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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Daron's Story

“For a while before we came to hospital Daron would take his crutches and practice for when he has his second surgery,” Mama Daron told us. Meet Daron, an 11-year old-boy who was born normal without a single health issue to worry his parents. Daron brought joy to his mum and dad and they were very excited at all the milestones they would watch him achieve.

When Daron turned one, he started walking around the house holding on to things. His mum noticed a small problem with how his legs looked as he tried to walk. She was concerned! She sought medical intervention because Daron’s legs looked like he had clubfoot. She was told that he didn’t have clubfoot and that the condition would correct itself as Daron grew older.

Mama Daron brought him to CURE Kenya and they were given orthotics to see if this would correct the problem without surgical intervention. It didn’t, so the doctors decided to operate. Daron’s grandfather couldn’t let this happen! He told Mama Daron not to go ahead with the surgery. At this point, Daron was seven and he even had an appointment to come have surgery.

Later, Daron’s grandpa agreed to the surgery being done. We asked Mama Daron why she thought Daron's grandfather had a change of heart. “Maybe he saw my boy playing during one of the Christmas holidays and saw that he needed a correction of some sort,” she told us.

Daron has been to CURE Kenya before and had surgery for his left leg and now he is here for the right one to be done. “I hope his leg will be healed without complications just like the other one,” Mama Daron said. Please pray for our friend as he goes through this familiar procedure all over again.

Remember yesterday we promised to let you in on the colorful things Daron was doing? Well, Daron loves drawing! So we put him up to the task of helping us draw some art that we are going to use later on and he did it with such professionalism. He had so much fun working on our little project and we love all the things he drew. We teased him about designing wedding cards for someone and he told us that he was very much ready to do it. Daron is going home today and we are happy that he will recover at a familiar place and hopefully do some more drawing! Photo of Daron

On Monday, Daron told us he liked football and hide and seek, so we played hide and seek in the ward. Today, now that cruising around the ward is hard, we handed Daron our phone and told him to hide it from us. We played for a little while and he was always better at finding our hidings than we were at his (wanna guess why this might be so?)! We also got him started on a project doing one of his other favorite things. But -- we’re gonna keep you guessing about what it is until tomorrow! We’ll give you a hint though: it’s something he can do in bed and it involves colorful things! Photo of Daron

Our doctors are like the carpenters of the OR. It takes them years of schooling and training to learn their skill, but they’re still using tools and making something better than it was just like other kinds of carpenters. And they’re not the only carpenters in the room making something better than it was -- Jesus was a carpenter and He is there too, from the very beginning to the very end of the surgery, making sure that kiddos like Daron are made better than they were when they came into the room. Please pray that Daron will come to love and appreciate this Carpenter who helped make him better than he was! Photo of Daron

This morning when we saw Daron in the ward, we thought we caught a wink from him, so we asked him to do it again and he did! This boy is a winker and he’s more than just that -- he’s loads of fun. When we asked him what he likes about school, he told us, “Everything!” When we asked more, he said, “I like the teachers. I can’t remember the other things!” This week, we’re going to watch changes happen in Daron’s leg, but as the weeks and months pass, it’ll be fun to watch him change more and see what this love for school will become for him!
