CURE in Kenya

The picture above is of CURE in Kenya. Everyone who serves with CURE in Kenya, from medical professionals to office staff, are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical and spiritual care to people who, without CURE, couldn't find it and couldn't afford it, just like Janet. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Janet. When you give a gift through Janet's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Kenya. Have more questions? Ask us.

Monthly Giving: Be a Hero!

When you partner with us monthly, we'll send you an email each month to introduce you to a different child who was helped because of your generosity. You can choose to follow their updates and send them get well messages. That means that each year, you're a part of helping 12 different children, beginning with Janet. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Janet might have come into our interview using a wheelchair, but judging by the roughness of her hands, she often resorts to traveling on all fours. Her feet are seriously deformed and almost look like a severe case of clubfoot. But her high degree of disability is completely trumped by her high degree of enthusiasm. As I called out her name, she gave me a toothy smile, and I could not help but instantly fall in love with her. She completely warmed my heart, eagerly sharing with me about how much she loved her school, her friends, going to class, and learning from her teachers.

I thank God for Joytown, the school she attends for disabled kids, and other schools like it that have taken upon the mandate of helping children like Janet gain a better life, one their parents might never have been able to provide. This year in May, Janet will be coming to CURE to have two surgeries done. One will be aimed at releasing the stiffness in both of her knees, and the other will target her deformed feet.

Honestly, I can’t withhold the excitement when I think about welcoming her into our hospital. This time around, our reunion will afford us more time, and I can’t wait to witness what God has in store for her and her healing. So now as we start preparing for May, I hope that you’ll consider joining us in her corner, rooting her on throughout her journey with CURE.
