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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Emmanuel's Story

“He was okay -- walking, straight legs,” Raphael told us. All seemed well with sweet Emmanuel until he was five or six and then his legs started misbehaving. Raphael wonders if it’s a hereditary thing. Emmanuel’s legs bend inwards, and his mama has the opposite problem - bowed legs. With her condition, it makes things a little tougher. Thankfully, her cousin Raphael is around to help.

On top of this, God allowed things to come together. “There was a neighbor in the village,” Raphael explained about how they discovered CURE. In fact there were two neighbors. And who are these two neighbors? They’re people who have already been treated at CURE Kenya! Two mobile clinic visits later, Emmanuel and Raphael are here! “We’re just excited and waiting to see if he’ll be okay,” Raphael told us.

We know Emmanuel is in God’s hands and we know he’s got a fantastic future ahead of him. “Curious. Playful. A sense of ingenuity.” These are words that Raphael used to describe Emmanuel. He loves making things. When we mentioned that he’ll probably be an engineer someday, Raphael told us, “Most likely.” Whatever the future holds for sweet Emmanuel, we know Who holds that future, including Emmanuel’s surgery this week!

It was time for Emmanuel’s second cast to come off! He had the first cast removed at clinic, and now this one. It might still have been a bit scary for him, but hopefully not as much as the first time. He’s healing well and we’re super glad! We’re now going to wait for him to come back to CURE Kenya because he has a pin that needs to be removed that is hiding. So until then, pray he continues to heal! Photo of Emmanuel

“Are you going home?” we asked Emmanuel and he told us he is! “Are you happy?” we asked and he gave us an affirmative. We had a little bit of fun showing him how to put his hands up in the air to show he’s happy. This was great and brought everyone smiles! We’re so thankful for Emmanuel’s smooth and seemingly easy recovery! And -- Emmanuel has something to tell you: “Thank you and God bless you!” We’ve been sharing get-well messages from all you lovely people and we’re hoping that they’ll give Emmanuel continued smiles during the next six weeks as he waits to have his cast changed on mobile clinic!

Pastor Maiyo and Raphael were busy chatting about life including how they’re both from the same area in Kenya. Emmanuel just sat there, smiling at us. The beauty about the world is that it’s small. The more people you meet, the more people you meet who know other people that you’ve met! Life is fun and we’re happy that, pretty soon, Emmanuel’s life will be even more fun when his leg is fully healed! Photo of Emmanuel

“Are you ready to go to theatre?” we asked Emmanuel yesterday as we walked with him from the playroom to his bed to prepare for surgery. Emmanuel, Raphael and the nurse made sure he was even more ready by having him wear a gown and it wasn’t too long before he was off to the waiting bay. When finally the time came, he was taken back to theatre. When he was ready and the doctors were ready, the doctors went to work, being the hands and feet of Jesus and working to heal Emmanuel. And now that surgery is over, we’re sure Emmanuel is ready to heal! Please pray with us for this! Photo of Emmanuel

One of our pastors had a chat with Raphael. He shared that he’s saved but hasn’t been close to God lately. But — he’d like to change that! And Emmanuel? “What I know is that he goes to church,” our pastor said. This is a good start to Emmanuel knowing Jesus. And you know what else is? Emmanuel’s times in the playroom! These are golden opportunities not only for play, but also conversations between our pastors and our kiddos! Please pray that every opportunity that our pastors have in the playroom, be it with Emmanuel or another patient, would be used to God’s glory and to share Jesus! Photo of Emmanuel

We know after Emmanuel’s surgery tomorrow, he’ll need some extra TLC as he recovers. His leg will be in a cast, he’ll need someone to bring him food, and he’ll need some extra snoozes to help him heal. Thankfully - Emmanuel is in good hands with Raphael and he’ll be by his side whatever this week holds! Pray this week holds many good things for both of these guys! Photo of Emmanuel
