What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Malita's Story

“The things that were breaking our family apart was that Malita couldn’t go to school. It was too crowded and kids would rush out of class and step on her. She couldn’t keep up. She had no future, but now we have hope she can go back to school and get her life on track,” Malita’s dad, Bokosi, shared Malita’s story with us, and how it has greatly impacted their family.

“She was born normal, but in 2014, she was out playing alone while her mom was working on the farm. A metal object pierced her leg from the side and it immediately began swelling. The swelling rose and it has been this way ever since. The situation is unexplainable; therefore we believe it must be witchcraft.”

Malita has come into our hospital this week with a deformed left leg, mainly her ankle and foot. She had a previous infection in 2014, and that same year had a sequestrectomy, which is the removal of dead spicules or portions of bone, at Nkhoma hospital near her village. The doctors plan to operate on her this week and will be placing a Taylor Spatial Frame (TSF) frame on her left leg to begin straightening her foot.

“We believe someone wished something evil over her, and we pray that it be removed since we don’t know where it has come from. Her friends are nice to her unless they get angry at each other, then they make fun of her disability and the parents have to get involved. Usually, it is okay,” Bokosi shared. He continued by telling us about how Malita’s disability has affected their family. “The biggest problem is that everything else stops because we needed to take care of her as a family. We all go to the hospital with her every time, so work stops, farming stops, and it becomes hard to provide.”

Bokosi says he found out about CURE Malawi from a CURE staff member he met at his local hospital, and that everything is as he expected, which makes him very happy. “When we were coming here, we put everything into God’s hands so that He works His blessings, and that even in the future Malita will stay blessed.” Bokosi is not only excited for Malita’s physical healing, but also her spiritual healing through the prayer and ministry offered here at CURE Malawi. “I pray that Malita and our family be protected against all witchcraft in the future and that anything evil from others be removed!”

Please keep Malita in your prayers as she receives both physical and spiritual healing at our hospital, and that God heal her in the very way He already has planned!

We found Malita playing a game of 'bawo' alone. It's a board game meant for two players. Malita seems to be doing great and her father, who is in the hospital with her, tells us she has been peaceful and hasn't been complaining about anything lately. Since progress is positive with Malita, the doctor says she has to be given pain meds only when she needs them and not as a daily dosage anymore. They will continue with daily care and they will do lengthening and they will start frame corrections today. Please pray for Malita so her healing is timely and also spiritual, thank you!

Malita is having a fantastic day! Her dad bought her an orange from the market and not only does she love eating it, but also playing with it! She peeled her slices and pretended they were a mustache, her mouth and her eyebrows. Malita says she really loves oranges, and we are glad to see she is keeping herself entertained, happy and filling her body with healthy food while she's staying in bed these days. Malita will be continuing her frame turns today and thanks you for keeping her in your prayers! Photo of Malita

Malita was in the operation room today for her first procedure today! The surgeons had three procedures to do on her while in there; osteotomy, TSF and corticotomy. These procedures are basically where her bones are deliberately cut in order align and lengthen them. Please keep her in prayers throughout the procedures she has to endure and the healing process that is ahead of her. Photo of Malita

It's Malita again! She was being a little shy and a bit quiet during our little chat. She was able to tell us about her younger sister, Kafanisi, who is just six years old and how they do almost everything together, from drawing water, to going to school. She likes to play Hop-Scotch a lot and one of her favourite things to eat is fried eggs. Her favourite place in the hospital so far is the playroom where she has learned how to draw trees today. Malita is waiting to go into her first operation this week and needs your prayers! We're praying for both spiritual and physical healing and for her to know God's love throughout the process!
