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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Daniel's Story

"I honestly lost hope that my parents will find the help I needed to get my leg fixed. We visited hospital after hospital and each time my leg was getting more and more deformed," Daniel told us. Daniel was born just like all the other kids, but he was 11 years old, his whole left leg started to swell. It hurt too much to even stand and walking was completely out of the question. His whole life started to fall apart - he could play, he couldn't help around the house, and he hit a low point when he had to drop out of school.

Daniel's parents tried to get their son help from a local hospital. The doctors there were able to get the swelling to go down, but the bones in Daniel's knee and leg had deformed. Life was never the same for Daniel. "Ever since I was in second grade, I have been wishing to be a solder, but I don't think that will be possible anymore," Daniel told us with a sadness in his voice.

Things began to look up for Daniel when another doctor at their local hospital noticed Daniel waiting and told them about us here at CURE Malawi. Daniel's mother Gloria was encouraged and a few weeks later, Daniel and his mother showed up here. Daniel was so excited when the doctor told him that his leg will be corrected and that he can become whatever in the world he wants to be! Daniel's eyes grew wide with excitement. We are very sure that Daniel's reaction was to continue his school and become a soldier! Please pray for Daniel as he gets ready for his operation!

Daniel has received his operation! The doctors installed a frame on Daniel's leg which will allow them to correct it slowly. It takes longer but it will allow for better correction. Daniel will have another operation a few weeks to do a bone grafting to help his newly corrected bone to grow healthily! Photo of Daniel
