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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Meet Ruth! She is a 14 year old girl who comes from a family of ten! She is the ninth born. Ruth was born without any complications. Her mum, Mary, was very excited just as she was for all her other kids before Ruth.

One day when Ruth was just a little baby, she got sick. Mary took her to the hospital and after a few examinations, she was told that Ruth had malaria. She was diagnosed and given medicine to take. She also received a shot. Mary took her home but after a while realized that her daughter’s left leg had a problem, it was bending in the opposite direction.

Mary decided to address this issue as soon as she could. They went back to the hospital and were directed to the orthopedic department. Mary was told that physiotherapy would help her daughter. She was also given a few drugs that Ruth was required to take and a gel to rub around her knee but this did not work. After two months, Mary stopped taking her daughter for physiotherapy and stopped using the drugs, the process was too expensive for her.

Mary is hopeful that surgery will be the solution and that her daughter will be able to walk properly afterwards. “I want to be a doctor in future so I can help people in my village,” Ruth told us. Please pray for Ruth and her mum that God will meet them at their point of need.

As Ruth sat reading her get well messages on our phone, Peter, one of our housekeepers, was making her smile. We’re so grateful for all the ways God shows His love to our kiddos -- from our staff to the special words people send. Thank you for playing a part in being used by God in the lives of our kiddos! Ruth went back to theatre for a dressing change and a cast application, and we’re hopeful that she’ll get to go home soon. Please pray that when she goes home, people will see the Jesus change in her and also the physical change too! Photo of Ruth

Of all the news we heard today, this was some of the best - “She got saved!” one of our pastors told us. Ruth accepted Jesus today! Our pastors are a vital part of our ministry here, and you can see why! We’re thankful we can support their ministry in whatever way we can, and we’d love your support too through your prayers for all the kiddos in our hospital. Pray that, like Ruth, they will come to know the Jesus that we love and serve! Photo of Ruth

Ruth didn’t sleep very well last night, but the nurses on duty took very good care of her. She was in some pain after the surgery. When we saw her this morning however, she was sitting up which can only translate to one thing, her pain is slowly going away. Dear friends, please continue praying for this amazing girl as she recovers. Also— her mum is very pleased by the change she is already able to see. She kept asking us to show her a photo of Ruth taken before surgery and the one we took after! Photo of Ruth

Ruth will fit in just fine around CURE -- do you see that face? There’s a lot of silliness that goes on, including the face we made at Ruth before she made this face. Ruth is outgoing and friendly with a hint of silly. As we waited for Ruth to go into surgery today, we talked of Jesus and how we love Him. We also talked of school. “What do you like about school?” we asked her. “Science,” she told us right away. She’s in the seventh grade, and she wants to be a doctor. We’re glad she likes science since that’s really important in studying medicine. Her time in the hospital should give her a chance to see doctors in action! Please pray that whatever she becomes when she grows up, her leg won’t hinder her at all and that this procedure will result in pain-free, easy walking! Photo of Ruth
