Clive is continuing to make progress in his recovery after having surgery to correct his knock knees. He is still in the ward at CURE Zimbabwe, but he can now walk with a walker for extended periods. Clive is in good spirits and is excited to be able to move around more freely. CURE’s comprehensive approach to care doesn’t just happen inside the operating room. Before and after surgery, we ensure children and their families have the tools they need, like walkers, to maximize healing. He is also working hard with his physical therapists to strengthen his muscles and improve his range of motion.
