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

We need to raise approximately $400 to treat children like Frank. When you give a gift through Frank'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 Frank. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Little Frank was born with clubfoot. I brought him here at CURE after being referred to by the hospital where he was born. He was only three days old then. I was told to go back home and wait until he grows a little more. He is now two months old and that’s why am here at CURE. I believe my son will be fine because one of his uncles from my husband’s side was also born with the disability and he got treated here at CURE. He is now able to wear shoes and walk very well. I am very confident enough that my son will be well again just like his uncle. I so much like how I was welcomed here at CURE. The welcome itself was so encouraging to me,” says Mercy, Frank’s mother.

"I'm not using the chitenge (African fabric) to hold Frank on my back because he keeps standing up in it!" Mercy says while Sungi, who works upstairs and was passing by and helped to strap him in. Frank came in for a checkup today and is doing well! Mercy says, "I'm happy. His foot is much better than it was before. I would encourage those who are helping to pay for Frank's treatment to continue to do so for other children so they can have the same help. All I can say is thank you." Photo of Frank

Frank and Mercy were back again today! Here she is outside soaking the cast off his foot in some warm water. His foot is looking good and now he's in the braces stage of treatment where he has to wear special boots every day for several months and will eventually switch to only wearing them at night until he reaches the age of five. We'll see him again next week when he comes in for a quick checkup! Photo of Frank

Ooops! Last week we missed that Frank ended up having his tenotomy! A tenotomy is a small surgery under local anesthesia where one of our doctors cut and make a little nick in the back of the heel to lengthen the Achilles tendon. This means he won't be back until next week, when he will have his casts off and be fitted with braces. Please continue praying for him and Mercy! Photo of Frank

Meet Frank and his mother Mercy! Frank has clubfoot on his right foot which is going to be treated with ponseti, a method of casting over the course of several weeks which will slowly turn the baby's foot straight.
