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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Mussa's family lives just less than an hour away from our CURE Hospital, but even with this short distance it was not enough for the family to hear about what we do here and to have hope for their son's healing. He has a left bowed tibia. Finally, they heard about CURE from a family who had one of their children treated at CURE and they recommended that Mussa be taken to our doctors. Mussas’s deformity started at the age two years old and even though he plays a lot, he always complains of pains in the evenings, and walking long distances are very difficult for him. Mussa's mother Emily is happy to be accommodated at CURE and she calls the healing process "the head on collision with treatment.” We agree! Sometimes there's pain in the process, but we're thankful that they have made it here and that Mussa is on his way to straight legs!

Mussa came in for some therapy again today, and again, physio Dianna said he's doing great! We asked how his walking is and she said, "He's walking, running around, and he didn't want to get off the bike to do his stretches!" We'll see him again at the end of January! Photo of Mussa

Mussa's back for some physiotherapy and Physio Dianna says he's doing really well and will be back in a month. His mom says he's much better and things are working out well with the physiotherapy exercises he was sent home with. Mommy Emily is so thankful and asks for your continued prayers! Photo of Mussa

Mussa is back again and this time we're better informed. His X-rays are looking really good and he'll just be coming back if he has pain or any other complaints. He hasn't been going to school and still has a little pain, so please be praying for those things! Photo of Mussa

Mussa came in for his checkup yesterday! He's doing well and had his cast off. His notes don't say when he'll next be back, but it will probably be in a few months. Please continue to pray for him! Photo of Mussa

Our buddy Mussa was having a lot of fun with balloons that the nurses blew up for all the kids on Friday afternoon! He's doing well today and gave us his signature smile - and more good news - he's going home! He'll be back on July 10th for a checkup and will continue on medication to hopefully help his bones!

Mussa's operation yesterday went well! Dr. Christy and Dr. Karolina cut his femur to make it straight and then put a rushrod through the bone to keep it in position. Unfortunately, by the time they were done, the cast was a bit out of shape which wouldn't have been good to make the bone heal straight, so they needed to re-do it today in theater. We can report that he's already out again and recovering! Thanks for keeping him in your prayers! Photo of Mussa

Mussa was super enjoying the playground last night before his operation this morning - we're glad he got to run around outside with the other boys a bit before he gets stuck with a cast for a while! Please be praying for him as he has surgery today, we'll let you know how it went tomorrow and post a photo of his operation! Photo of Mussa

Meet Mussa! Mussa is a little boy who's already been in our hospital a couple times for his leg condition, and will be having another operation tomorrow! He has some sort of bone condition, and the doctor's are trying to narrow down what it is - he's been put on calcium and vitamin D supplements which usually helps with conditions like this, but if his bones don't respond, then he has a rarer type of disorder and will need to have multiple surgeries to keep his legs straight while he matures. For now, he'll be having a rush rod put into his bowed right femur tomorrow to make it straight - please be praying for him and his mom Emily! Photo of Mussa
