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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Beldine is a 15 year old girl who is in form three and is Irene’s 5th born child. She wants to be a news reporter when she is done with school.

Beldine was not born with any form of deformity according to Irene, her mum. She was born normal and it was exciting for her parents to see her go through most of her milestones growing up. Just like other kids, Beldine played with her siblings and assisted at home with chores. At some point, her mum noticed that her legs had started bowing. She did not do anything immediately because Beldine wasn’t in any pain.

Beldine’s problem got even worse and that’s where Irene and her husband decided that it was time for Beldine to be seen by a doctor. When they took her to hospital, they began the correction process through casting. Nothing was improving and so it was decided that Beldine needed surgery. The dad wanted surgery for both her legs to be done at the same time but the doctors thought that it wouldn’t be advisable to do that. Beldine’s left leg got corrected properly but she had to wait 6 years for the next surgery to be done.

Irene and her husband took their daughter to recover at home. Six years later, the person who made it possible for Beldine’s surgery to be done was no longer reachable. This left the family hopeless with nothing to do about their daughter’s treatment. A few years later, someone told baba Beldine about CURE Kenya and where to find us. “We were very happy to hear about CURE and so we tried our best to make it to the clinic location despite the distance.” Irene told us.

Irene has very high hopes that her daughter will be healed and that she will be normal again. They are at CURE Kenya now for Beldine’s surgery and we pray that God will meet all their prayer needs.

Beldine's father gave his wife his mobile phone so that he could reach her while she was at the hospital with Beldine. Today, we found Beldine speaking on the phone with her dad. She was trying to explain to him what was happening and seemed excited to be able to connect with him. Beldine is doing well! She is managing the pain and is looking forward to doing some physiotherapy. Photo of Beldine

Beldine went to the operating room quite late yesterday. Her surgery was successful, and she came back to the ward only to find a heavy cast wrapped around her leg. Beldine told us that last night was good because she rested but also bad because she was in pain. It is very hard to tell that she is hurting because she has a smile on her face most times. Beldine will be with us for a while before she can go home. Please continue to pray for healing for Beldine. Photo of Beldine
