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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Emma's Story

“I was playing with my brother at night just outside our house and I fell on a rock. It was so painful, that night I did not sleep. My mother and father took me to a hospital but I was in so much pain that I did not sleep the whole night,” said Emma.

Emma was playing when she fell and broke her left elbow. Even with time, the pain hasn't really gone away as her elbow never really healed properly. Emma finds it difficult to eat, to put on clothes, and struggles to help her family in their household chores. Despite all the challenges that she faces with her deformity, Emma still manages to go to school, powering through the pain.

On Emma's island there is only one hospital that is their main health center. Emma needed more help than what this hospital could offer. She needed a hospital that specifically deals with bones and it just so happens that CURE Malawi does this. Thankfully, some kind people saw her and were able to refer her here to us.

Emma together with her mother had to travel across the lake using a ferry and take a road trip to get to one of our CURE mobile clinics to be seen. Our doctors reviewed her and Emma was booked to undergo an operation to fix her deformed elbow. Join us in praying for and supporting Emma and her mother as they embark on this healing journey!

This little island girl is recovering well from her surgery Friday. She's full of giggles and thinks it's fun having her arm on traction. The doctors continue to review her this week, but for now, she's just been advised to keep that arm elevated and that smile big! Please join us in continuing to keep Emma in your prayers while she recovers. Photo of Emma

Emma is having her first operation today. The surgeons will be doing an elbow osteotomy where they'll cut the bone and correct its alignment. Please keep sweet Emma in your prayers while she undergoes surgery! Photo of Emma

Emma is hanging out in the playroom today. She decided it's better to have both eyes look through one hole in her paper glasses than it is for both eyes to their own. We love Emma's silly personality and creativity. She is finishing her malaria medicine today, so the doctors will decide if she'll have her first operation tomorrow or Monday. Please continue to keep her in your prayers as she prepares! Photo of Emma

Meet Emma! She's our little Islander who has just come into the hospital this week with a joint condition in her right arm. Emma is from an island in the middle of Lake Malawi, meaning she took a ferry to cross the lake as part of her journey to get here. We are so excited to have Emma at our hospital and are looking forward to her healing! Photo of Emma
