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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Chiweruzo's Story

“The first time my friends laughed at my hand, I wanted to stop going to school. My mother kept telling me that I should not mind the jokes and I made the call to tell the teacher every time I heard someone making fun of my burnt hand.” Chiweru… Read more

“The first time my friends laughed at my hand, I wanted to stop going to school. My mother kept telling me that I should not mind the jokes and I made the call to tell the teacher every time I heard someone making fun of my burnt hand.” Chiweruzo told us. When Chiweruzo was just one year old he was crawling around as babies tend to do, following around his mother as she did her household chores. He followed her into the kitchen where they had just finished cooking breakfast and the hot ash was still smoldering in the fire pit. Chiweruzo hadn't yet learned the dangers of fire and managed to put his little hand down right in the hot embers. The burns were instant and bad. His mother immediately set out on the long journey to the nearest hospital where he was treated and discharged. Unfortunately, Chiweruzo's family didn't have the money to make the repeated trips needed for the necessary after care. As a result, his hand healed in a disabling manner.

Chiweruzo's disability causes some pain, lots of challenges in trying to use his hand, and isolation from the other kids at his school. Thankfully, after years of living with this disability, a local doctor saw Chiweruzo and was able to tell Chiweruzo and his family about us here at CURE Malawi. Chiweruzo and his aunt Sara have now made the journey here to our hospital, where they'll get the treatment they need and the support to make sure everything heals the way it should. His Aunt Sara shared with us, "I am so encouraged that we can meet and pray with the spiritual staff everyday and this has really given me hope and assurance of Chiweruzo’z healing.”

As for Chiweruzo, he just has one dream for the future - “Once I am treated and well again, I will go to school and show all those who used to laugh at me that look! I am well, now let us go play football!"

Chimweruzo is having the best time in the playroom today! Along with making necklaces and hand painting with the volunteers, there are bubbles! Chimweruzo loves bubbles and while other kids were trying to pop them with there hands or blow on them to keep them up in the air, Chim decided to chop at them with scissors. He had everyone in the room laughing. We are glad to seem Chimweruzo enjoying his time at the hospital with his new friends and lots of bubbles. Thanks for all the prayers for our silly boy Chim!
