George from Zambia on 3 days ago
George is practicing walking with his new crutches. He's not comfortable with them yet, but our physical therapy team is doing a great job helping him. Today is his second day and while he's still struggling, he is indeed getting better! Please pray for George's strength during the physical therapy!

Flyma from Zambia on 4 days ago
Flyma did not go in for surgery today. It, unfortunately, had to be rescheduled for tomorrow. While rescheduling is never Plan A, Flyma didn't mind too much as it gave him a chance to paint with Lovemore. During the few days he has stayed with us, he has become solid friends with Lovemore, despite not speaking the same language. Please pray that there will be no more surgical delays!

James from Zambia on 4 days ago
"I am happy that the problem is reducing," says James, James' father, after James the son came back from surgery. Dr. Lastroni did a procedure called a Post Medial Release on James' right leg and he'll have to have a bandage change in one week. James seemed to be unbothered with the idea of going in for surgery. He was all relaxed and jovial before he was taken to the OR. Please pray for comfort for our little man as he recovers from the surgery!

Abdeta's foot is healing and showing some great progress! His parents told our physical therapist Yordanos that they are doing the exercises he needs and everything looks great! We will see him again in three months for another check-up!

Mahamadou from Niger on Feb 14, 2019
Mahamadou got discharged this morning and he could not be happier! He is back at the guesthouse and is happy to be back with his friends. He loves it in the guest house because he has the liberty to run and play with everyone. Pray for him as he continues to heal from his surgery and will soon start back on the bandage change and wound cleaning routine to make sure he heals up as good as possible!

Djafarou has been discharged! He is doing well and we're pumped he gets to spend the weekend at home. He will be coming back for a wound cleaning and a bandage change soon so we're looking forward to seeing him again. Until then, please keep him in your prayers for speedy recovery!

Gloria from Niger on Feb 14, 2019
The healing process is still slowly moving forward. Gloria spent today helping our spiritual staff telling the story about how Paul/Saul became a Christian to the kids and then joined in on a coloring page about the story. She's also thankful that there are a few more English speakers staying at the hospital. She's done an incredible job at learning Hausa, one of the most common local languages, but it's always nice to be able to talk in a language you're comfortable in!

Noureddine from Niger on Feb 14, 2019
Noureddine is doing well recovering from his surgery yesterday, but this morning he was complaining about a really bad headache. The nurses checked him out and couldn't find anything obviously wrong so our man had some blood taken. We'll be checking that to make sure there's nothing more serious going on. Prayers would be appreciated.

Benson from Kenya on Feb 14, 2019
“He’s really trying to resist me,” Marygoretti told us as she held Benson’s foot during his physio assessment. Benson came back to be measured for his braces, but one of our orthopedic workshop guys wanted Benson to be checked because one of his little feet has actually started to travel outwards. He can start wearing a new brace on his left foot immediately, and then a couple of casts on his right foot will hopefully sort him out and an brace can be made for that foot as well. Please pray that casting is all that he needs!

Israel from Ethiopia on Feb 14, 2019
Israel is a shy little guy! He's going to need several surgeries, but we're going to start his treatment by releasing the burn contractures on his neck. Then we will move on to his arm once he's healed up from the first surgery. Please keep him in your prayers for a successful surgery and speedy recovery!

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.
