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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Scolastica's Story

"Scolastica is always in long sleeved clothes so she can hide her arm from people with prying eyes." Eunice, Scolastica's mom, tells us.

Scolastica is a lover of science and in 8th Grade. She has decided to study hard and wants to become an orthopedic surgeon to treat other kids with conditions like hers. Eunice tells us that Scolastica's wrist started to curve outward when Scolastica was just two years old. She still learned to use her wrist and even to write, but she's slower than others. "Sometimes she complains of wrist pain especially when she's writing essays." Eunice shared.

Eunice was eventually able to take Scolastica to a mission hospital 40 miles from their home. It was there they were referred to CURE Kenya for more specialized treatment. Eager to see her daughter get healed and having waited for so long, Eunice gathered the transport money they needed and made the trip here. Now they are with us and thanking God for giving them an opportunity to change the course of their lives for the better!

We managed to gift Scolastica a teddy bear to keep her company as she prepares to continue her recovery at home. She was blushing after seeing it since she has never had something like this before. The doctors confirmed she is doing well and discharged her with some advice on the ways to keep her wrist in a better healing position. Scolastica is going home to her father and her siblings! We shared with her the get well messages you've been sending and she expressed her sincere gratitude! Photo of Scolastica

Scolastica was at the ward window near her bed enjoying some sunshine after a delicious meal of chapati (flat bread) with lentils for lunch. She has learned to use her left hand as she waits for her right one to heal completely! Her confidence has really gone up after the surgery and she has been making friends with some of the other girls in her ward section. Scolastica will be checked again by our doctors tomorrow to advice on the type of exercises suitable for her recovery. Photo of Scolastica

The doctors performed a procedure on Scolastica's right wrist that lengthened her ulna bone (wrist front bone) and her radial head (wrist lower bone head that enables the twisting motion) was brought down to the normal position. Some screws and pins were used to hold the lengthened bone in place as the wound was being closed. We thank you for your prayers and get well messages you've been sending Scolastica's way.

Because of her deformity, Scolastica never goes out without a long sleeve sweater or shirt as it helps her hide her arm. She has also gotten used to hiding her hand behind her back and looking away whenever she meets people. Scolastica and her mother were walking back to the ward after busking in the sun. She is continuing with her fluid diet in preparation for her surgery. Please join us in praying and support for Scolastica and her mom Eunice during their time at CURE Kenya! Photo of Scolastica
