Planning for the future
Eshe is a bright and beautiful 13-year-old girl, who lives with her mom Eliza, her aunt, and two siblings.
Eshe came to CURE Malawi with a chronic bone infection in her left leg, which led to a deformity that needed to be corrected with surgery and a frame. Due to that injury, Eliza hired a motorbike, which she uses to take Aisha to and from school every day.
When CURE’s Spiritual Team visited Eshe’s house in Malawi to follow up with her post surgery, she arrived on a motorbike after school looking energetic and happy!
“Things have changed so much after my operation at CURE! I am able to go to school, play with my friends, and I am able to help my mother with some chores around the house,” Eshe said.
Her mother Eliza also encourages her not to give up on what she believes. She said that she is glad that Eshe’s condition has not affected her psychologically.
“There was a time when people in this community used to say bad things to discourage my daughter, but I told her to ignore them. She is a lovely and very humble child and I know that there are more things that God has planned for her to achieve in life,” said Eliza.
Eshe was inspired by Dr. Linda Chokotho, a female orthopaedic surgeon at CURE Malawi, and one of the few female orthopaedic surgeons in the entire country. She said she is studying hard so that one day she can become an orthopaedic surgeon and help other children who have bone conditions like hers.
As for Eliza, she is so appreciative of what CURE has done in the life of her daughter. She assured us that she will be spreading the good word about CURE. She prays the love that is in her family continues, and that she would also prosper in her farming business in order to fully support her daughter.
