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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Margret's Story

“One thing that I really want is to have straight legs, to be able to walk without pain and being talked by others about my condition, to live a normal life,” Margret shared with us.
Margret is here with her grandfather Fred who tells us that nothing pains him more than seeing his granddaughter Margret struggling to walk. Fred took Margret to live with his family so that he could find means to help Margret. When Margret was two years old, it was noticed that she developing an abnormal bend in both of her legs. Margret’s parents were so worried and had no idea what had caused their daughter to develop such condition.

“When I was told that Margret is not well, my first thought that came in my mind was to get her treated at our local hospital. I took Margret to the hospital where the doctors told us that my granddaughter has to wait. I was not happy to hear that. I had a lot of questions why Margret would not be treated at that time. I was told to go again after a few months but again, Margret was not treated. I was beginning to lose hope that Margret would ever get helped,” explained Fred.

Magret is schoolgirl and she is in grade five. “I feel pain when I walk and I love to play with my friends, but most times I am teased about my condition. This makes me not to interact in public. Most times I would take a lot of rests on my way home from school because of pain on my knees and feet,” Magret shared while telling us about her experience with blount's disease.

Margret was seen at a mobile clinic put on by CURE at a local hospital and she was booked to undergo an operation. “I know we have been here two days now, but one thing I am so grateful is how CURE is caring for us. I really like the living condition, we are provided with very nice blankets and hygienic meals,” said Fred. “I want to agree with my grandfather that this place is amazing. I love the toys in the playroom,” Margret added, agreeing with her grandfather.

We are so happy that we met Margret and her grandfather Fred. Margret and Fred both have so much hope for healing, we would love your help in support and in prayer for them!

Magret is doing well with physiotherapy. She says she is enjoying every moment of it and we are happy to hear that. "Doreen has been so helpful because she also has frames on both her legs like I do so it is becoming easy to do physiotherapy together with her. I am hopeful that soon I will be able to do them on my own," says Magret. It is great to have a friend who assists you in times like these and all thanks should go to God for giving Doreen such great courage! Thank you for all your prayers for these girls as they are getting better each day. Photo of Margret

Margret is doing really well and she is happy today. She says she is only feeling mild pain. We understand that the pain cannot fully go away at once for her healing to be complete. Our team from the physiotherapy has been assisting her and they have given her a "theraband" (green band on the foot) to avoid contracture and also for her feet to be in the right position to withstand the frames. Please continue keeping Margret in prayers as she continues with her treatment! Photo of Margret

Continue keeping this sweet girl in your prayers! Photo of Margret

Our friend Margret was already enjoying the playroom yesterday! The doctors consulted about her legs and decided since her blount's is so severe they would transfer her over to Dr. James, who will put a frame on her leg versus just doing cuts to the bone. Unfortunately, he's really busy this week and next, so she'll be coming back in two weeks for her surgery instead of having it done this week! Photo of Margret

Sep 04, 2017

Meet Margret! We made a short intro video to introduce her to you! She's just arrived at CURE Malawi and will be having surgery later this week for her bilateral blount's disease. Please be praying for her as she has her operation! https://youtu.be/9xHmobI5mf4
