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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Nyamazawo's Story

"Each day that passes, I think about how or where can I get help for Nyamazawo, my son. I kept believing that one day my son will get help," said Shika, Nyamazawo's mother.

"Each day that passes, I think about how or where can I get help for Nyamazawo, my son. I kept believing that one day my son will get help," said Shika, Nyamazawo's mother.

Nyamazawo suffers from knock knees, a condition that is very visible and hinders mobility. Nyamazawo dropped out of school because of the pain he feels whenever he walks to and from school. The other reason he left school is due to the response of his community to his condition. Shika had to look for another place to live because of the rejection from their community. Unfortunately, the people in the community where Nyamazawo lives do not understand that having knock knees does not mean your a bad person or a witch, and so they responded to him accordingly. Because of how their community treated them, Shika told us, "I did not have the energy to take my son to the hospital because of how I see and feel people will treat us."

Nyamazawo was eventually taken to a local hospital in December 2020 and was referred to CURE Malawi. Nyamazawo and Shika are now at CURE Malawi and have been seen by our doctors. Nyamazawo will receive corrective surgery soon, and we will show them the love of Jesus. The love that God has for these two is incredible. He brought them here, and we want them to feel supported and accepted by the CURE family. Please share your get-well messages with Nyamazawo and Shika and help them to feel your support!

"I had to change my name because of my friends who used to make fun of my legs," said Nyamazawo. He added another name, Chisomo, which means Grace, to himself so that people that teased him would not as easily recognize him. By the grace of God, we believe Nyamazawo will start a new life with new steps! Please join us in welcoming Nyamazawo and his mother Shika to CURE Malawi. Photo of Nyamazawo
