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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

George's Story

“First of all, I was shocked and confused when the accident happened and so I was not very sure what to do immediately.” Anna, George’s mum told us.

Meet George, a 2 year old boy who is very jovial and loves his mum a lot. Anna’s first born and only child so far was playing in the house as his mother was boiling some milk. In a split second, the mother lost her concentration a bit and the next thing she heard was the sound of his son crying in agony and pain. When she turned around to see what had happened, she was shocked to see her son on the floor with hot milk all over his body. His left side was the most affected as he landed on it first.

George suffered serious burns on the left side of his body. Anna picked him up amid the crying and ran to her neighbour’s house to seek for help. Her neighbour helped rush them to hospital where George received first aid and treatment thereafter. Anna told us how difficult it was for her when she tried to remove George’s clothes. She couldn’t handle the burns and the pain she could see her son going through.

Anna and George stayed in hospital for almost two months and then they were discharged when George was deemed to be fine. After his wounds were healed, George was taken through physiotherapy to kind of assist him to reach full flexion on his left hand. But physiotherapy kept injuring him and so the mum decided to stop. During one of the physiotherapy sessions, someone mentioned CURE Kenya and told Anna to try and attend one of the mobile clinics in her home town. Anna brought her son and was told to bring her son to CURE Kenya for surgery.

George and his mum are here hoping for the best this week. Please pray that his procedure is successful.

After surgery, George wasn’t able to eat very well because he was still heavily sedated. His mum was stressed a bit, but she was encouraged to wait for the anesthetic to wear off completely. Today, George is up and feeding normally. As you can see, his mum is very excited about this and we thank God! George had a successful surgery and is now recovering in the ward. Please thank God with us for this. Photo of George

Today George was able to go to the OR for his operation! Before going in for the simple procedure to release his burns and help him to be able to fully extend his arm, we found George and his mum in the waiting area. George was all covered up to avoid the cold. We are happy for George’s chance to get an operation and we are asking you to thank God with us. Photo of George

George loves eating a lot and, in Kenya, that is considered a huge a blessing to a parent. George’s mum loves taking care of him and she takes a lot of pride from it. “I will be so happy to see my son able to use his hand to its full potential.” Anna told us. Photo of George
