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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Kevin's Story

“I noticed my son had a problem with his leg when he turned three years old and was trying to walk,” Raymond, Kevin’s dad, explained to us. Kevin is a six-year-old boy who is shy and quiet, but we look forward to changing that as we interact. He is the lastborn in a family of four. Kevin has a limb deformity that forces him to walk on the toes of his right leg. He goes to school near his home, so thankfully it is not such a big hassle for him. He is in the first grade.

When Raymond discovered his son had a problem, he took him to several hospitals seeking a solution. The amount of money that was mentioned each time they went shocked Raymond. He didn’t know where he could get the money, so they kept going back home without any help.

“When I heard that CURE doctors were coming to my town, I decided to give it a shot,” Raymond told us. He met us at a mobile clinic in his hometown and Kevin was seen by our doctors. Raymond was told about the procedure his son was going to need. He is hopeful that Kevin’s problem will be solved by the time they leave CURE Kenya. Please dear friends, pray with us for Kevin’s healing!

The last time Kevin and his dad were here, Kevin’s dad gave his life to Christ. We tried to follow up on how Baba Kevin was growing in his faith and he told us that he started going to church. This gave us a reason to rejoice and give thanks to God. We also had a reason to thank God because Kevin’s recovery is on track. Today he came for an AFO measurement and, the next time we will see him, he’ll be collecting it to use it for correction. Please thank God with us for all these positive things! Photo of Kevin

“Kelvin’s (Kevin) dad accepted Christ!” These were the words from Pastor Phoebe’s mouth this morning and they’re some of the most eternally impactful words that could be said! Yesterday we caught the two of them chatting and today we found out why they were chatting! We’re excited for the impact that this could have on not only Raymond, but Kevin and the rest of his family. God has a way of coming in and transforming families, starting with one person. Please pray that Raymond will be the one and that he won’t just stay as the one, but instead share Jesus with his family and beyond! Photo of Kevin

“Sasa! (Hi)” we said to Kevin. He didn’t know how to respond so we taught him how to say ‘Poa’ which is swahili for cool/okay/fine. Usually you raise your thumb as you say poa. Kevin is doing well and they’ll hopefully go home today or tomorrow. But here is some more good news; Baba Kevin gave his life to Jesus yesterday with Pastor Phoebe’s help! “From this moment onward I’ll commit myself to be going to church every Sunday," he told Pastor Phoebe. We are so excited about this and we’d like to invite you to thank God with us and pray for his faith to grow! Photo of Kevin

“What are you doing?” we asked Sam the nurse as he took care of Kevin after his surgery yesterday. “I’m charting the vitals… they’re in normal range.” Sam works as a nurse currently in theatre, and has been working for CURE Kenya for several years now. “What I love about (my job) is that these are not sick children. It’s just a part of their body. When you’re (they’re) awake, you can chat... you really get to engage the kids.” We’re thankful for co-workers like Sam who keep things running and keep our kiddos engaged and happy and strong! Now pray for Kevin that he’ll heal up happy and strong! Photo of Kevin

Storyteller Elvis was talking to Kevin’s dad and we were taking pictures. There’s a smile that’s hiding in that face of Kevin’s and we know it because we’ve seen it! You’ve gotta work for the smile though! We learned that teasing Kevin with high fives by moving our hand before the high five happens brings a smile, and we’ll see throughout the week what else brings a smile! Photo of Kevin
