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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Mallen's Story

"The life of my daughter has not been an easy one from the day she was born. Each time I felt like I am losing her because of what she was passing through. A life of sickness one after another," said Nalinde, the mother to Mallen.

"The life of my daughter has not been an easy one from the day she was born. Each time I felt like I am losing her because of what she was passing through. A life of sickness one after another," said Nalinde, the mother to Mallen.

Mallen came to CURE Malawi with a local missionary pastor, the only person in her village who knew about CURE. Mallen got very sick when she was a few months old. The illness would not leave her for several months. She was treated at a local hospital which helped with her illness, but her wrist was affected and remained unusually bent. Mallen returned from the hospital and went to school. However, her right wrist made things difficult. She can no longer use it to write, eat, dress, or handle anything.

Mallen and her mother came to CURE Malawi for help. When she was seen by our surgeons, Mallen was told that she needs to have an operation to release her dropped wrist. We are so glad that she is here at CURE Malawi for treatment. Please welcome Mallen and Nalinde!

"When I am home, I spend most of my time with my relatives. Of all my siblings, Doreen is more fun, but I love all my siblings!" Mallen shared with us. She will have a wound check tomorrow, and our CURE Malawi doctors will decide whether to see the wound in the operating room or the dressing room. Keep Mallen in your prayers as she waits to get her hand checked! Photo of Mallen

We found out Mallen will still be here in our ward for at least another week. Her doctor said she will have her wound check next week and then they will make the call if she can go home. Meanwhile, Mallen has been in bed most of the day because it has been cold here in Malawi! Keep Mallen in your prayers and send your love to her! Photo of Mallen

"I miss my friends at school, but it is important that I am here so my hand gets fixed," said Mallen. Mallen was able to return to school after she first came to get her surgery here at CURE Children's Hospital of Malawi. Mallen's hands need another check (cleaning if there are any infections) to be done in the OR. Please keep Mallen in your prayers as she awaits her procedure! Photo of Mallen

Mallen is back for her check up! When we saw her today, she gave us a sweet smile. We believe Mallen missed us as we have missed her too! "Your hand is so much better!" Dr. Lubega told her with an excited voice. Mallen has been admitted for a little bit and we'll keep you updated! Photo of Mallen

Mar 15, 2021

Mallen has gone home! When we came this morning, we were told that our friend left during the weekend! We were happy for her and sad for ourselves because we will miss her so much. Her hand will be kept elevated for the next two weeks, and we believe her Bible daily reading is going on well! We will see her again in a few weeks. Please keep Mallen in your prayers for her continued recovery at home.

Mallen is a very courageous and strong girl! It is rare that she does not greet you with a smile even when she is hurting. "I was supposed to be going home today, but the nurse said I should wait a few more days," said Mallen. Our girl's hand is improving slowly. The nurses are watching Mallen's hand for swelling that has been reoccurring. Please keep Mallen in your prayers for healing. Photo of Mallen

Mar 10, 2021

Mallen has been in bed almost all day. Physical therapy personnel came by her bed and encouraged Mallen to do a few exercises. Later, Mallen agreed to go along with Tadala, the physical therapist, and they had a beautiful time getting her hand working and stretching! Mallen's hand will need a few other sessions in order to heal. Please keep Mallen's recovery in your prayers! Photo of Mallen

Reading Time! Our Spiritual team has been holding reading sessions. Mallen, choose the book "Mbewu Ya bwino," which means The Good Seed. As Mallen is undergoing her treatment here at CURE, she must keep her hand elevated to become a greater seed! Please continue to send your prayers and love to encourage Mallen and deepen her faith!

She may be shy, but her smile is still seen from a distance! Mallen is getting better each day. Her hand is a bit swollen, and our CURE nurses keep encouraging her to keep her hand elevated. This will mean Mallen will not have much movement out of bed. Our CURE Malawi doctors and nurses will keep observing her before she is discharged to go home. Please keep her in your prayers!

"My daughter has been struggling so much with her hand. I am so grateful that CURE Malawi is there is help and make Mallen's life easier and transformed," Nalinde, Mallen's mother said. Mallen's surgery was successful! The doctors were able to correct her wrist and applied a supporting cast sprint. Please pray that Mallen's hand will heal quickly and smoothly.  Photo of Mallen

Mallen is going to have her operation done today! Before she goes into the operating room, Mallen will have her blood checked. The last time our lab technician checked, she had malaria. Hopefully, she will be cleared today, and the blood test will show that her illness is gone and surgery can begin. Please pray for Mallen. Photo of Mallen

Mar 02, 2021

Welcome, Mallen who is here at CURE Malawi! This girl developed a wrist drop some years back after recovering from an illness. "My friends told me not to come here for help, they said I will not go back home alive. I told them that I want to be a teacher, and that needs both of my hands to work. I love children so much, and I want to be a teacher in preschool," said Mallen. Please join us to pray for our future preschool teacher. She will receive her surgery this week! Photo of Mallen
