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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Immanuel's Story

“My son has to go to school on alternate days because he gets very tired of walking and sometimes he comes back with really bad injuries from falling while trying to play with his friends.” Monica explained to us.

“My son has to go to school on alternate days because he gets very tired of walking and sometimes he comes back with really bad injuries from falling while trying to play with his friends.” Monica explained to us.

Immanuel is the third born in a family of 4 children. He was born with cerebral palsy which affected both his right hand and leg. His mum noticed he had a problem. When he made his very first attempt to walk. He kept falling down but the mum thought that it was because he was still very young. Immanuel grew a bit bigger but the falling didn’t go away. This is when the mum became more concerned about the problem.

Monica started seeking for medical intervention and was introduced to physiotherapy. She notes that the process was quite tiring and did not bear much fruit. Immanuel was able to use his hand a bit but the more he grew the more he walked on his toes.

CURE Kenya conducts mobile clinics at the hospital where she used to take Immanuel and one day she saw a poster about and upcoming mobile clinic. She brought Immanuel and was advised that Immanuel’s leg would need a surgical procedure to correct. She was asked to go home and wait to be called about a day she would bring her son to come have surgery.

Immanuel is now here and his mum remains very optimistic that her son will be healed and that he won’t fall anymore at school after the surgery.

Immanuel’s procedure wasn’t very complex. It involved releasing some tight muscles around his ankle to allow him to completely step down using his entire foot. We got to the OR and found the doctor and nurse applying a cast so that Immaneul’s leg can remain in the correct position as it heals. Immanuel will not stay in CURE Kenya very long, he might even be discharged tomorrow! Please thank God for all He has done so far. Photo of Immanuel

As Immanuel was up and about, we spent a few minutes catching up with his mum. She told us that she goes to church every Sunday and believes in God. “Although I am not a member of the women's fellowship at church, I go every Sunday and listen to every preaching.” Monica told us. Please join Monica and us as we pray for a successful procedure for Immanuel! Photo of Immanuel
