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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Faith's Story

“I like her because she is not discouraged,” Tabitha told us of her daughter, Faith. “She is okay.” Faith’s story could give her reason to be discouraged. Born with extra toes and feet that look different than most, her mom at first thought her condition was hereditary, only to later learn that it doesn’t seem to run in the family. Faith’s parents are both farmers and since they weren’t able to grow their money on trees, it was sparse. Faith’s parents couldn’t afford to seek treatment for Faith. “I had sympathy to help,” Tabitha shared her heart despite her lack of finances.

In 2016, as Faith and her siblings were walking down a hill to go home after a visit to their grandparents, they encountered a fire that required them to walk through it. A literal fire. Someone had chosen a bad time to light a fire and Faith’s brother had to first carry his younger sister through the fire, and then Faith as well because he knew she couldn’t run through the fire. As a result of this, Faith and her brother both sustained burns and spent time in hospital recovering.

“What encourages us is the Word of God,” Tabitha shared with us. Clearly, Faith’s God sustains her and her family even through the fiery trials they’ve gone through. And now God is sustaining them and bringing healing to Faith through her time at CURE Kenya. Please pray that after Faith’s surgery, she will ‘live a life like other kids’ just as her mother hopes she will!

Faith got herself into a wheelchair and was being wheeled to theatre for a cast change just as her bed-neighbor, Elizabeth, was being lifted by her mom in the yellow skirt. Elizabeth was also being taken to theatre! At least they had each other to wait with in the waiting bay as they waited for another theatre adventure, though this one wasn’t as big as the last one. We’re so glad they have each other! Faith should be going home tomorrow if all goes well. Please pray it DOES go well! Photo of Faith

Faith found herself something else to play with today - friends and a balloon! We caught her socializing this morning, but when we saw her, she told us, “Tuende,” which means ‘we go’ in Swahili. She wanted us to go back to her bed. We made a few hello-stops along the way, but when we finally made it to her bed, we found Faith lying there and had a little tickle fest with her and her bed-neighbor, Elizabeth. Faith seems to be doing great, and we’re thankful and hopeful she’ll be able to go home before too long! Photo of Faith

“She wants a dolly,” Faith’s mom told us today. When we asked what kind of dolly, she told us one with hair. We asked her if she wanted it to have hair like ours and she told us yes! We’re hoping she’ll get one from the playroom soon, but if she hasn’t by tomorrow, we’ll find one for her to play with. Our pretty-eyed girl seems to be feeling better today, so that’s great news! Thank Jesus with us for this! Photo of Faith

Faith’s feet are going to look a little different from now on! During her procedure yesterday, the doctors removed a toe from each foot and did surgery on her foot to help straighten it. Though this was causing her pain today, we’re excited to see the transformation that will happen to her feet and what kind of shoes she’ll wear once she’s healed. Please pray that her pain will subside so she can be excited too! Photo of Faith

Do you see those beautiful eyes? Those are the eyes of a girl whose beauty goes beyond just the surface. She has a beautiful heritage that comes from parents who have faith in God - just as Faith’s name implies! She had surgery today to help her beautiful feet become straighter and allow her to walk better. We’ll update you more tomorrow on how her surgery went! Photo of Faith
