Farida | Brittle Bone Disease

Before Surgery

Farida was one of three sisters born with brittle bone disease, which caused their bones to bend and frequently break. It kept them isolated from their community and unable to walk.

After Surgery

At CURE, all three sisters received many surgeries and learned about God’s great love for them. Today, they are walking and transformed from the inside out!
