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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Back at home, people recognize CURE Kenya a lot because of all the kids who have been here and gotten help. This is why I decided to bring my child,” Caroline shared with us.

Two years ago, Caroline was blessed with a beautiful baby girl and she called her Rose! Rose brought so much joy to her and her husband as this was their last born child. The rest of her kids are grown up and are in boarding schools so Rose would help keep her and her husband on their toes at home.

When Rose turned one month old, her right leg started swelling around her hip area. It was painful and it made her very uncomfortable. Her mum decided to show the nurse who was going to give Rose a shot the swollen leg and he advised her to let them treat the swelling first. One year down the line, Rose was doing so well until she started walking and her mum realized that she had an awkward limp.

Caroline took Rose to the hospital again to find out what the problem could be. An x-ray showed that Rose's hip was dislocated and it was growing the wrong way. Rose asked around to find out where she could get help for her daughter. One of her friends told her about CURE Kenya. Rose is here and she needs corrective surgery to change her current situation. Please pray for a successful procedure and complete healing!

We’re so thankful for our fabulous nurses who love on and care for our kiddos on a daily basis. Sometimes this is a thankless job though because some kiddos find nurses scary and they react in various ways. Rose was super teary today and still not feeling up to being our friend (and it’s okay -- she needs time to process). Mary, her nurse, came to take out the IV in her hand, and Rose let her although she wasn’t necessarily so happy about it. But the thing is -- IV removal is actually a good sign. In Rose’s case, it means she’s going home and won’t have to come back until the end of January for a checkup! So, when you think of Rose, pray she starts feeling less scared and also pray because there’s a chance she’ll need another surgery. Photo of Rose

“Rose, would you like to have a doll?" we asked our little friend. “Ooooh!” she said, meaning no! Rose is very particular about the people she likes and it is quite hard to trick her into being friends using dolls and balloons. What she doesn’t know though is that we won’t stop until she accepts our friendship! Rose is here for her pin removal and we would like to invite you to pray with us that her procedure will be successful. Her mum is very optimistic that her daughter will be healed and we thank God for this! Photo of Rose

Yesterday's quote "she is doing very well -- we thank God" became even more of a reality today because our girl went HOME!!! She was really missing her mom in the morning and not feeling up for a photo and when we went back to check on her later, she had already left! We're sorry we can't share a photo from today, but the reason we can't is a reason to praise Jesus! We'll see her on October 24th when she comes back to CURE Kenya.

Rose’s auntie was on the phone speaking with Caroline wanting to find out how Rose was doing. “She is doing very well. We thank God!” Caroline told her. Rose’s mum held the phone for Rose to say hello to her auntie and Rose had a tiny smile on her face after. Caroline was a bit concerned about the way forward now that her daughter has had surgery. We encouraged her that God has her back and she will be healed and do all the things she wishes to do! Photo of Rose

“Mummy!” Rose called out crying as the anesthetist took her to the operating room. Rose didn’t want her mom, Caroline, to go away and leave her. When Rose got to the room, Veronica, a theatre nurse, promised to go back and bring Rose’s mum. This helped to calm Rose down a bit and within no time she was put to sleep. Rose had a successful surgery. Now we're praying that she recovers quickly and that her healing will be smooth. “I believe that the doctors were led by God so I have no doubt that my daughter will be better soon!” Caroline told us.

Rose has to wait until tomorrow to have her surgery so that means she has some more time to explore the playroom and have fun! Hopefully she will warm up to us and smile more. In this photo, her mum was preparing Rose to go to the playroom! Photo of Rose
