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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

"My son is a genius," Weruzani's mom, Rosemary shared with excitement. "I hope he can be a successful student when he gets better after his treatment."

Weruzani has come into our CURE Malawi hospital with pseudarthrosis, a condition where his bone healed improperly after breaking. His mom told us that Weru was born normal and it wasn't until he fell and broke his leg at the age of eight that they began to see there was a problem. He complained about continued pain months after the incident. After a few years of taking Weru to their district hospital and believing there was nothing his family could do to help him, they finally took him to one of Malawi's central hospitals. Weruzani had an operation there and returned home, but with no real improvement.

"There were some foreigners working for a nonprofit organization that came into our village to help people. They saw Weruzani and told us about CURE," Rosemary shared. She didn't know the names of the people or nonprofit, but says she is so thankful that these strangers gave them hope in the midst of their suffering.

Weru is very shy, but he's really happy to be here with us. He says he's ready for his treatment. The doctors will be placing a frame on his left leg to gradually correct his deformity and, though nervous, he's glad to have made some friends with the same disability already that will be encouraging him through his treatment. His mom asks that we all pray "for Weruzani to walk properly and to one day do what his friends do." Please keep Weru in your prayers while he heals with us at CURE Malawi!

"When I was home, I was able to attend school. Though it was hard sometimes to walk, and I would take a longer time. But I know that very soon after CURE doctors have cleaned up my bone, I will be fine," said Weru. He is being scheduled to undergo surgery hopefully this week! Please keep Weru in your prayers.

Weruzani is back! This boy was scheduled to come back for a review. Right before the sun was set, we met Weru walking into our hospital!

Weru did his physical therapy exercises today and was told that he can go home! "I will miss Mada so much but I know I will see him again soon," Weru told us. Both Weru and Mada happen to come from the same village and came to CURE Malawi at the same time! What a great coincidence! Weru will be seen again by our CURE Malawi doctors in January. This is a long time to see him again, please keep Weru in your prayers. Photo of Weruzani

Weruzani came in for a check up today. While he still has his frame on, he was also wearing a giant smile when he came out of the consultation room. We asked him what was all the excitement all about and he said, in October, our CURE Malawi doctors will remove his frame. After that he'll have to wear a cast for a few weeks, but he can see the end of the tunnel! Your support has totally transformed Weruzani's life and he will never be the same again!

Please keep praying for him until we all meet again! Photo of Weruzani

Weru is hanging out in the playroom today. He's still a little uncomfortable with the frame, but it's getting better every day. He's happy to be able to move around the hospital, especially to the playroom, instead of just laying in bed all day. Weru loves the playroom and loves to color. He's been enjoying all the friends he's been making at the hospital who love to draw and color with him. Weru will begin his frame turns next week. Please keep him in your prayers this weekend, while he continues his physical therapy exercises and prepares for turns! Photo of Weruzani

Weruzani was in the operating room for a five hour surgery! The doctors are cutting his bone to realign it and then will be placing a frame to hold it and better correct it. As simple as it seems, the complications are all in the details. His mom is a bit worried, but we know God has a good hand on sweet Weru. Please keep him in your prayers while he's in the operating room! Photo of Weruzani

Feb 05, 2020

Weru has taken his medicine and the surgeons believe he is ready for surgery! He'll be having a long operation tomorrow and could really use some prayers as he prepares! He's enjoying his last day frame free for a while, but is looking forward to begin his healing process. Please keep his in your prayers as he gets ready for a big operation tomorrow!

Meet Weruzani! He just came into our CURE Malawi hospital with a leg deformity, but regardless of the pain, he loves walking! He can't wait to one day walk without any pain. Weruzani is such a happy kid and we are happy to have him here at our hospital. The doctors are creating a plan for him, but for now he just needs to take medication to make his bones stronger before his upcoming operation. This may take some time, but hopefully he'll be able to have his operation soon! Photo of Weruzani
