because of the cast which is above the knee but at least the discomfort which she was earlier complaining about has thankfully stopped! Mecah needs your prayers, prayers for patience in the healing!

George from Zambia on 3 days ago
George was lost in play in our playroom today! The wide variety in types of games and toys in our playroom really keep our kids busy, it's like everyday there is fresh activity to do for them and this is super fun! It helps the healing process go faster! Please be praying for George!

Evance from Malawi on 3 days ago
Evance had his frames removed today! We walked along side him from beginning to end throughout the process as his heart raced from being so nervous for surgery and the removal. He told us we could take the photo from his perspective and write his status today, since he would be tired after surgery. Dr. James told us he would later need a tendon transfer and Dr. Karolina said it would take time for the balls on the side of his feet to heal and shift as he builds padding for his new heal. Please keep Evance in your prayers while he is resting and recovering and that he isn't in too much pain when he wakes up!

Chifuniro from Malawi on 3 days ago
"Chifuniro has one of the brightest smiles in the hospital," one of the guardians told us while pointing across the ward at Chifuniro laughing. Chifuniro's smile really does beam! He has been in a lot of pain with his frame turns, but is staying strong and gets excited every time he gets his picture taken. He loves seeing what he looks like in detail. It's hard to get Chifuniro to smile from a distance, so we usually have to go up to him and pull up his cheeks to get his smile started so he can finish it and make it last. It's the cutest thing! Today he took some silly photos and wanted to say, "thank you for praying for me!" He is continuing his physio and his frame turns and is hopeful to have his frames removed soon. Thanks for loving on, supporting and praying for Chifuniro during his time here at CURE Malawi!

Chifundo from Malawi on 3 days ago
Guess who's back and in for surgery! Superman! Chifundo is back in the hospital and was first into the operating room for surgery this morning. He had an osteotomy, where Dr. James and Dr. Karolina released the nerve in Chifundo's right leg and drilled at his right bone to straighten his leg. Chifundo was quiet when he first came in, but he was also a little nervous for surgery, so his fun personality will be back in no time! He is out of the operating room resting now and we laughed with his mom when we discovered he is a violent sleeper, practically hanging off all sides of his bed. He will most likely be in a lot of pain when he wakes up, as it was an intense surgery, so please keep Chifundo in your prayers as he recovers!

Elliot from Malawi on 3 days ago
Elliot is on crutches! He seems to be handling this whole process with so much strength and grace. We walked with him to physio today, dancing our way up the ramp, and during his pinsite care, the physio team told us things are going well! He isn't having much pain and is enjoying his time in the hospital. Thanks for praying for Elliot as he continues healing here with us at CURE Malawi!

Jesse from Kenya on 3 days ago
Jesse not only got to practice physio today, but also a new handshake taught to him by Joel, CURE Niger’s Storyteller who is visiting CURE Kenya! Jesse is doing so well, his limp is getting smaller, and he needs to come back in a month for another physio appointment. Please be praying that when he comes back in a month, the limp will have become so small that it will have disappeared!

Yeabsera was suppose to go into the operating room today but the OR was so busy, she couldn't have her frame adjustment. She will keep on with her healing and will have her frame adjustment in a couple of days! Please keep her in your prayers!

Besufekad keeps getting bigger every time we see him! He no longer needs his mother Habtam's support to walk, he is walking all by himself and is doing wonderful! His foot is healing well and the doctor says that everything looks good. We will see him again in two months for another check-up!

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.
