Healing for tomorrow: CURE and medical training

by on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at 6:00 am

The heart of CURE is to bring these children the healing they desperately need. We do this every day through hospitals and specialty programs in 30 countries worldwide. Meeting this immediate need, though, is not enough. The deficit of available medical care, combined with the growing population in the world’s most underserved countries, means we need a greater pool of medical professionals to be able to meet those needs for more children.

One year ago today, the CURE International family endured the worst attack in our history when a lone gunman murdered three friends within the gates of the CURE International Hospital in Kabul, Afghanistan. Among the victims was my colleague, Dr. Jerry Umanos, a hero in the truest sense: someone who gave up his life to […]

Earlier this year I traveled to CURE Zambia with a group of church leaders. I asked a good friend of mine, Tich Dzinotyiwei, to join us.

Working together to heal body, mind, and heart

As you may already know, CURE’s model of spiritual ministry relies heavily on our partnerships with local pastors and church planters in the countries we serve. Wherever possible throughout our network of hospitals and programs, our spiritual ministry teams build intentional relationships with local church leaders in order to ensure opportunities for pastoral follow-up outside of our hospital and clinical settings.

After decades of service at Messiah College, Layton joined the leadership team of CURE International and from 2000-2009 spent nearly a decade supporting the development efforts of CURE’s mission to […]

Dan Terry – Carpe Crux Crucis

by on Monday, August 16, 2010 at 1:11 pm

I came across this photo of Dan this morning. When I took this picture, one afternoon in Kabul, I remember thinking that it captured pretty well the essence of the man who was Dan Terry. There is a youthful, almost boyish grin on his face, coupled with eyes that look for every opportunity to seize […]
