Amorth won everyone's hearts here at CURE Niger! Nobody can resist his fragile, high-pitched voice and the big smile that instantly melts your heart. He entertained our nurses in the ward for a few minutes while his mom visited a patient. Next week he will be the patient who will undergo surgery and will have tons of cuddles and smiles from our wonderful nurses! Please pray that his body will be fit for the operation ahead. Thank you!
Zakariaou is feeling great and recovering well. His mom is so happy about that. "Enjoy my new look," he says with a smile, showing us the sunglasses he received as a gift from our medical team. Very courageous, Zakariaou was attracted by the Jesus movie he watched in the ward while recovering. "I will read the books I received here to learn more about the story of Jesus," he told Biba from the spiritual team when she asked him what he would do when he will be at home. Zakariaou will return to CURE Niger for the appointment check-up in three weeks. Please accompany him with prayers and encouragement.
Djafar's surgery did not occur as anticipated due to a technical problem in the OR. His surgery will be rescheduled once our staff has everything fixed and it's safe for Djafar. Our technical team is already working on it! Thank you for your prayers and your comfort messages.
It took a little while for Rahel to recover from her procedure and get used to her external fixator (the metal frame around her left leg), but she's now in a good place. Rahel has moved back to the long-term patient ward because she no longer needs close observation. This morning, long-term ward Head Nurse Tizita came to teach her how to clean her metal frame properly. She started by giving Rahel some clean swabs soaked in a cleaning solution and instructed her to thoroughly clean her left leg and the metal pins, removing dried drainage and debris from her skin. Afterward, she used a clean swap to dry the area. Rahel has a long way to go, but we believe she will receive complete healing with God and your continued partnership. Please continue to send Get-Well Messages to encourage her on this journey!
Please join us in welcoming the little man Bright to CURE Children's Hospital of Malawi! Bright is here to receive clubfoot treatment. Ever since this boy was born, he has been unable to access care to correct his feet. Bright feels so much social discrimination growing up like this, and his future is at risk. During a CURE Malawi mobile clinic, Bright was identified and was given hope to come to CURE and have his feet corrected! Please join our team at CURE Malawi to journey together as we see Bright's feet get corrected!
