What happens after hours at CURE Zambia? This.
If you hear cheering and clapping and celebrating off in the distance, this is why. We are so excited to welcome Brant Hansen, long-time friend of CURE, to our team as our first ever Storyteller: http://cure.org/blog/2014/07/brant-hansen-i-have-a-new-job/
My daughter was helping me make the fire for supper when her dress caught on fire. I saw her screaming and came running. When we took off what was left of the skirt, we saw that her legs were badly burned… She was crying day and night, but there was nothing I could do to help. So I just cried and cried.
From CUREkids Coordinator Bryan Fay: “This is Belete. On Saturday night, I went out to eat and met a group of people volunteering with Ordinary Heroes from Nashville, TN. After learning that I worked at CURE, one of the ladies, a nurse, proceeded to tell me that she happened to meet this boy on the top of Mt. Entoto, just a couple of minutes away from our hospital. She said, ‘Bryan, is there any way we can bring this boy into the hospital? A piece of wood went through his foot and now it is swollen and infected. We can’t even feel a pulse in his foot anymore.’ Luckily, two of our doctors wanted to see him, so he came in on Monday at the end of the day. They decided to do an immediate surgery, and he is all fixed up now! There’s also no worry of him losing his foot or getting a worse infection. Praise God! He is good.”
