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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Maclifa's Story

“I remember some students in my class would make jokes about my burnt hand. I told my mother about it and she promised me that she will try to look for help to fix my hand,” Maclifa shared with us. Maclifa was burnt when he was six years old. He was with his friends warming themselves by the fire. Unfortunately, Meclifa’s shirt got too close to the flames and caught fire, badly burning his left hand. His parents took him to the closest hospital where he was given an initial treatment, but in the months that followed, Maclifa's hand healed incorrectly. The skin healed in a way where it pulled his hand down into an unusable position. "He complains of the pain andI would love to see my son healed,” Maclifa’s mother Odeta told us. Maclifa was seen at one of our CURE Malawi mobile clinics in his home village and was booked to come here for the operation he needs to free his hand!

Maclifa's surgery was a success and his hand is healing straight! Today he has the biggest smile on his face and is really liking his new cast. Maclifa will have a wound inspection next week, but while he's hanging out around the kid's ward he plans on playing lots of Bao (board game) with his new friends. Please join us in continuing to keep Maclifa in our prayers while he patiently waits for his wound inspection! Photo of Maclifa

Today Maclifa is reading books with friends from our Spiritual Center's mobile library. He has become quite the social butterfly around here. Maclifa loves making new friends and he's looking forward to making many more throughout his stay in the hospital. We found out Maclifa has malaria, so he's now on medication and his surgery will be postponed. Please keep him in your prayers while he recovers and patiently waits for his operation.

Maclifa is here at CURE Malawi and we are excited to get his wrist straightened out. He's been living with it for a while now, but it's inconvenient and painful and we can't wait to be a part of giving this young man back his hand! Please join us in praying for him, for strength as he prepares for surgery and for big dreams as his new future is opening up before him! Photo of Maclifa
