Kelsy

Zimbabwe - Age 6
October 12, 2022

Meet Kelsy! She is a bubbly five-year-old who loves to run and play. After fracturing her right femur (thigh bone) when she was two, her right leg formed a deformity in her shin and foot while receiving treatment. She now walks on the toes of her right foot, unable to step with her foot flat on the ground. Although this hasn't held her back from being herself, she is unable to wear shoes or fully participate in activities with other kids. Now Kelsy is at CURE Zimbabwe receiving treatment for her right leg to help her walk, run, and play better! Please help us welcome her father and her into the CURE family! https://youtu.be/a_-7auC4XsM

Iphithule

Zimbabwe - Age 8
October 5, 2022

Good news alert! Iphithule has graduated from her AFOs (ankle-foot orthoses) and is officially back on her feet! We were delighted to bump into Iphithule in the physical therapy room here at CURE Zimbabwe. Her aunt was overjoyed to show us how Iphithule is walking much better! Her gait (how she walks) and her balance have improved, and so has her self-esteem. The smiles on all our faces were evident, especially Iphithule's, of how proud we all were to see her walking again. Thank you all for your valued support for Iphithule's journey, and we hope to see her again when she visits the doctor's office in December. https://youtu.be/uUyVtGjOjQg

"Yaniza is moving around much better now, and we are very grateful to God about her treatment. Thank you for all you've done for her," Mommy Grethel expressed. We were delighted to bump into Yaniza just outside the x-ray room waiting to have an x-ray done on her legs. Everything looks good and her bones have healed very well in her legs. Her mother and her are happy with how Yaniza's treatment has gone and Yaniza is enjoying being back on her feet again! Thank you all for your support in Yaniza's healing journey.

Prince

Zimbabwe - Age 1
September 16, 2022

"You would never think Prince was born with clubfoot, even people know think I'm lying that he was born with it!" Mommy Gladys exclaimed. She is very happy with the way Prince's treatment has gone. We are also so proud of Gladys who has been a dedicated caregiver, faithfully attending all Prince's appointments and following the guidance of the physiotherapy team to her very best! She looks forward to seeing him start crawling soon, and one day start walking. Thank you all for making this possible for Prince and his mom Gladys.

Pride

Zimbabwe - Age 17
September 15, 2022

"It's great to come and see the hospital function first hand, and meet the kids who are so special," Melissa (Communications at CURE UK) explained. This week, we had a few visitors at the hospital, including the team that heads the CURE UK office in London. Both Melissa and Flora got to meet Pride in the playroom during a service that was held by Selbourne Park Christian Church. Pride is back at CURE Zimbabwe for another procedure on her right leg. The doctors intend to finish straightening her right leg before moving onto the left. Help us welcome Pride back to the hospital!
