Rafiou

Niger - Age 3
November 25, 2021

Rafiou went to the OR for the second time. Soon after he was sedated, the medical team moved and cut off Rafiou's melted skin that was stopping him from fully extending his arm. It was a successful operation and the little boy was back in the ward before he knew it. He was happy to see his mother and his little brother waiting for him. Rafiou took a good nap and enjoyed a nice meal afterwards to celebrate another milestone in his recovery journey! We are more than confident that by tomorrow he will be buzzing around as usual. No one and nothing can't stop this "duracell" boy from being on the move. Thank you for your prayers!

Mariam

Niger - Age 15
November 25, 2021

After several hours of tedious work (Mariam's surgery took three hours), Dr. Uli and Dr. Shelley came out successful! They performed a procedure known as an osteotomy. The surgery involved cutting and realigning the tibia (the bone under her knee). After the procedure, they placed k wires to help hold the bone together. Furthermore, a cast was put on her leg to support it while she recovers. Mariam's uncle was relieved to finally see her in the ward and he thanks God and everyone who made her surgery possible! God bless you!

Joy

Kenya - Age 3
November 25, 2021

Most cartoons are designed in a way to teach children important moral values. Values like empathy, non-violence, patience and gratitude help children understand how to interact with others. From watching cartoons on her cousin Maureen's phone, Joy has been able to communicate better while in recovery, especially whenever she feels pain. Her facial expressions and moods are easily identifiable and comparative to the ones expressed in the cartoons. She is able to sing and giggle when she's happy, and pouts or loses the spark in her eyes when she's not feeling okay. Through these instances, Maureen is able to attend to Joy much easier. We are glad that to see Joy faring on well as she recovers, and is able to go home.
