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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Leyne's Story

“I never took it as a serious issue,” Susan, Leyne’s mom told us. “These challenges bring you closer to God.” When Leyne was born with clubfoot, Susan saw it as an opportunity for spiritual growth! She also immediately started infant serial casting treatment which slowly but surely corrected his clubfoot. As is usual, Leyne eventually moved on to wearing braces on his feet. After being discharged from the clubfoot program, for a long while, Leyne seemed fine. But something has changed recently. “As he was playing with the rest of the children, he kept falling down,” Susan shared. She eventually discovered Leyne’s clubfoot has been returning. And when he wore sandals, Susan could see his foot was beginning to curve.

Susan and Leyne went back to the same hospital where they’d done casting a few years back, and they were told to see us here at CURE Kenya. We found Leyne's clubfoot was indeed coming back, but we shared the hope of treatment with both of them. Leyne is now at our hospital where he will have surgery on his right foot to sort things out once and for all. We’re thankful that he’s here and that Susan has been watching out for Leyne and also facing her challenges with God by her side!

Leyne got his cast removed, a brace measurement taken, and a new cast put on. He’s doing well and in another six weeks, the hard parts of his treatment should be over when he comes for his final cast removal and brace fitting!

Leyne is taking his Friday by storm! Do you see the determination in his eyes? He’ll take that determination as he heads home and spends the next few weeks walking on crutches! As he waited to go home, he also spent time listening to a spiritual conversation one of our pastors was having in the ward. Let’s see what he takes home from that too! Photo of Leyne

We sat and chatted with Leyne this morning and it is a pleasure to see him up and smiling. We asked him what he’d like to do when he grows up and is done with school. “I will do whatever work comes my way.” Leyne responded. This is a nice attitude and a nice way to approach life. We pray that God will give Leyne strength and the ability to do that. Please thank God with us for a day more pain free for Leyne. Photo of Leyne

One of the best ways for our kids to overcome their pain after surgery is through sleep. Leyne had his procedure yesterday and we expect him to spend most of today sleeping and recovering in his bed. Friends, could you kindly remember Leyne in your prayers? Ask God to give him a smooth recovery. Photo of Leyne

During Leyne’s surgery today, the doctors lengthened the tendons in his foot which should make stepping down even easier than it has been. They also transferred some tendons which will help pull his foot in the opposite direction from how it was turning. Now, as he heals, his foot will be more properly aligned. We’re looking forward to his complete healing! Photo of Leyne

“He’s ever happy!” Susan told us of Leyne. He likes playing football and riding bikes. And when we mentioned how shy he was being, Susan simply told us: “He likes making fun!” He really does and as we spend time with Leyne this week, we’ll get to experience that even more! Photo of Leyne
