John from Zambia on Today
Today John was very joyous! When we arrived, he showed us a photo of himself, his sister, and his mother. He is getting a dressing change on his cast this week but unfortunately his mother was not feeling too well today, please pray for John and his mother Agness' quick recovery!

Obert from Zambia on Today
Obert has left for home! After removing the cast, Dr Moyo has recommended he goes back home, walk on the healed foot for some weeks, and come back later for the surgery on the other remaining foot. His father couldn't hide his joy seeing his boy walking on his healed foot, "I agree with what the doctor is saying - yes, the bones and muscles have to be strengthened. I am very happy with the result of his leg so far," shared Anthony, Obert's father.

Nkandu from Zambia on Today
It's show time! Nkunda proudly showed off his right leg which is now free of clubfoot! Dr Moyo said that when he goes back home, he needs walk on the newly healed foot to strengthen it for a couple of weeks. After that, it will be the appropriate time to do another operation on the left foot. With your continued prayers and support, Nkandu's right foot is clubfoot free and we will be moving to left leg soon, so we want to say thank you for your support towards Nkandu!

Fredrick from Zambia on Today
Fredrick has gone back home! We caught him with his mum a few minutes before departure and Brenda was full of praises, "I am thankful to God and the people at CURE Zambia for the work they are doing to my son!" We also took advantage of their short visit to share your get well messages and prayers with Fredrick. Luckily, there is a team going for a mobile clinic in the same town Fredrick is coming from so they have given them a lift back home. We will see him soon, please continue praying for Fredrick!

Kennedy from Malawi on Yesterday
Meet Kennedy! He's a chatty boy who had the misfortune of breaking his leg during a game of football (soccer for our American followers). Now he's at CURE and the issue will be resolved with a frame to help his bone heal straight. Please join us in praying for him as he will have surgery later this week!

Sophia from Uganda on Yesterday
Sophia and her older sister Ketrah arrived at CURE over the weekend and have settled into the hospital. Sophia is a playful but shy girl and she likes hiding behind things such as her bed sheets, her two dolls, or even Ketrah when new people come to her bed! This afternoon, Sophia went into surgery for a parietal burr hole and evacuation of an epidural hematoma. Sophia is now in the ICU where she will recover tonight. Please be praying for a swift recovery for her!

Evelyn from Malawi on Yesterday
Mphatso, another CUREkid, is leaving today, and when asked who she'll miss the most at the hospital she said, "I'll miss Evelyn." We can understand why! We asked Evelyn what she thought about Mphatso leaving and she said, "I'll miss her too because we would blow up the latex gloves like balloons and throw them to each other!"

Chimwemwe from Malawi on Yesterday
Ruth, Chimwemwe's mom says, "The baby's doing fine. His first casts though were slipping, so he needed new ones, but then the second casts were too tight and he was crying so much. They gave him medication, took off the casts and put on a third set of casts, and these are better!" We're already having difficulties with poor Chimwemwe's casts, it's definitely an art form to cast chubby legs! Please pray it will get better.

Sarah from Malawi on Yesterday
I've had a mysterious caller phoning me multiple times over the weekend but not letting the call through, and didn't have money on my phone to call back to see who it was. Today I discovered the culprit was Sarah, who asked her mother to get my number during her operation last week! "My mom told me it was your number so I wanted to make sure it was you," she says. Mystery solved! We asked Sarah about her operation and she says, "I was not afraid. The doctors were nice, they lay me on a bed and put a tube on my face to fall asleep."

Patricia from Malawi on Yesterday
Patricia and Beatrice have been discharged over the long weekend so we missed getting a goodbye photo and status update! She'll be readmitted on June 28th though so it won't take very long before we see her again!

Jenita from Malawi on Yesterday
Jenita's smiling now, although she's super shy still! It took forever for us to get a photo of her looking at the camera for her new profile photo - most of them she's looking away! Funny tried tickling her to get her attention and while smiling she said, "I'll beat you up!" so apparently tickling isn't the way to go... Auntie Lucia says, "She's happy now and no longer afraid."

Michael from Kenya on Yesterday
“This will change his life in a way,” Dr. Mailu remarked as Michael lay on the operating table, post-surgery. And it will - in a beautiful way! Although Michael has a long road of recovery ahead of him, one surgery is down and he’s already begun his healing process. In the next months, Michael will need another surgery for his other leg, and one or both feet may need to be assessed for clubfoot. Please pray that nothing will stand in the way of Michael’s healing and that as time passes, the doctors will have great wisdom in knowing what is best for Michael.

Nicole from Kenya on Yesterday
Nicole is just so cute! And she’s got this precious baby smile, but let us tell you, that smile comes when it wants to. This morning as we took Nicole’s photos, a smile would flash, but sometimes we weren’t quick enough to capture it in all its glory. We’re hopeful that someday when our precious girl grows up, she’ll smile a lot when she thinks of CURE Kenya and the healing she’s experienced through surgery! Already today she’s been to theatre and back to help bring her tiny hip back into place. Please pray that her hip will behave itself and stay in its place, giving her full reason for that smile!

Usman from Ethiopia on Yesterday
We found Usman outside playing and gnawing on his free hand! He had another dressing change today and his hand is healing well. Thank you all for your prayers!

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.
