What am I giving to?

The CURE Hospital in Kenya

The picture above is of the CURE hospital in Kenya. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE Kenya 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 Sherline. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Sherline and kids like her. When you give a gift through Sherline's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in Kenya, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in 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 Sherline. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Sherline’s mother Catherine had never seen a cleft lip before, and so when she gave birth to her baby girl at home, she immediately rushed her to a nearby hospital to find out what had happened. The doctors explained the condition to her and immediately directed them to us. Catherine didn’t waste time in bringing Sherline for a consultation, but unfortunately, operation requirements slowed them down a bit. Because Sherline wasn’t heavy enough for surgery, the waiting game began. But their patience definitely paid off, and at 5 months old, her cleft lip is now a thing of the past. At this point, the waiting game resumes as she approaches 1 year old, the time period when she’ll be eligible for her palate surgery. And soon enough, it too will be joining her cleft lip in the history books, and just think, she probably won’t even remember.

...and then her surgery date changes again. This time it is because the ENT team that comes to operate on our babies had to move their visit to June. So, God willing, lets look out for her in June.

It has been quite a hustle trying to track down this little lady, but the effort was well worth it : ) After speaking with her father we have resolved some miscommunication and now plan on seeing her in October for the next ENT. Doctors will decide at this review if she is old enough to continue in the cleft palate repair ! Stay tuned and keep praying for Sherline.
