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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"Her mother had prolonged labor and as a result, it caused Diana's feet to have a deformity from the thigh joint to the toes." Beth, Diana's auntie tells us.

Diana was born with a joint condition from birth and it caused her to start walking on her toes. Furthermore, the joint at the hip squeezed her pelvis and reduced her control of her bladder release muscles. This caused her mother sleepless nights and after a few clinic visits, she was advised to keep Diana in diapers until proper diagnosis was achieved.

Many years later, 10 year-old Diana still suffers from the same condition with no diagnosis. After visiting a county hospital, Diana was referred to CURE Kenya for comprehensive and specialized treatment. "Diana is a shy girl and rarely talks, but she has coped well despite the condition." Beth, her auntie tells us. The doctors agreed that the best treatment to start out with is corrective surgery at her hip joint to lower it so that she can have control of her bladder muscles, then later perform another one on her feet if they deem it necessary. Kindly join us in prayer for Diana and her family during their time at CURE Kenya.

Diana's procedure went well, and she was back in the ward. After resting, today she was able to stand and make a few steps around her ward aisle. Beth, Diana's auntie, has been encouraging her to be strong and prepare to be going home soon to see her 10-month-old baby brother. This has really motivated her to be positive and strive to practice using the walking appliances. Thank you for your prayers and support for Diana! Photo of Diana

Dr. Federico was sterilizing Diana's area of operation in the OR just before the procedure began. Diana's condition is a bilateral (both feet) equinus foot deformity, a condition of the foot and ankle where the foot is held in a downward position that makes it difficult for Diana to pull the ankle and foot up. The procedure will involve lengthening of the Achilles tendon so that the ankle can rest on the ground in its natural position. Kindly join us in prayer for a seamless procedure. Photo of Diana

Diana's procedure was scheduled for today since yesterday was a national holiday in Kenya. Thankfully, her procedure is not complicated and we are glad that her journey towards healing is going as planned. Diana was with her auntie Beth in the OR waiting area ready to be cleared by our anesthetist. Diana's joy was written all over her face. Join us in prayer for Diana as she goes in for her procedure.
