Tebow CURE Hospital tackles lack of access to medical care

by on Thursday, May 16, 2019 at 6:00 pm

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 […]

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?

by on Thursday, April 18, 2019 at 4:39 pm

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

by on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 1:55 pm

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!

by on Friday, February 22, 2019 at 12:01 pm

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 […]

Hope Walks

An important change for CURE Clubfoot

by on Wednesday, January 30, 2019 at 12:19 pm

Sometimes, change is good. Today, I want to let you know about a wonderful change: CURE International’s board of directors voted unanimously to make our clubfoot program an independent entity. It’s called Hope Walks and will be devoted exclusively to correcting infant clubfoot. You probably already know that CURE has provided surgeries and treatment for […]
