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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Naomi's Story

“I felt a lot of pain in my heart. If it was in my power, she would already be healed.” Naomi's dad, Kabutin, told us.

“I felt a lot of pain in my heart. If it was in my power, she would already be healed.” Naomi's dad, Kabutin, told us.

Naomi is an 11 year old girl who was born just like every other kid. She is the seventh born child in a family of ten. At two years old, she came down with malaria and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. She got the meds and everything seemed fine, but a few months later, her dad noticed that Naomi’s walking style had changed. She seemed to be struggling to move and this was cause for concern.

Kabutin took his daughter to a health center near their home. Since they live in a very remote area, it was hard to be seen by a doctor and they ended up seeing a health officer instead. Kabutin was told that there was nothing to worry about despite the fact that he could see her daughter’s foot was dropping into a permanent tip-toe position. He went home disappointed and frustrated there was nothing he could do.

Naomi would regularly complain of pain in her leg as she walked and this wore heavy on Kabutin. When Naomi turned five, Kabutin decided to take her to a different hospital. After examination, she was given a few drugs and asked to wait for the condition to correct itself. Even with meds and time, nothing really changed. Kabutin gave up on looking for help. Naomi joined school, but she really struggled to walk to school or play with her friends.

Thankfully, the area chief told Kabutin about a CURE Kenya mobile clinic that was to be in their home town. Daring to hope once more, Kabutin made the arrangements to bring Naomi to the mobile clinic. When she was seen, it was made clear to Kabutin that Naomi needed surgery. Kabutin knew he couldn't afford the surgery, but when he was asked to just find transport and come to CURE Kenya, he knew this could very well be the best time of his life. “I have seen a girl who was at CURE Kenya and is now healed and I know in my heart that my daughter will also be healed,” Kabutin told us a hopeful smile forming on his face. Now, Kabutin and Naomi are both here and are both looking forward to the transformation Naomi is about to experience. Please pray for Naomi’s procedure that it will go well and that their heart’s desires will be fulfilled!

Naomi may have left CURE Kenya over the weekend and taken her cute smile with her, but thankfully it is forever frozen in our photographs! The next time we get to see this smile in person will be when we see her on one of our mobile clinic in just a few weeks. Hooray for that! Photo of Naomi

Naomi’s smile is one that says, ‘Despite the pain, God remains faithful and gives me joy!’ This morning, we were able to interact with Naomi a bit and she was very excited at the prospect of going home tomorrow. Although her movements are a bit limited by her cast, she knows that sooner rather than later she will be back on her feet. Please pray for Naomi and her dad as they wait to hear if they can go home and if they do, that God will give them safe travels. Photo of Naomi

“I just told her to trust in God and God will do marvelous things in her life,” Anastacia our spiritual intern told us about a conversation she had with Naomi. Naomi does go to church, but she hasn't yet accepted Christ as her Savior. That all changed when Anastacia talked to her, prayed with her, and encouraged her to trust God! Thank Jesus with us for saving this sweet little lady and pray that over time, she’ll come to know Him and love Him better and better! Photo of Naomi

When we peeked into Naomi’s blanket covered face this morning and we were greeted by her sweet face. She soon fully emerged to drink some tea from a cup that matched her new teddy (given to her by one of our partners). She’ll go for a cast change tomorrow since her cast was split to relieve the pressure caused by some swelling. Once that's done, she and her teddy should be on their way home! Photo of Naomi

Naomi went to the OR and her surgery was successful! As the doctors were operating and talking during her surgery, we were able to see just how much correction was already visible from the first few minutes of her surgery. We are super grateful to God for doctors who are devoted to helping kids like Naomi and for people like you who keep praying for the kids we serve. Photo of Naomi

Swinging outside and playing in the playroom were among the things Naomi did today as she waited for surgery. Not eating is hard, but it’s important to fast before surgery since going under anesthesia with something in your stomach can be incredibly dangerous. Either way, not eating didn’t keep the Naomi smiles away. Naomi’s smiles come especially when you make her laugh. She’s got joy and she is a joy! Pray for her! Photo of Naomi
