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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Asante's Story

“There was nothing that I was waiting for so long to happen in my life more than coming to CURE for help!” said, Asante.

Asante comes to CURE with knock-knees, and she has been struggling with pain for over five years now. Unfortunately, when her mother, Edith, took her to the hospital, Asante was told to wait and was never treated. 

“I love playing football but with this deformity, I cannot play as I love to do. I feel so much pain, and this makes me think I cannot follow what my father does,” Asante shared with us.  Most children in her community take up the career of their parents. Asante wants to be a soldier like her father. But with her condition, she thought this dream would never come true.

“My daughter will and can do anything with the help of the CURE hospital,” said Edith with a hopeful smile. Asante will undergo an operation here at CURE Malawi to correct her knees. Please join us in praying for her healing.

Asante both came and left with a smile! She was and still is excited about her healing. She'll be reviewed at her Mangochi clinic early next year with her brother Yamikani and will come back to the CURE hospital in six months for an X-ray to see if she is ready to have her 8-plates removed. Let's pray that her legs straighten and heal properly and that she and Yamikani have a smooth recovery together at home. Photo of Asante

Asante and her little brother Yamikani are recovering from their surgeries together! Asante has been discharged, and she is just waiting on Yamikani to start feeling better. The two should both be able to go home tomorrow. We love how much these two love and support each other. Thanks for keeping them in your prayers! Photo of Asante

Asante's first operation went very well, and she's already up and walking around today. She told us how much she loves her little brother, Yamikani, and is excited for them both to be healed. Asante had 8-plates placed in her right knee for correction, which will be an easier recovery than what her brother Yamikani will experience. She'll be discharged this week, but wait until her brother Yamikani is also discharged to go home. Please keep the siblings both in your prayers as they heal together with us at CURE Malawi!

Meet Asante! She's just come into CURE Malawi this week and is having her first operation to correct her knock-knees today! Also, we recently found out she's the older sister of our new buddy Yamikani, who just had his first operation yesterday. The two have different last names, but the same condition. Asante chose to take a different last name because she didn't like the meaning of the one given. It took staff a while to figure out they were related. Regardless, the two siblings are happy to find healing here at CURE! Please keep Asante in your prayers during her operation today! Photo of Asante
