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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Meet this cute girl called Pamela. She is the second born in a family of two and has an older brother. Pamela is in school and is going into the first grade soon.

One day, at the age of three, Pamela was left alone in the house as her mum went to harvest maize in the farm. Before her mum left, she made sure she had boiled milk and left it to cool. A few minutes later she heard her daughter crying. When she went back to the house, she found her little girl on the floor with her left hand extremely burnt. Pamela had tried to touch the sufuria (kettle) of hot milk.

“My wife ran away with our daughter when she had her accident because she thought I would beat her up,” Michael, Pamela’s dad, told us. Mama Pamela instinctively thought she should ran away because she feared that if her husband came back home from work, he would beat her for letting this happen to his daughter. She later called Michael to let him know what had happened and where they were hiding, so he traveled home to help. Michael didn’t beat his wife up. Instead, he found a solution for the problem and now he hopes his daughter can be treated, and that she’ll be able to use both her hands.

Pamela was initially taken to a dispensary and her wounds were cleaned and wrapped nicely to avoid infections. However, after the wounds were healed, she had burn contractures, which is why she is at CURE Kenya. Mama Pamela is currently sick and is losing her eyesight. This means that Michael needs to provide everything for his family and it can be very stressing. Please pray that God is able to provide for Michael’s needs as well as his family’s. Please also pray for Pamela’s procedure.

From last week until this week, Pamela is still smiling! This one is her big pre-theatre-visit smile! Pamela was almost going to have her surgery site checked. She might as well keep smiling even now because she gets to go home! She’s been discharged today, but will wait to leave until tomorrow morning, probably due to travel distance. Thank Jesus with us for her continued healing and we’ll catch our girl the beginning of next month when she comes for some rehab! Photo of Pamela

Awww! Don’t these two just look adorable? We are very excited to see Pamela like this. She is up and feeding and smiling which means she's not in as much pain as she was yesterday. Michael is doing such a great job by being here for his daughter and we thank God for him. Please don’t get weary of praying for Pamela’s healing. Photo of Pamela

Pamela struggled a bit with pain through the night and couldn’t sleep properly. That is why when we saw her this morning, she was a bit grumpy and sleepy. Dad Michael helped her through the night. Pamela also received some pain killers from our nurses on night duty. Please continue praying for Pamela’s healing and that the pain will go away! Photo of Pamela

Pamela went to theatre today and had a successful procedure. She was a bit tense when she got in at first but the nurse anesthetist was able to cheer her up. During the procedure, the doctor explained to us what was happening and how the healing process would be. Please pray for Pamela’s recovery process, that she will endure through the pain and in the end be able to use her hand completely. Photo of Pamela

Pamela’s got a beautiful joy and a sweet shyness about her. While we were trying to take her photos in the morning, she would fidget some, probably from her shyness. But, she would smile some too, probably from her joy. A nurse brought her a special gown to wear for her theatre trip, and she and Michael put it on and she smiled again at us. Then, as she waited to see if she'd go to theatre, she spent time with a friend of hers who we hope you’ll meet later in the week. Please pray for this beautifully joyful, sweetly shy girl as she journeys with us at CURE this week! Photo of Pamela
