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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Kiserian's Story

Kiserian lives with his grandma and two of his siblings. His grandma isn’t always well, and he doesn’t get to see his parents very often due to some family struggles. But, God is watching out for him and so is his Uncle Frank. Frank wants the best for Kiserian, but he’s currently looking for work, so money is scarce. Thankfully, Frank met a woman who knew about us here at CURE Kenya and was able to bring both Frank and Kiserian here to us.

You see, Kiserian's leg isn't growing properly. The two bones in the lower part of his leg are growing at different speeds which has caused his foot curve inwards. With the Kiserian, Uncle Frank, and Barbara, the doctors had the difficult conversation with them where they recommended the best way to move forward would be to amputate Kiserian's leg beneath the knee. While this was not an easy decision for anyone involved, Kiserian understands that after the surgery he'll get a prosthetic leg and will be able to move better than he ever did before!

On top of all this, Kiserian's pinky finger on his left hand has developed in a strange way so the doctors are also going to reshape and reposition the finger to allow Kiserian more mobility and function.
There’s no perfect answer for any of these things, but we're excited that Kiserian is here for treatment and that he'll be able to move and function better once his treatment is finished!

Kiserian and Barbara were one of the first to see the doctor this morning, and Kiserian is making progress in his healing! His hand looks great, and he had his bandage removed. In a few weeks, the pin placed in his leg will be taken out too. Please pray for nothing but more healing for him! Photo of Kiserian

Wizard of Oz is a good distraction for an empty belly (since you're not allowed to eat before going into the OR) and a final morning spent in the hospital. After this and a trip to the OR for a dressing change, Kiserian was given the go ahead to go home! He’ll be back next month to check his progress. Pray for his continued healing! Photo of Kiserian

“I had an amazing night! My boy didn’t complain at all, so it was amazing.” Frank replied when we asked how his night was. Kiserian only complained maybe once last night, so all in all he’s doing well. Kiserian will go for one more dressing change on Monday and then he should be able to go home! In the meantime, him and Frank will watch movies and relax. Anything to distract Kiserian from the fact that he’s still in the hospital. He says ‘thank you’ for the get well messages too. Thanks for praying for and cheering this young boy on! Photo of Kiserian

“Have you heard about Jesus?” Pastor Emmy asked Kiserian on Monday during their counseling session. Kiserian does know about God, and he knows God is watching over him. Today Uncle Frank was around to talk care of Kiserian even as Kiserian went to the OR for a bandage change! We so hope Kiserian knows that God is watching over him even during his medical treatment!

Kiserian is still a little out of it from his surgery, but Pastor Emmy, who work with our kids here at CURE Kenya, tried her best to lift his spirits with a few little balloon crafts! Photo of Kiserian

As Kiserian was being prepped for sleep in the OR, Philis the nurse anesthetist was teasing him and putting a smile on his face. The doctors operated on his finger and amputated and his leg all in one big surgery. Things will be a little painful for Kiserian after surgery, but thankfully there are pain meds to help bring him comfort! Be praying for him as his body heals and as he adjusts to his new normal.

Anytime a decision is made to amputate, we ensure our patients are well prepared. A doctor talks with the guardian, ortho techs from our workshop make a visit to the patient, and one of our pastors takes the time to help the patient prepare for what’s to come. But, as much as an amputation is a big decision, whenever it’s made, it’s in the best interest of the patient and will in the long run make life better for them. We’re thankful this is the case for Kiserian! Photo of Kiserian
