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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Evelista is a beautiful daughter that God has blessed me with. I’m so happy to have such a charming and wonderful girl for a daughter. However, Evelista's legs are bowed. This has brought sadness in my life. Her friends laugh at her, and at times she would come home crying. This was really heart-breaking, but being a mother, I encouraged her not to worry. Even though I encouraged her, I never knew where to go or what to do with her condition until one day I met a friend who told me about CURE and what it does. I then decided to bring her here at CURE for help. I am so happy that I was received very well because I was afraid that I would be sent back since I just came straight without being referred by any hospital. My heart is now at peace knowing that I’m at the right place where my daughter will be healed and will no longer be laughed at. I have a great confidence in me that the devil will be put to shame because after operation, I know my child will be normal like any other person. I can say this because I have seen more conditions worse than my daughter’s being treated here at CURE and I don’t see any reason why my own should be different. Above all, I am so glad and happy with the doctor’s kindness, love, care and respect they have. I have never seen such doctors in many of the hospitals here. It’s my prayer that they will continue being so loving and caring because these are the most important things that patients wish to receive from people around them and it’s helpful in speeding up their recovery. May the good Lord bless CURE hospital with all that it needs to keep on providing free services to our poor children,” Elita, Evelista’s mother said with gratitude.

Evelista went home yesterday afternoon! She's doing well and just had her cast reinforced - and now it matches her shirt! She'll be back June 25th to have her cast off and a shoe raise. Please continue praying for her! Photo of Evelista

May 02, 2018

Evelista's surgery on Monday went well! Dr. Maina did an operation called a double-elevation osteotomy, which involves cutting the bones to make them straight, cutting a wedge right under the knee and lifting it up to make it straight, as well as putting bone graft in. Unfortunately, she will have a leg-length discrepancy and will most likely have a frame in the future to lengthen her leg so they're both the same. In the meantime, she'll have a shoe raise after her leg heals in a couple weeks! Photo of Evelista

Apr 30, 2018

Evelista is back! It looks as if her 8-plates weren't doing the job so Dr. Maina is having another go at it. This time she'll get a surgery to make the leg straight instead of relying on guided-growth techniques. Please pray for her as she has her operation today! Photo of Evelista

Dec 18, 2017

Evelista came in for a checkup today! "My daughter is now healed, she is now able to play with her friends and run, unlike before when she used to complain about her legs hurting. But since we were discharged from here, she can even ride a bicycle! I am so happy because the doctors have told me that she is responding well to the medicine and growth plates and her bone is now becoming straight. We will come for a check up next year in April for an X-ray, I believe she will be healed by then," says Elita, Evalista’s mom. Photo of Evelista

Evelista's back and we're loving her outfit today, she's always so fashionable! She doesn't have any pain and says she's able to do almost everything. She's really positive and dedicated to her exercises which helps with quick healing! Your prayers are helping too! Photo of Evelista

Evelista's here for a checkup! We'll see her again at clinic on September 25th for another check in with the doctors, but otherwise she looks like she's doing well. We'll probably see her a lot earlier than that for more physiotherapy though, since she keeps dropping in! Photo of Evelista

May 24, 2017

Evelista's back for some physiotherapy and will be here again on May 31st for some more! CUREkids Coordinator Funny asked her how she was doing and she just smiled really big! After some coaxing, she said sometimes she has pain, sometimes not - she slept on her leg wrong and had some pain after that but now it's better! Photo of Evelista

Evelista was already smiling yesterday right after her operation! We love all her different hairdos - it seems to change every other day! Please continue to be praying for her while she heals! Photo of Evelista

May 17, 2017

Evelista's surgery yesterday went well! Drs. Kyle, Christine and Karolina went in and did some soft tissue releases and put in some plates that will help slowly guide the bone into place while she grows - they stop the growth plate on one side so that the other can catch up, swinging around to make the leg straight. Please be praying for her while she heals! Hopefully, she will be able to go home Friday after some physiotherapy! Photo of Evelista

May 16, 2017

Meet Evelista (R), her friend Fabiola and one of the moms! Evelista's a sweet girl with Blounts disease and a lovely hairdo! She'll be having surgery later today for her legs, please be praying for her! She's been in and out of the hospital for a while because we needed to take an MRI of her knee to rule out some things, but now she's finally having her operation! Photo of Evelista
