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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“My mind will be at peace when my daughter gets healed,” Rosa told us.

Meet Elizabeth. She is ten years old and lives almost nine hours away from CURE Kenya. When she was eight years old her mum, Rosa, noticed that she limped a little and that her leg didn’t look okay. She realized that Elizabeth’s left leg was bent awkwardly at the knee. Rosa knew that this was a big problem but due to very limited resources where they live, they decided not to try finding help for Elizabeth.

Rosa was so troubled by this. She was worried for her daughter. Elizabeth is in baby class (sort of like pre-school) currently and is doing okay at school but her mum would definitely like her to walk and play normally like all the other kids.

One day CURE Kenya was doing an awareness campaign in Elizabeth’s hometown. Rosa had heard about CURE Kenya before from a parent who had brought his daughter and was in the process of healing. She decided to go and listen and find out more about treatment and that's when she decided to get help for Elizabeth. Rosa is very hopeful that her little girl will be healed. Please pray for Elizabeth’s procedure to be successful and for Rosa to have a clear conscience after her daughter’s treatment.

We caught somebody on her trek to theatre this morning in the arms of her mama. Today is manipulation and cast application day for our lovely! We’re sure she’ll be back to giggling in no time once she makes it through her little theatre trip. And she has something to giggle about too because if all goes well, tomorrow she’ll hopefully be discharged! Please pray that her leg will heal a little bit more each and every day!

Elizabeth has a giggle of gold, and we were rewarded with lots of these giggles during a tickle fest that we had with her and her bed-neighbor, Faith. Elizabeth practiced her walking today too, so today was just generally a positive one. Tomorrow will be another theatre day for our girl as she goes for a manipulation of her leg and we think a cast application too. This is all a part of her healing journey, and we’re so thankful she’s on the other side of theatre! Photo of Elizabeth

Elizabeth had a good night's sleep and we know this because this morning she was very bright and smiley. She didn’t experience much pain during the night and we are grateful to God for that. We spoke to her mum a bit and she told us that she was waiting to hear from the doctors what the way forward is. Thank you for praying for Elizabeth, she continues to be optimistic as ever and nothing seems to dull her smile! Photo of Elizabeth

Elizabeth is not alone. Clearly, judging by this photo, she’s surrounded by people who care about her and a God who loves her -- we invite Jesus into our daily operations at CURE Kenya just as John the nurse anesthetist is doing. But she’s also not alone in another way - the girl sitting next to her has a similar condition as her. Her name is Carol and from what we understand, both girls got vaccines done incorrectly which caused their legs to bow in strange ways. Rosaline also has the same condition because of the vaccine. Please pray for God to heal all these girls! You can read more about Rosaline here: https://cure.org/curekids/kenya/2018/05/rosaline/ Photo of Elizabeth

The name Elizabeth means ‘Pledged to God.’ Our girl is both gentle and sweet with a smile to match, all of these things that reflect the God that her name says she is pledged to. Hopefully while she’s here, we’ll learn more about how her relationship with God is and how connected they are. She’ll be having surgery soon to help heal her leg that bends backwards, and we’re thankful to know that God is caring for her by bringing her to CURE Kenya. Please pray she sees that care in her life! Photo of Elizabeth
