CURE Kenya Article

Orthopedics This Week has just published an article about our hospital in Kenya in regard to a generous donation from RTI Biologics .  You can read it here.

The AIC-CURE Children’s Hospital of Kenya was CURE’s very first hospital. It treats and cures thousands of children every year from all over Kenya (and beyond) with orthopedic disabilities.

Here are a couple of these children.

Oscar

Sixteen-year-old Oscar suffered from a badly bent left leg.  Not only was walking difficult, his schoolmates laughed at him.

His life changed after a CURE mobile clinic came to his hometown.  He soon had surgery and is on his way to recovery.

Bakita and her mom at the CURE Kenya hospital

Bakita, a precious 4-year-old girl, had “knock knees.”  Her mother brought her to the Kenya hospital in hopes of a cure…and she found one.

Children like these come to CURE Kenya every day.  Their stories constantly remind us of why CURE exists:  to transform lives through physical and spiritual healing.
