Habiba from Niger on Today
Habiba made it back for her follow up appointment today! She's walking without her walker and loving her freedom. The doctors say she's doing well and, after today's appointment, they've scheduled her for another follow-up in January so our little lady is on her way once again!

Adam from Uganda on Today
“My mother is doing a great job taking care of the children back at home,” Susan says. She called home and was told that everything is fine although she misses being with her family. The rains have come in her district, so she says her family is cultivating food. Susan was told by the doctors that after Adam finishes his dose of antibiotics he will be discharged but will need another surgery for hydrocephalus at a later date and Susan hopes that it won’t be long from now. This morning she spent some time in prayer with Immaculate from our Spiritual Center. Please continue to remember Adam in your prayers as well as he finishes his antibiotics.

Yitagesu from Ethiopia on Today
Volleyball time! A few of our kids were on the floor playing volleyball and having fun! Best buddies Yitagesu and Hadush were among them keeping the ball in the air. Yitagesu is having his frame turns and cleaning everyday and his ankle is healing!

Massaoudou from Niger on Today
Massaoudou just had his surgery! The doctors amputated his sixth finger on each hand. They used the cauterizer to easily cut through the tissue and keep bleeding to a minimum. A cauterizer is the pen-like tool you can see them using in the photo. It uses electricity to separate tissue and seal off any parts of the body that may cause a lot of bleeding. Please pray for Massaoudou as he begins the healing process and that everything continues going well!

Rickson from Uganda on Yesterday
“I’m feeling good, I’m feeling happy,” said Annette. This morning they are going home, both Annette and Rickson are very happy as they have been missing their family at home. Even though it was hard for Annette to be away from her other children, she has had a positive experience at CURE Uganda. “Every time there are prayers and words of encouragement they give you hope,” said Annette. Prior to leaving, Winnie from the Spiritual Center came by their bed to wish them well and prayed for them. Rickson's doctors have been encouraging Annette to do more physical therapy with Rickson to get him stronger and more mobile. Please be praying for Rickson that he will not need any more surgeries and for him to become physically stronger.

Ariel from the Philippines on Yesterday
Ariel is back and showed us that he did his homework exercises at home! He got onto the platform really quickly and showed us what he is now able to do. He's still quiet but gave us unlimited hi-fives to interact with us. This brave boy slowly bounced back to his feet and has learned to walk using the right muscles in therapy! We pray that his muscles and bones continue to get stronger every day!

Jenalyn from the Philippines on Yesterday
“She’s been through so much,” Dr. Shelley said as she gave a teary-eyed Jenalyn a sympathetic hug. Jenalyn wasn’t due to return until November, but Gemma brought her in because “her cast smells”. It was a smart decision, Jenalyn was having a reaction to her sutures, causing an infection. We removed the sutures, gave her in a fresh cast and put her on antibiotics, and now she’s back on the road to healing. We extended her follow up date by a week so she can get some extra healing time in, but Dr. Jun encouraged her to start trying to walk without her crutch soon, please pray for encouragement as she tackles this next phase in healing!

Dustin from the Philippines on Yesterday
We hardly recognized this tall, grown up boy! Dustin came in for his one year checkup, and no grumpy faces today, everything is all good! He has seriously grown a ton, and showed off for us how well he can stand up straight now. He still has a plate in his femur, and that will need to come out in the near future, so we’ll see him back soon to get that taken care of. Sometimes, when a patient lives far away or is unable to return for their final checkup, we don’t get to see the final results of healing, but this is what it looks like, thanks to all of you who pray and give!

Princess from the Philippines on Yesterday
Princess didn’t waste any time getting comfortable in her favorite spot in the hospital, curled up with Dr. Jun! She’s seeing progress slowly but surely, but since it’s been confirmed that she has Rickets, her femurs have begun to bow slightly, while her lower legs have healed. She needs to continue to take her vitamins, and hopefully as she grows and her bones strengthen, she will straighten out. We’ll keep monitoring her over the next several months, and we’ll be praying for God’s miraculous healing!

Jhezzel from the Philippines on Yesterday
More smiles from this beauty! Jhezzel spent a ton of time coloring in the playroom today. After a while, she was ready to go back and crawl back into bed, telling us that her legs hurt. We were impressed at how long she managed to be out and about! Also, a fun fact! We found out Jhezzel’s secret for her perfect, silky smooth hair. Ramon is a hairdresser, and he does all of her haircare! She's getting the royal treatment all around!

Christine from Zambia on Yesterday
Christine went for her dressing change today! The beauty about dressing changes is that they allow us to view how how much progress has been made toward healing and so far, the correction for our girl is good! Her mother is looking after two kids in the hospital at the same time, this is not an easy undertaking please be praying for her and the kids!

Patrick from Zambia on Yesterday
Patrick went for a dressing change today, as he was passing by near our desk, we caught up with him and thought it was the perfect time to share with him your get well messages! He is thankful for the encouragement. He said, "Tell them to continue praying for me, I appreciate!"

Rose from Zambia on Yesterday

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.
