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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"Ever since my son was burned, I was so worried that Laurent will never have a normal arm. I would love to get my son treated," says Triza, Laurent's mother.

Laurent was only a year old when his arm was burned by hot water. He later developed a burn contracture, a tightening of the skin, that prevents mobility on his left arm. Laurent finds it hard to use his arm so his mother Triza started looking for help. Laurent was first treated at a local hospital and after the wounds were healed, Laurent was referred to CURE Malawi by our fellow doctor.

Laurent made it at CURE Malawi and is scheduled to undergo surgery to release the burn contracture on his arm. "When I got to CURE Malawi hospital, I was warmly welcomed and I hope that by the time we return home, my son will be well!" shares Triza.

Please pray for Laurent's healing!

"They said I am going home. I do not want to go," said Laurent. This boy has made so many friends and he finds it really hard to leave. We definitely agree with him to stay, but it will be a good idea as well if he can go home for a few weeks and come back! We will always miss Laurent and his mother. Our doctors said that Laurent's wound is getting so much better. It is for the same reason that the two can go home for a bit. Thank you so much for your prayers, kindness, and support that you have shared with Laurent. Photo of Laurent
