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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Silas's Story

“I feed my children with the word of God before I feed them with anything else.” Lillian, Silas’ mum, told us as we were talking about faith and God with her today.

Silas is a 14-year-old boy and is the firstborn in a family of three kids who are raised to love the Lord. When Silas was born, his umbilical cord was cut the wrong way and he ended up getting a bad infection. His family attributes this infection to his current disability. Silas cannot walk without the aid of his stick as he struggles to balance and his feet are stuck in a permanent "tip-toe" like position. There wasn’t much Lillian could do at that time due to limited resources, so she fell back on her faith, constantly praying that Silas would one day be healed.

We asked Lillian about her faith. She told us that she is a Christian and she believes in God completely. She told us about the church she goes to and told us about the activities she participates in at church. We asked her if she takes Silas to church and she said "because of his disability it is very hard to walk with him all the way to church which is quite a distance from our home.”

Our prayer is that both Silas and Lillian will be able to walk to church together once we are done doing with Silas' corrective surgery. We're thankful for the way Lillian is raising this precious young man and his siblings. Please come aboard and pray with us for Silas and his sweet mum as they get started here with us at CURE Kenya!

Silas received his special braces and now he can move around and walk in them as they keep him steady. We are happy about this step Silas has taken in his recovery and we pray that God will help him see it through to completion. Please thank God with us for this far Silas has come! Photo of Silas

Sweet Silas is in need of special braces that reach even to his knees. By having them, they will help keep his knees extended so they don’t tighten up. Purity our ortho tech measured him for the braces today and when he comes back in September, he’ll get to pick them up! In the meantime, he’ll wear cast number two. Pray that walking will be easier for him when he receives his new braces! Photo of Silas

Silas got to go home, but not before getting to chat with Maria, a visitor from CURE partner churchWoodmen Valley Chapel. In this photo, she was showing him something fun on her phone. Later, she got to share more about Jesus with him. She told us that he is wanting physical healing, but he also knows he needs spiritual healing. Please pray for both! We’ll catch Silas again in September when we hope that the healing seeds planted here, both physical and spiritual ones, will have born some fruit! Photo of Silas

“Jesus gives me courage.” Rob had painted this on Silas’ cast this week. Rob is on a mission trip with a church that partners with CURE and has been spending time with Silas. In this photo, he was making snowflakes and he made one for Silas who got to color it afterwards. One of our pastors shared with us that Silas has some struggles in life, so we’re grateful for all of the time Rob and others have spent with him. Please pray for Silas to come to know the Jesus who died for all of his struggles! Photo of Silas

“Siwezi! ( I can’t do it)” Silas groaned to our physical therapist Alice who was showing him how to use his walker. “Unaweza, jaribu kidogo tu! (You can do it, just try!)” Alice encouraged him. Silas was able to take a few steps and it was impressive enough for Alice so she allowed him to go back to his bed and rest. Silas is literally making tremendous steps in his recovery and we are happy about this. Please thank God for the progress that Silas has made so far! Photo of Silas

Silas had a little post-op pain during the night, but he's doing well and is finally sleeping. We’re grateful for the sleeping he is getting to help his body rest and heal. Despite his struggles, the doctors say he should be able to head home in the next day or two and we’re grateful! Photo of Silas

Silas’ needed surgery on both of his legs which was perfect since we had both Dr. Mang’oli and Dr. Lunar operating. They were able to each operate on one of his legs which helped the surgery go faster. Silas needed some tendons released in his hips, knees, and ankles. This will help him stand up straighter. Please pray for him in these next days and weeks as he heals! Photo of Silas

Sometimes our physical therapists visit our patients even before surgery. For Silas, this was the case. Amos came to assess him and come up with a plan of attack. Right now Silas uses a stick in order to walk and Amos let him know that he'll be upgraded to a walker after surgery! We’re looking forward to seeing Silas' progress in the coming weeks and months!
