A special thanks to WAY-FM
Last week, CURE partnered with WAY-FM—a family of listener-supported radio stations—to hold CURE’s largest radio fundraiser of the year. All week long, WAY-FM’s DJs helped spread CURE’s mission of healing the sick and proclaiming the kingdom of God to the communities across the United States. “It was exciting to see WAY-FM listeners–people from all over […]
Hope in the midst of overwhelming need, in Niger and beyond
Even under the best of circumstances, Niger is a tough place to live. The UN developed a metric called the Human Development Index (HDI) that takes basic national data like life expectancy, education, and standard of living into account. Almost without fail, Niger takes last place every single year. (189th place out of 189 for […]
CURE International supports global surgery initiatives
This week the World Health Organization (WHO) wrapped up their 72rd World Health Assembly (WHA), which was held May 20-28, 2019, in Geneva, Switzerland. During the opening ceremony, Richard Horton, the editor-in-chief of The Lancet, gave an address, and in it he did something interesting. In the lead-up to the WHA, Horton asked this question […]
Tebow CURE Hospital tackles lack of access to medical care
I have a confession. I’m sitting in a Starbucks as I write this article. Directly below me is a Krispy Kreme doughnut shop. Just down the hall is a state-of-the-art movie theater, complete with an IMAX cinema. You might be surprised to learn that I am only three blocks from Tebow CURE Hospital. Over the […]

CURE Niger goes solar!
During Niger’s hot season, its not uncommon for people to follow up their traditional greetings with, “Et la chaleur?” (“And the heat?”). People nearly always respond to this question with a smile and a small groan. The heat. In a land covered by the Sahara Desert, the heat and the sun are a significant part […]
The “fly-in medical mission” faces criticism. Is some of it warranted?
A recent article on NPR’s Goats and Soda blog took a critical look at traditional short-term, “fly-in” medical missions that are common throughout the developing world. I found this piece very interesting, and after spending seven years with CURE International in our hospital in Niger, West Africa, a lot of what was said resonated with […]
Niger’s IDP camps: God uses intended evil for good
The east of Niger is a difficult place. It hosts Niger’s largest body of water, Lake Chad, which is the convergence point for the four countries of Niger, Chad, Cameroon, and Nigeria. It’s a body of water that has shrunk nearly 95% since the 1960s. With increasing scarcity of water in a country that is […]
Tebow CURE Hospital celebrates third-floor grand opening!
For the nearly four years since Tebow CURE Hospital opened its doors, the elevators mysteriously “skipped” the third floor. Visitors would ask why, and over the years, the stories became more creative and even a little silly. We would joke, “Oh, that’s the employee’s secret disco club,” or, “That’s the penthouse suite!” After a shared […]
Night to Shine: A glimpse of heaven
People with special needs can receive love like any other person in this world. Three years ago, armed with a heart to share this truth and a wonderful partnership with the Tim Tebow Foundation, we came up with a one-of-a-kind event for our special needs friends. In 2016, our Night to Shine prom was born. […]
