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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Yohane's Story

“I do not want to go to the same people at school who make fun of my legs and joke about me. I think of not going to school the next day because of shame and pain,” said Yohane.

“I do not want to go to the same people at school who make fun of my legs and joke about me. I think of not going to school the next day because of shame and pain,” said Yohane.

Yohane has knock-knees, and he is here at the CURE Malawi Hospital for correction of his legs. Yohane goes to school, but it has been difficult for him to walk each morning in pain. The headteacher from his school is a friend to a local doctor. It happened that the doctor decided to visit the headteacher at school one afternoon. On that day, the doctor saw Yohane passing by with a disability and asked to meet Yohane’s parents. The doctor encouraged Yohane's parents to visit the CURE mobile clinic in their area. Yohane had never received treatment for his condition and had been dealing with it for over three years! Yohane visited the CURE clinic and is being scheduled for treatment.

“I definitely hope and believe that I will reach my goal now. I will go back to school with this treatment and work so hard,” Yohane shared with a huge smile.

Please pray with us for Yohane and for the doctors as they plan for his operation.
