CURE in Malawi

The picture above is of CURE in Malawi. Everyone who serves with CURE in Malawi, 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 Hope. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Hope. When you give a gift through Hope's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like 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 Hope. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Hope’s parents were absolutely thrilled when they learned that they were being blessed with a baby boy. The joy after his birth was short lived as they were told by doctors that Hope had a bilateral clubfoot condition. Worry set in and many supporters of the family rallied around them and prayed night and day for Hope.

A group of supporters visited the Makata home and informed them about CURE and the Clubfoot Clinic providing first class treatment for infants. The mother remained to have little faith in doctors providing a cure for Hope since her medical experiences have been less than helpful. But she showed up on Thursday with Hope, a precious baby boy with big bold eyes.

Hope was very cooperative and was casted on both legs. He will return next week to chart progress and see if he’s ready for the next step in clubfoot treatment. Please pray for Hope and his parents.

So last week was supposed to be Hope's final visit, but the physical therapist still saw a slight problem. The brace he had been wearing didn't quite finish the job, so to air on the safe side, he's been asked to wear the brace just a few more months. We're set to see him in April, and we're praying that at last, his feet will be ready to go! Thanks so much for the prayers!

Hope is a quiet baby boy that can't stay focused on one thing for too long. Hope's big beautiful eyes scanned the plaster room full of other infants, mothers and nurses. Hope's condition can be treated with a routine of casting and bracing both feet. Pray for this little guy, he's only 6 weeks old. http://bit.ly/P7ZtIe Photo of Hope
