Meet Birtukan! She is a reserved but friendly 12-year-old girl who made her way to CURE Ethiopia with her mom, Adanech. She is here seeking treatment because she cannot straighten the fingers of her right hand. Please welcome her to the hospital by sendings lots of encouraging messages her way.
Meet Muhamud! He is a 15-year-old boy with a condition called spastic diplegia. Spastic diplegia (or diparesis) is a subtype of spastic cerebral palsy in which the legs are the most affected limbs. People with spastic diplegia often have a “scissor walk,” characterized by the knees turning inward/crossing. This is due to tightness in the hip and leg muscles. Please welcome him to the hospital with encouraging messages! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yqaS--UqskA
