YOU made this year possible

When we look back on 2015, we see so many stories of healing, and a whole lot of you. Your support makes all of these stories possible. This post is our year in review, but really, if you supported the kids we serve in prayer or with a get well message or by becoming a donor, this is your year in review, too. Thanks for an incredible 2015!


This village is probably still dancing

In January we introduced you to Maureen and her family, who might still be dancing in celebration after finding healing at CURE Malawi. One thing’s for sure: this family is impossible to forget.


#TeamTomlin

We hit the road with Chris Tomlin on the Love Ran Red Tour this spring, and hundreds of you joined us! From volunteers to concert goers to those who joined #TeamTomlin, we all partnered together to help kids dance.


Well… there were 999 other heroes…

1000CureHeroes

We were pretty excited when we realized 1,000 people had decided to become CURE Heroes and bring healing to a new child in a CURE hospital each month. But since Brant wrote that blog post to the other 999 CURE Heroes in March, another 1,000 heroes have joined the ranks, bringing our total number of heroes to more than 2,100. You guys are incredible.


The Tebow CURE Hospital is OPEN!

Getting to heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God in a new part of the world? Yep, we’re still pretty excited about celebrating the grand opening of the Tebow CURE Hospital in the Philippines.


People to celebrate

In May we celebrated moms and nurses and an incredible young lady named Bethany, who is love personified. We can’t narrow down our selections here, so you’ll just have to go back and read them all!


We are rewriting the story

At one time, being born with clubfoot in India meant a lifetime of pain and exclusion. Today, thanks to your support, we’re rewriting that story.


Ending the wait

So many of the kids and families we meet have been waiting for healing their whole lives. Together, we get to end the wait.


When “back to school” means something more

For the kids we serve, it’s not about getting on the bus with a new backpack and freshly-sharpened pencils. To them, getting to go back to school means something so much more.


Where else would you expect to find Jesus?

There’s a city on a hill in Egypt filled with garbage and outcasts. It’s exactly the kind of place we should expect to find Jesus (and, as His followers, exactly the kind of place we should follow Him into).


A new home for the “birthplace of leaders for the nation”

Oasis Hospital, UAE

In its 55-year history, Oasis has ensured the safe delivery of over 100,000 infants into the world to families from the UAE, Oman, and many other countries. We were thrilled to open a brand new, state-of-the-art facility this year in which to continue Oasis’ legacy as the “birthplace of leaders for the nation.”


Not your average plate of hospital food

In most hospitals in the developing world, the family is responsible for bringing food for the patient. If your family doesn’t bring food, you go hungry. That doesn’t happen in our hospitals.


Best music video of all time?

Brant thinks so. We think you might, too.
