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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Quinter's Story

Quinter is seven and playing is a language she speaks well! “She’s funny,” her mom, Ann, told us. “She likes playing and jokes. She jokes with me.” Even as we and Quinter took turns taking photos, Quinter couldn’t sit for very long before she’d burst into some silly antic in front of our camera.

Seven weeks ago, Quinter was speaking the language she knows so well while climbing a tree. Unfortunately, the tree was not speaking the same language and one of its branches broke, sending Quinter tumbling to the ground. This resulted in a hurt hip, wrist, and a trip to the local hospital. Quinter ended up leaving the hospital with a splint on her leg, but with no real healing achieved.

“Someone told me there is another hospital,” Ann explained of her learning about CURE. Quinter came to CURE Kenya last week to be seen by the doctor and they were able to schedule her for surgery this week. “I want her to go back to school cause this term she didn’t manage to go,” Ann shared with us. This was due to her injury. Thankfully, a lot of kiddos in Kenya are going on a month long break right around this time.

Quinter’s mama loves her a lot, and we’re thankful that she’s fought for her and sought treatment for her. Please pray that the treatment Quinter receives at CURE will allow her to once again get up and start speaking the language she knows so well: playing!

Quinter was around CURE Kenya today for clinic, but we were unaware until we saw her file and by then, she’d already been seen by the doc and had left! Her family was concerned because Quinter has a bit of a limp when she’s moving quickly, but the doctor assured them that this is part of the healing process. Hopefully the limp will vanish eventually, although because of Quinter’s injury, she’ll probably need a hip replacement when she’s older. Thankfully, it’ll hopefully be lots of years down the road. She also experiences occasional pain, mostly when she’s trying to stand. Please pray that Quinter’s limp goes away and that she lives pain free! We’ll see her next in October.

Quinter seemed to be having a snooze when we went to visit her bed this morning, but her mom nudged her awake. She hadn’t been awake for five minutes before she was making faces for our camera. “She’s fun!” Ann kept saying. Quinter told one of the boys in a bed close to her that he was ‘so pretty he should have been a girl.’ Quinter has such a silly sense of humor! She’s doing great and should go home either Sunday or Monday. Please pray for our girl’s continued recovery! Photo of Quinter

Sometimes in life, we have to be broken in order to heal. Such was the case today with Quinter’s wrist. While Dr. Mang’oli worked on fixing her hip, Dr. Kinyua worked on fixing her wrist. Because of the way her wrist had healed, one of her bones had to be broken so it could heal properly. She also had pins placed in both her wrist and her hip which will be taken out later. As Quinter heals, you can pray that she looks to the God who is both the fixer and healer of all broken things! Photo of Quinter

Quinter has a friend. Her name is Maureen. As they sat together, letting us take their photos, we said: “Hug!” and tried to get Quinter to give Maureen a hug. It didn’t quite work. Instead, Quinter laid back on the bed, laughing. We’re so thankful that Quinter already has a friend at CURE! Maureen has been here before, so we can tell you that she is a very good friend to have!
