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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Aisha's Story

“It is by the grace of God that my daughter Aisha is still alive today. Truly there is a living God up there. I thank God for the grace and mercies that He is showing me.” - Florence, Aisha’s mother.

In May last year, Aisha was playing with her friend, when a boy brought some burning grass to “play” with, and Aisha’s clothes caught fire! She ran screaming and Aisha’s friend was scared, desperately trying to put the fire out with a stick, but she was only three years old and couldn’t help. The two girls were crying when one of Florence’s friends happened to be passing by and heard them. She stopped the fire and immediately took Aisha to the hospital, calling Florence on the way, who came rushing to meet them.

At the hospital, they managed to treat the wounds on Aisha’s stomach, face, tongue and hand, but a few months later, when Aisha and her mother returned for a review, it was clear that her hand had contracted. She was referred to another hospital, where they met the CURE doctors who booked Aisha for surgery!

Aisha can’t carry heavy things using her left hand, and she can’t stretch her wrist, which is only a portion of the limitations a deformity like this causes. Aisha is the youngest in the family of five and her parents have their own business, which provides for the family. Now it's time for us to do our part to give Aisha back the use of her hand, and we pray the God blesses their time here!

We caught up with Aisha at her local clinic earlier this week! All is well with her hand, it's healing well and there are no signs of complications. Aisha isn't in any pain and she's able to hold her hand up high now! She'll continue getting the dressings changed at her local clinic, and we'll do our best to stay in touch with her from afar. Thanks heaps for all of your prayers and support for Aisha! Photo of Aisha

Aisha had the bandages taken off her hand this morning, and was in such fine spirits while she was waiting for the inspection, singing and laughing with us! After Dr Lubega inspected the wound he decided that Aisha is doing so well she can go home! The fingers are doing well, everything is healing nicely, and Aisha will go to a local clinic near where she lives to have the wires removed in two weeks. Thanks so much for your support for this precious girl, we're sad she's leaving us but so glad that she's doing well! Keep her in your prayers as she travels home with her mom, and as her fingers continue to heal. Thank you! Photo of Aisha

We're got a new colleague in the CUREkids office! We've set her to work, playing with plastic animals and drawing pictures. And she's really taken Casual Friday to the next level with those stickers. Maybe that's something all of us should consider taking up? Casual Sticker Fridays! Suffice to say, Aisha is having almost too much fun here! She's headed out again for the weekend, but will be back on Monday for another wound inspection. We'll update you then! Photo of Aisha

Mischevious Aisha is back in action! She loves having her photo taken, and chasing us around the hospital wherever we go! Her favourite playmate, Esnat, is recovering from surgery at the moment, but she's made plenty of other friends too. Here she is with Stewart and Tamara, having the best time! Photo of Aisha

This is the most still we've ever seen Aisha! We talked to her mom, Florence, about what they found when Aisha went to theater for her wound inspection yesterday, and the report is that Aisha's fingers are healing nicely with no sign of infection - excellent news! We're super thankful! Aisha and her mom will stay a while longer still, and Aisha is due to have another wound inspection this coming Monday. Keep praying for her as her little body keeps working hard for those fingers to heal! Photo of Aisha

Aisha is full of spunk and character, and is making the most of all the potential friends around the hospital! Her smile and cheekiness win everybody over. She and Esnat are a bit of a dynamic duo and you never see them far from each other. Aisha is scheduled to go to theater tomorrow for a wound inspection, so we'll find out then how her fingers are doing after the surgery last week. Stay posted for an update! Photo of Aisha

Aisha's mom is strong and kind. Full of love for Aisha and hope for her future. When Aisha is scared she comforts her, and when she's happy she rejoices. Such a beautiful example of love! These two are heading away for the weekend but will be back here on Monday to continue Aisha's treatment and care for her hand as healing happens. Keep them in your prayers! Photo of Aisha

Look at this face! Aisha is all smiles today. When we got out the bubble mixture she clapped her hands and giggled with glee. What a cute little munchkin she is, keeping our hearts happy with her joy. Suffice to say she is feeling fine after surgery yesterday, and isn't in any pain at all. Rad! Photo of Aisha

Jan 14, 2015

Yesterday Aisha went to theater to have her hand worked on. Her wrist is in a good position so we focused on the fingers, with the hope that she'll soon be able to make use of them again! Aisha was calm and quiet going in, but wriggled a fair amount when she was receiving the anesthetic. She's a bit of a feisty one! The surgery went well, Dr Lubega worked with his team and Aisha ended up with wires in her two little fingers. These act as a splint, which will stretch out her fingers and keep them straight. We'll update you soon on how she's doing post-surgery! Photo of Aisha
