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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Wendy, a 12-year-old girl was born healthy with no complications whatsoever. And she has lived a blessed life with her family surrounding her. That is until last year.

“She came to me one morning and complained of pain in her left knee. I didn’t think much of it at first, but when I noticed she was moving slower and taking longer to run her errands, I became concerned." her mother Rosemary told us. Upon further investigation, they noticed that Wendy's left leg was curving outwards.

Wendy and her family live near Mt. Kenya (the second highest mountain in Africa), which means the terrain is very steep and hilly. Even simple errands like fetching water or going to the shop require significant climbing and strenuous walking. Frustrated, Wendy has been getting slower and slower due to the now constant pain her leg is causing her.

Thankfully, Rosemary was aware of our CURE Kenya mobile clinics which have been operating in their area for years now. This past February, Rosemary brought Wendy to be seen by our medical staff. We were able to share with Wendy that her leg is treatable with surgery and she is now here at our hospital!

Dreaming of the future, Wendy tells us “The moment I’ll be healed, I want to climb Mt. Kenya! I can see it from our house so why not!” When she walks out our doors with a straight leg and her pain gone, these mountain peaks will no longer be just a dream for Wendy!

Today was a pretty rough day for Wendy. It was her first day of physical therapy and it can be a little tricky at the start. Our physical therapist Onesmus hooked her up with a walker and was showing her some tricks to help her get around while her leg is in a cast. It was a bit uncomfortable but she managed to do a lap around the ward all on her own. We are praying for a steady recovery for Wendy. Photo of Wendy

We thank God for Wendy's successful surgery. She got out of the OR quite late and she slept right away. She did wake up for Rosemary to help her eat some porridge so she can get her strength back. Wendy told us that she doesn't feel any pain in her knee despite it being numb since she's on some painkillers. Her mother was grateful and happy that her daughter came out of the surgery well. Please thank God with us for the progress she has made so far! Photo of Wendy
