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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Meet Timothy a 15 year old boy who is the last born child in a family of 5. He was born normal and he grew okay up until he was about 4 years old where his family started noticing that something was wrong with the way he was walking. Timothy is at CURE Kenya with his brother. His brother was among the first people to notice that Timothy was not completely okay. He was taken to a hospital about 1 hour 30 minutes away from home and was told that they would be casting him for a while.

A few weeks after applying several casts, nothing changed. The family decided to stop seeking for help. Before they discontinued clinic, they were told that the only way to fix Timothy’s leg would be through surgery. This made them shy away the more. Timothy learned how to walk with his left leg bent awkwardly around the knee and that became his new normal.

Timothy is neighbour to a family that has been coming to CURE Kenya for treatment. In fact, the dad to a little girl who was treated here and is almost completing her treatment told Timothy and his family about CURE Kenya. He brought them to a mobile clinic near their town and they were able to see a doctor. Timothy’s brother was told about the need for surgery and was told to go home and wait to be called to bring his brother to the hospital.

Just like the first time, they went home hopeless, thinking that this was another dead end because they didn’t have money. The only thing that was different this time was that someone so close to them had experienced transformational surgery and it gave them hope. A few weeks later Timothy’s brother was called and told to bring Timothy to CURE Kenya. They are here now and are very grateful to God. “We have great faith that we will be treated and that Timothy will be healed.” Timothy’s brother told us. Please be praying with us for Timothy’s procedure to be a success and that the recovery process goes well.

Yesterday, we had a little Christmas celebration in the ward! There was a skit from the story of Jesus’ birth, singing, and CAKE!!! Timothy’s cast may have made it hard to get up, but he didn’t miss out on the cake or even the soda. Today, he is playing with a balloon with a friend in the bed next to him. We’re glad that although he can’t leave his bed quite yet, he can still have some fun! Photo of Timothy

It's been a hard day for our friend Timothy because of after surgery pain. We are praying that God takes away the pain and makes him smile again very soon. Timothy's brother is here taking care of him and that is making the process a bit easier to handle. Photo of Timothy

Timothy went to the operating room today. Even before a cast was applied to Timothy’s leg, you could see the transformation through surgery. The doctor showed us how far Timothy will be able to bend his knee, and he took us through the process that will enable him to achieve at least 90 degrees flexion. This is exciting! Please thank God with us for this. Photo of Timothy
