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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Albanus's Story

Meet Albanus, a 6 year old boy who is the 6th born in a big family of 7 children! Albanus is in nursery school but he lives at a children’s home which is closer to school than his home. His mum sells vegetables by the roadside. Some of Albanus’ elder siblings also stay at the children’s home during holidays and in boarding school during the school calendar year.

At the time when Albanus was born, his mother had some home problems with Albanus’ dad. She eventually decided to leave with the kids and set up camp somewhere else. Life wasn’t very easy at that time so she didn’t pay much attention to Albanus’ extra digit that he was born with. Much later when Albanus was older, she realized that his extra digit was growing bigger and becoming more dangerous.

Agnes, Albanus’ mum was told by the person running the children’s home, that there was a possibility her son would need surgery to get rid of the extra digit. That is where she learned about CURE Kenya. Agnes brought her son with very high hopes that this extra digit would be removed and that it will be a thing of the past. “My desire is that this extra finger can be removed because it has the potential to cause him so much pain if he stumbles and falls on it!” Agnes told us.

“Mum, where is my extra finger?” Agnes told us what Albanus asked her. Albanus must have tried to move his extra finger but he couldn’t feel it. So he was concerned and decided to ask his mother what happened. His mum explained that it was removed in theatre and that it won’t bother him anymore. Albanus is totally OK with it and is going home today. We thank God for his treatment and we hope for a smooth healing and recovery! Photo of Albanus

Here is a smile to cheer you up today. Albanus had surgery to remove his extra digit and that went well. This morning, his mum was doing laundry when we found him resting in bed. We asked Albanus how his night was, “It was okay!” He told us. Please pray for healing for Albanus’ hand. Photo of Albanus

"Our prayers may be awkward. Our attempts may be feeble, but since the power of prayer is in the one who hears it and not in the one who says it, prayers do make a difference." At CURE, we believe that prayers make a huge difference, and that's why we begin everything with prayer. Dr. Nyambati holds the hand of Albanus as he prays for a successful surgery. Photo of Albanus

Albanus and his mum Agnus were basking out in the morning sun today as they learned the geography of this new place they are now in at CURE Kenya. Albanus wants to be a bus driver when he grows up so he can travel to many places and see many things! Photo of Albanus
