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 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.

Diana's Story

“My daughter struggles with chores at home because one hand is not fully functional.” Mary, Diana’s mum told us.

Meet Diana, a 17 year old girl who wants to be a lawyer when she grows up. Diana is the second born in a family of three and is in Form 3 (11th Grade). The mother recalls noticing that her daughter’s hand had a problem when she started crawling at the age of 7 months. She couldn’t really put her left had completely flat on the ground or hold anything.

Concerned, Mary took her daughter to hospital where she was asked to put Diana under a physiotherapy program where she would need to go twice every week. Mary’s hand started improving because she went from only folding a fist to being able to stretch her fingers out. But when she got to a point where she needed to go school, there wasn’t really time to go to hospital so they stopped physiotherapy. Her hand regressed a bit.

A few months ago, Mary heard of CURE Kenya from a friend and even got information about a mobile clinic in her home town. She brought her daughter and they were told that she would need surgery to correct the deformity and at least give Diana’s hand some functionality.

“I really look forward to her transformation so that she can depend on herself in future and not need someone around every time.” Mary, Diana’s mum told us.

Look at that smile! Diana is going home today and she is very excited about this. Her mum too is happy that they can go home and rest. At this point (in the picture) Pastor Waweru was making fun of the time when Diana was in the OR and her mum was in the ward thinking about everything that was happening. It is usually easy to laugh about it way after the child has left the surgery and is okay but the few hours they are away in the OR can be tough. That is where our spiritual team comes in to encourage the mums/guardians. Photo of Diana

After lunch, the only thing that was left for Diana to do was to take a siesta. We found her sleeping so peacefully with her teddy bear by her side. We spoke to her mum a bit and she told us that the doctors were saying good things about Diana’s recovery. Diana and her mum could even leave for home tomorrow and we thank God for all He has done for these two this time they’ve been at CURE Kenya. Please continue praying for Diana’s recovery.

Diana was back in the ward and was resting when we caught up with her. She rested well and was catching up with her mum Mary after having lunch. Diana told us that she doesn't feel any pain but what is challenging her is getting used to walking with an arm sling everywhere for a few days as the doctors observe the healing process. Let's continue praying and supporting Diana and her mum as her recovery continues. Photo of Diana

The procedure on Diana's hand started with a word of prayer from our doctors in the OR. The wrist fusion procedure was done on her left hand. It joined the bones in her wrist to enable wrist flexing and a pin was put to hold it together during healing. We thank the Lord for a successful surgery that will hopefully help Diana achieve her dreams of becoming a lawyer! Photo of Diana

Diana and her mum are really good buddies and they enjoy laughing together. We are happy to be in their company and we pray that this week they will experience God’s love while at CURE Kenya! Photo of Diana
