MALAWI – AGE 19
A Limb Condition
“My name is Thokozani and I am the first born child in my family of four children,” he told us with pride.
“From the day my son was born, he was all fine and without any deformity, but after about three weeks, Thokozani was reported to have a deformity on his right leg. I still do not know what caused this condition, but all we want now is to get our son help,” his father Shawa shared with us.
Thokozani and his father came to CURE after being told about our hospital by a friend who saw him struggling to walk from school. Thokozani is a schoolboy and he is in Grade 4. He has borne the brunt of jokes regarding his condition and he told us that he feels bad when other people pay attention to his deformity.
“When I heard that I will be coming to CURE, I knew I would be well! My dream of becoming a doctor is more hopeful now and I am so happy,” said Thokozani.
Thokozani and his father Shawa are so thankful and they believe that all what Thokozani needs has been found here at CURE. “Coming here at CURE for help of my son Thokozani is a great relief to all of my family but mainly, Thokozani will live a happy a life and he will have peace,” said Shawa. His father is full of hope and is positive that when they return home, his son will be well. The name “Thokozani” means Thankful. When we talked with this young man, he had a humble heart and we are happy to tell you that we’ve welcomed him into our CURE family while he seeks healing. Please join us in praying for Thokozani and his father as they are here at CURE for treatment!
