What am I giving to?

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 Bridget. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Bridget. When you give a gift through Bridget'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 Bridget. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

When we first met this mother and daughter duo, mom Josephine shared, “I can’t say that I’ve had any challenges with Bridget. I’ve always accepted her as she is, never regretted anything about it, and now all I can do is pray for strength to continue thinking that way as well as for Bridget to have a good life.” With a mother like that, we know Bridget who at the time had dislocated hips, knee issues, and clubfeet would be cared for and loved just as any child should be. Her mother is as loving and kind to our staff at CURE as she is to Bridget.

Bridget was five months the first time time she came in. She’s now almost five years old! She had her clubfoot surgery at five months, another surgery for her knees at around two years, and now she’s back for another clubfoot surgery. She’s still got a dislocated hip, but Josephine told us, “They said: let her step down properly, then…” Once Bridget has her recurrent clubfoot problem solved, we can fix her hip so she’ll be able to walk better.

“For her it’s a little difficult cause she sees other children running to play and she’s left behind,” Josephine said. Right now Bridget mostly stays home and plays with her little brother, Bradley. “The good thing about her is she’s very positive, nothing puts her down.” She’s also determined! Josephine tries to discourage her from walking, probably because of her condition, but Bridget has other plans. She tells her mom, “No, I have to walk like other children!” Aside from wanting to walk like other kids and play, she also wants to go to school. Please pray for Bridget in all of this -- especially that she’ll get to ‘walk like other children’ and go to school!

“Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.” (John F. Kennedy) Every child that we meet is a chance to send a message. And we have the opportunity to send whatever message we want. We all play a part in this. We can each send a message of God’s hope and love through each of our actions, including the special joy of Jesus that Pastor Phoebe sends with our patients! Please pray for us -- that we all send the message that God wants! And pray for Bridget to be sent with that message well when she goes home in the next few days! Photo of Bridget

Bridget is so cute. She tried to smile as she was having her breakfast this morning and we ended up getting a tiny pout that was very cute. Her pain is going away and we are grateful to God for that. Bridget will remain under observation for now until the little swelling in her legs goes away completely. Photo of Bridget

When we got to Bridget’s bed this morning, we found her awake and looking out the window enjoying how bright it was. We spoke with her mum shortly and she told us that Bridget was in some pain and that she would show her where she felt the most pain. Please pray that her healing process will be smooth!

“In peace I will lie down and sleep, for you alone, Lord, make me dwell in safety.” (Psalm 4:8) It’s wonderful to know that Bridget and her mama are safe in God’s hands as they sleep. Bridget had her surgery yesterday, and for today, she needs to rest so that the body God gave her can work hard to heal! Please pray for her body to do a very good job of this! Photo of Bridget

Look at that Bridget face! She’s a cutie and with a loving mama like hers who fights for her, it must give her daughter such security in life. She’s got freedom to be herself, knowing she’s deeply loved. Pray for her this week as she goes through yet another surgery! Photo of Bridget
