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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I was so surprised when I saw other children with a condition like my son. It was also a relief because I knew I was not alone” shares Benson’s mother.

When Benson was 3 months old, a rural area medical mobile team visited his home and they told his parents to take Benson to a local hospital where he would get his first surgery. When Benson and his mom got to the local hospital, she was surprised to see other kids who also had cleft lip. It was a huge relief for her to see that her child was not the only one born with a cleft lip.

They were admitted at the local hospital but Benson’s mom was disappointed when the doctors told her that her son couldn’t get surgery for being underweight and weak. He got very sick at the hospital and needed to be put on IV fluids due to dehydration. Benson was given supplements and got sent home as they waited for a call.

Benson’s parents were later contacted to go back and Benson finally got his first surgery. They were released from the hospital soon after but before they got home, his cleft lip tore again. Benson’s mom was frustrated and decided to never take her son to the hospital again.

A few years later, Benson’s mom heard about a mobile clinic near her home. They were doctors from CURE Kenya who had come to see children with disabilities. During the clinic, Benson was scheduled to come to CURE Kenya where he found another hope for healing. Because of your help, Benson is now here accompanied by his dad awaiting surgery!

This was just a few minutes after Benson came back from the recovery area in the operating room. His dad was really impressed at big the difference he could already see after surgery. He was a bit concerned though that his son was in pain and kept encouraging him and comforting him. Please thank God with us for a successful surgery. Photo of Benson

Benson is waiting to have surgery soon. As he waits, he is trying to keep himself busy while exploring the hospital and meeting new friends. Although Benson is a bit shy, when he gets to know you, he becomes very comfortable and enjoys the time he spends with you. Photo of Benson

We visited Benson at his home a week before he came to CURE Kenya for surgery. Benson and his family live in a very rural area in a very humble home. However, this doesn’t make them less happy. Benson’s mom is very joyful and she loves to cheer Benson up all the time! Photo of Benson
