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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Divason's Story

“I have had this problem for a long time and my parents told me that I had my legs deformed since I was four. I have been taken to quite a lot of hospitals for help, but I haven't seen any change,” Divason tells. Divason is a young man who has faced trials well beyond his years. But still he is a friendly guy who likes to talk about how he fights to overcome the challenges of his legs. Divason was born like any other kid, but his legs begin twisting and bending when he was just four years old. His legs became so painful that he could no longer walk even just one block. The pain compounded his mobility issues and he eventually dropped out of school. When he sought help at his local hospital, he was only given painkillers and sent back home.

Divason is the only child of his single working mother and they quickly learned they can't afford the expensive medical intervention needed to correct Divason's legs. But like many families in Malawi, Divason and his mother are not alone. They have a strong and supportive family who refuse to abandon them. It was Divason's aunt who first learned about us here at CURE Malawi and she has fought so hard to get Divason here.

"Once I get treated, I would love to return to school and I believe CURE Malawi can help me achieve this goal," Divason finishes with hope in his eyes.

As Divason waits for his frame to be removed, he looks after it and keeps it clean. Our CURE Malawi doctors will review his x-rays and make a decision whether to remove the frame or keep it for a bit longer. Divason is ready for either decision. He is a very quiet boy, but he loves to read! Photo of Divason

Divason is back! After a few weeks at home, Divason is here this week for a check-up.

Divason had a successful procedure where he had his metal frame installed on his leg. In case you weren't sure, now you know what it looks like! Those little nuts and bolts will be adjusted to slowly adjust the angle of Divason's leg. It is a long and difficult process, but it will get the best results. Your support and prayers are appreciated as Divason is stuck on bed rest. Photo of Divason

Divason is being prepared for his operation this morning as our CURE Malawi doctors explain to both him and his mother what will happen in the OR. Divason is going to have a frame installed on his leg which will allow the doctors to slowly correct Divason's disability over time. The process takes longer but has been shown to get the best results! Please cover Divason with your prayers as he gets ready to go into surgery. Photo of Divason
