The CURE Hospital in Malawi

The picture above is of the CURE hospital in Malawi. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE Malawi 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 Tamandani. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Tamandani and kids like him. When you give a gift through Tamandani's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in Malawi, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in Malawi. 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 Tamandani. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

I wouldn’t say it’s very common anywhere, to hear stories about people being burned by battery acid, but of course anything is possible, especially in Africa. One-year-old Tamandani Phiri is one of the few who can say he was burned in exactly that way. A cell phone battery was on its charger when it exploded, exposing the acid. Tamandani went exploring and found the acid, and like little kids do, he put his left and in it. Now his hand is unusable, as his pointer and middle finger are fused to his palm. Thank goodness he came to CURE because we know just how to handle that!

Tamandani's case is complete - Tamandani had his cast taken off last month and he has exhibited a major change in what his situation was previously. He has a much greater range of motion than he did before, and he can use his fingers to hold things now, which he couldn't do previously. His parents and his community are very grateful for all CURE had done, and we are grateful to you for being a part of it!
