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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Tabitha's Story

“I was really shocked when I first held my baby because I had never seen clubfoot before. To make matters worse, it was not clubfoot only!” Penninah told us.

Tabitha is four years old and was born with clubfoot. She was also born with a limb condition that did not allow her to bend her knees. Her mum Penninah started seeking medical intervention as early as three days after Tabby’s birth. She was told about the clubfoot clinic at CURE Kenya by the doctor who saw her child at a hospital near her town.

Penninah brought her daughter to CURE Kenya and started with clubfoot correction first. This won’t be Tabitha’s first time here. In fact, when her mum tells her that she is taking her to hospital, Tabitha always asks, “Are we going to our hospital?” Tabitha now needs surgery to allow the muscles around her knees to be released so that she can bend her knees comfortably. Please join us in praying for Tabby's healing and thank you for your support!

The worries of the ‘stone change’ have become so yesterday because our lady has GONE HOME!!! We’re really happy for her and it’s all because of our big God and your prayers. Thanks for praying and we’ll catch you up on our girl’s progress at the end of October when she comes back for a cast change! (sorry we couldn’t share a photo today — she was so excited to leave, she left before we had a chance to say hi).

“I was just encouraging her and telling her that today there wouldn’t be any pain because they were only going to remove the stone,” Storyteller Elvis explained to us. Tabby was nervous today as she waited for her cast change, so Elvis tried his best to assure her that all would be well. He also told us something kind of funny: calling a cast a ‘stone’ is one of the easiest ways to describe it to a kiddo. It makes sense to them! Please pray for Tabby as she waits with her new ‘stone’ to go home. Photo of Tabitha

When we got to Tabby’s bed, we found Penninah cleaning up the bed because Tabitha had just finished eating a biscuit. A moment later, Tabby got tired of sitting up so she asked her mum to put her down so she could rest. Tabitha had a calm night and we thank God for that. She might have her cast change today or tomorrow and then she will be on her way home! Photo of Tabitha

This morning Tabby was quite bright so we sought to find out why. Her mum, Penninah, told us that they slept well and that our sweet friend wasn’t in too much pain last night. She later requested us to come back when Tabitha’s dad came to visit in order to show him some of the photos we took of Tabitha. We then found out that Tabby was excited because she knew her dad was coming to see her. We asked our sweet friend to show us using her tiny fingers how much pain she felt and this is what she showed us. Tabby is recovering well and we are grateful to God for this. Photo of Tabitha

Tabitha had surgery today and is now recovering in her bed! She is under the care of the safest hands in her world, her mum’s. We pray that this surgery will be life-changing for her and that she will be able to walk well soon. Please remember sweet little Tabby in your prayers! Photo of Tabitha
