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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Peter's Story

“I didn’t have the ability financially to take my child to any hospital because everywhere we went meant he was going to need surgery.” Mama Peter told us.

Meet Peter! This boy has so much joy and energy. Peter is 10 years old from a family of three. His siblings are twins and his mum says they really enjoy each others company. Peter was born normal but seven months later the mum noticed some kind of deformity in his legs. He was developing bow legs.

When Joyce, Peter’s mum went to hospital the first time, she was told that her child would grow and this problem would go away as he grew older. She went back home and kept observing her son. Nothing seemed to be changing. In fact, Peter was getting worse as he grew.

A few years later, Joyce went to hospital and surgery was mentioned as an option. She turned her face away when she heard the amount it was going to cost to have her son operated on. At this point, Peter had learned how to walk and was already enrolled in school. The last hospital Joyce took Peter was where she heard about CURE Kenya.

Joyce brought Peter to a mobile clinic first where they were seen by a doctor. She was encouraged to do all she could to make sure her son could get surgery. Joyce took a leap of faith and asked a few of her family and friends to help her because she could not raise the hospital bill on her own.

Peter is really a smart boy who enjoys smiling a lot and playing with everyone who comes his way. Please pray for him as he goes through surgery at CURE Kenya. “I really pray that he will be healed when he is done with treatment.” Joyce told us.

We were so happy to see Peter during clinic this week. It was time for his tiny pins to be removed and a new cast put on his leg for him to continue with the correction. It was a hard time for him as he saw the procedure, but he is a strong man and was able to get through it. Please pray for the rest of his correction process. Photo of Peter

There was sunshine to be enjoyed this morning, so Peter and his mom were doing just that! While they were outside, an issue had to be addressed about his cast and they’ll probably need to fix it. Our dear smile machine is also an active machine and when you’re used to stepping on your foot, it’s hard to adjust to not doing so even when it’s in a big clunky cast. Thankfully, Pastor Phoebe came to the rescue and offered a welcome distraction from his cast issues by taking him to the playroom. He’ll be leaving hopefully today, so this is one of his last chances! Please pray for his cast to stay intact over the next few weeks until he comes back! Photo of Peter

“This place is really nice, it amazes me!” Peter thought out loud this morning as he was enjoying his cup of tea. This thought might have been brought by the fact that he was given two toy cars by Pastor Emmy from the playroom and that everyone here is kind to him. Peter is recovering well and we enjoy seeing him play in the ward and just crack people up with his cute statements! Please thank God with us for the progress we are already witnessing!

“I want the car (wheelchair) I want to move around a bit.” Peter told our Storyteller Elvis. Isn’t it just awesome that our super fun boy aka smile machine is back up and cheerful as ever? When we saw him this morning it was almost unbelievable considering he didn’t leave his bed yesterday. He was even playing with his balloons and asking for a wheelchair to make his moving around easy. We promised to bring him a wheelchair after he had taken breakfast and rested a bit. We thank God for Peter and the progress he is making! Photo of Peter

Peter is a charmer! People fall in love with him everywhere he goes in the hospital. People fall in love with his smile. Yesterday, he went to theatre for his surgery but before he was put to sleep, the nurse anesthetist had a chat with him to explain what he wanted to do. Peter kept asking questions about the equipment in theatre and even cracked jokes about them. The operation went well and his transformation journey has started! Peter is in some pain today and we are praying for him to be able to shake it off and smile again. Please join us! Photo of Peter

“Do you know that your friend’s name is the same as yours?” we asked tiny Peter about Peter, CURE Kenya's guard. We didn’t really get a response to this question but when we asked them to take a picture together both of them were really happy to do it. Tiny Peter had some fun riding in a wheelchair while being pushed by Peter the guard. Tiny Peter loves smiling and is generally a very happy kiddo! We can bet that everyone he has met has smiled back because he is just too irresistible. “I wonder why people like him that much, even at home people enjoy his company a lot!” Joyce told us. Please pray with us for Peter’s surgery! Photo of Peter
