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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Maliana's Story

“Walking in CURE corridors, I was really nervous and had no idea what the doctors will say. I have been in a few health centers for help, but have been turned down. It seem like no wanted to help my daughter. It was really hard for me as a mother,” shared Maliana’s mother, Fungisai.
Maliana is the second born child of three children in her family and the only child who was born with a deformity. When her parents took her to the hospital, Fungisai told us that it was the same story - that they had to go home and come back after a month or so. “If I was told why my daughter Malaina was being told to wait it could have been better, I could have hope that Malaina will be treated. My hope was fading away and my patience was not building up,” explained Fungisai.
Maliana would ask her mother why does she have such fingers, melted together. It is a question that Fungisai had to answer, but it was not easy since she could not find an answer for her daughter Maliana.
“One day I took Malaina to the hospital because she had some fevers. There, I was told about CURE! I had never heard about CURE. I was not sure if I wanted to go, but I became so encouraged when I heard a few people recommending me to try our CURE,” said Fungisai.
In addition to what Fungisai told us, she shared a bit of her experience here at CURE. “I have a testimony on how CURE has treated us, with respect. You have given me hope that Maliana will definitely be well,” said Fungisai.
Fungisai has hoped that her daughter will be well by seeing and hearing the stories from other parents in hospital. Join us in praying for Maliana and her mother Fungisai as our doctors are planning to operate on her daughter to separate the fingers that are conjoined together since birth!

Our lovely little lady Maliana was eating some kwacha today - silly Maliana, money isn't for eating! She held her hand out to me and I joked that I could buy my mandasi (fried donuts) now and the moms all thought that was really funny. Despite the fact they can't understand much English, they did understand mandasi. Maliana will be going home since she lives nearby and will be coming back for another wound inspection next week. Thank you for continuing to pray for Maliana while she heals! Photo of Maliana
