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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Trying to stay warm by an open fire last year, Wiston was burned badly on his left arm. The skin at the wrist and elbow has contracted and Wiston has very limited function in the entire arm. He is third born and the youngest child in his family. He lives in a very remote part of the country, where his family is supported by domestic farming, and it was only by the district hospital's referral that Wiston's family even heard about CURE. The surgeons plan to release the wrist and elbow contractures, which will require a couple skin grafts. Thankfully he isn't missing school, because he won't enroll in nursery school until next year, so we're hoping to give him the best start to an education as possible.

Wiston Kevas was discharged from CURE Malawi and is scheduled for a future follow up appointment at his home hospital in Salima on July 22. We will check in with him around that date and make sure the recovery process is still going smoothly. Learn more at http://bit.ly/13wONIK http://bit.ly/10l4TF5 Photo of Wiston

Wiston is recovering from a wound inspection yesterday. The doctors decided that it was best to check the wound in theater, for it would be too uncomfortable for Wiston without anathesia. During ward rounds this morning, the CURE doctors discussed discharge tomorrow since the wound is healing perfectly. Photo of Wiston

The amount of energy that Wiston possesses is incredible. He doesn't stop - EVER. We delivered a 'get well' message to him this afternoon and we got him to pause for a second to get a picture. We love this little man. Photo of Wiston

Wiston is our shadow. This little guy doesn't leave the side of CUREkids staff during the day. He is waiting for his wound to be inspected this week to see how the skin graph is healing. Check out the collage of his surgery pics. http://bit.ly/15cMc4y Photo of Wiston

He's ready, tomorrow is the big day! It looks like Wiston will need multiple procedures to get his left arm fully functional again. First, the surgeons will release his wrist which is in a permanently flexed position. We will be there by his side in the operation room tomorrow.

If this little guy isn't dancing in the ward, he's following us around the hospital. He's warmed up to the CUREkids staff quickly and runs into our arms when we enter the ward. He arrived at CURE with a cough, so he has yet to be cleared for surgery. Hopefully, he will be healthy enough later this week. Photo of Wiston
