What am I giving to?

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

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Omega and kids like her. When you give a gift through Omega'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 Omega. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Unattended, Omega crawled towards an open fire in her house as her mother was out fetching water. Her father was also out of the house, looking for work. When her mother returned, she sat on the floor with a severely burned left hand. Omega’s fingers contracted and she wasn’t able to use her left hand. The family relied heavily on the father’s wages, so he had to save up in order to raise money for travel to CURE. Omega was burned almost two years ago. The CURE surgeons separated and released her fingers, and now we're praying for the healing to come!
