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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Imagine you’re a mama. You have a three-week-old baby. You’re probably still feeling some effects of giving birth, but you’re also enjoying snuggles and loves coming from your new baby. And then one day, your house catches fire with that three-week-old snuggly baby inside it. You rush in, feeling the effects of the fire. But it doesn’t matter: your baby is inside! You find her, pick her up, and rush her to safety outside.

We don’t have every detail of the day, but something similar happened to Jacqueline, Faith’s mother. One day she found herself in this situation, and that’s what has brought her and her daughter, Faith, to CURE Kenya. Faith is now nine years old with a burn contracture on her hand, sustained from that house fire all those years ago.

We were told that Faith received treatment when she was around six, though we’re not sure exactly how much treatment she received. And then one day, her mom heard about a CURE Kenya mobile clinic coming to a nearby hospital and they came. “Were you happy?” we asked Jacqueline about when she heard Faith could have surgery. We received a smile, a nod, and a little ‘yeah.’ We’re happy too! Please pray for Faith, that this surgery will be all that she needs to have more function in her hands!

We got ourselves a big hug from this one when we saw her today! She came for a checkup. She’s going to need another procedure, so that’s what’s next on her radar. Please pray for her as she gets ready for that! Photo of Faith

We didn't catch Faith the last time she came to CURE Kenya for a checkup, but the good news is that one -- she came, and two -- she did some rehab for her fingers! Pray for her until she comes at the end of this month!

After our sweet Faith's visit to theatre, the doctor decided that it was best to wait a bit before starting physio. Faith still has a bit more healing to do which should happen over the next couple weeks until we see her again on May 8th. Please pray for the healing to happen so that she can proceed with physio when she comes!

Faith and her mom did the theatre waiting bay march this morning. Apparently she’s going for that dressing change today (not earlier in the week like we’d said). Faith’s enthusiasm of yesterday was replaced today by somberness, possibly a mixture of hunger and nerves. Faith will have her pins removed along with the dressing change. We’re excited to see her continued progress over the next weeks and months! Please pray for her continued journey of physio and healing! Photo of Faith

We caught Faith and her mama walking down the hallway toward their ward and when we called out, Faith turned around and came toward us. She let us stop her for photos, but once those were over, she gave us such a huge hug -- the two arm kind. Faith is a sweet girl and we wonder what kind of marvelous hug we would have gotten if we hadn’t stopped her! Either yesterday or today, it seems she received her dressing change, so now she’s ready to have some physio done on her hand to help her maintain the correction achieved on her healing journey in theatre. Thank you for your continued prayers for her! Photo of Faith

Somebody has returned to continue her healing journey! Faith came - with her mama - for a dressing change. This should happen tomorrow, so in the meantime, Faith can hang out and hopefully spend time playing and socializing to pass the time. Please pray for her! Photo of Faith

Faith’s smile must come from her mama -- can you see those two lovely smiles? Faith had a dressing change done at the nursing station instead of the OR and she looks good enough to go home over the weekend! We also shared get well messages with these two through a dad in the ward helping us translate. So -- keep on with those smiles, Faith and Jacqueline, cause those are two very good reasons to smile! Please pray for them as they travel and we’ll catch them in just a few weeks! Photo of Faith

Someone was snoozing when we walked into her ward cube, but it wasn’t long before we looked over and caught her with the biggest smile. Faith has a reason to smile too: tomorrow she goes to the OR to have her surgery site checked! Please pray all goes well and that the results of Faith’s visit to the OR keep her smiling!

Dr. Kinyua operated on Monday and has made it so that now our girl can have more function in her hands. She should be able to bend at least some of her fingers better and this is wonderful when it comes to doing things like gripping! Now you can pray for zero complications as Faith’s body works God’s healing miracles on it! Photo of Faith

‘Pop!’ That was the sound that could be heard in the ward this morning and may have been the reason for the expression on Lucy, Faith's nurse’s face. A balloon had popped! Lucy couldn’t help but smile about it or maybe it was her reaction to the startling sound. We’re not sure what Faith herself thought of the sound, but since she’s stuck in bed, maybe the excitement was nice! Lucy told us Faith is doing well too. We’re hoping in the next day or two, she’ll be able to get up and move around once her arm has been elevated for some time. Pray that she won’t be stuck in bed for too much longer! Photo of Faith

Mar 25, 2019

As we chatted with Faith’s mama and other mamas from the ward, we found out that Faith is a bright girl. Her mom even wants her to be a doctor someday. Well, from what we can see so far, Faith’s smile is definitely bright, so we can only imagine about the brightness behind that smile! Pray for her this week -- that she’ll be smiling bright even as she recovers! Photo of Faith
