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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Shezaad's Story

“I took my grandmother to our local hospital, and the doctors said I need help too. I told them 'It is my grandmother who is ill not me!' But the doctor kept saying 'See me after you have finished with your grandmother.' ” Shezaad shared with us, remembering the persistent chat that started his journey to healing. Shezaad’s grandmother was treated and when Shezaad went over to the doctor’s office, he learned that the bone defect he has lived his entire life with is actually treatable with surgery! The doctors told him about one of our CURE Malawi mobile clinics that would be taking place at the same hospital shortly. Shezaad returned for our mobile clinic and was promptly scheduled for surgery!

"When I am at school, my classmates often say some annoying things like how funny my hand looks. This hurts, and sometimes I skip school just so I don't have to put up with their comments." Shezaad says. Shezaad would love to be architecture engineer and fixing his hand would get him one step closer to making this dream a reality. Please help us to pray and support Shezaad and his mother Ellen as they are here at CURE Malawi with us!
