People of CURE

Kondwani

“I feel so much pain and I dropped out of school. One day I was walking back home from watching football near my village and a snake bit my foot. I run to my parents and I was taken to a herbalist who helped me. My big right toe is so sore and almost gone, I cannot put on shoes and I have been so sad. I wish had my toe treated. I missed my national exams to graduate from grade 8 because I am in so much pain. My parents could not take me to a good hospital because we do not have enough money to pay. So, coming to CURE is a miracle to me and my family! I am so happy to come here for help and am going to write my exams, play again, and be happy with my friends.”

About the photographer

Avanell Brock Avanell Brock served as CURE Storyteller at CURE Malawi. Using her skills in photography and writing to serve God and help people has been a long-term goal, and she's so happy to have a job doing just that right out of college! She gets to tell the world about the awesome kids that we serve in Malawi, getting their stories, surgeries, and smiles out to people who can pray and support them! Malawi is a beautiful country and Avanell loves exploring it on the weekends! She also enjoys photography, cooking, reading, and of course, playing with some pretty great kids. She loves her family back home in Rhode Island and is so glad that modern day technology allows her to call them almost every weekend from the other side of the world. Before joining CURE, Avanell studied photojournalism in Rochester, NY.
