CURE in Philippines

The picture above is of CURE in Philippines. Everyone who serves with CURE in Philippines, 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 Liu Yi. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Liu Yi. When you give a gift through Liu Yi's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like Philippines. 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 Liu Yi. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Liu Yi's Story

“We have found ways to help stop Yi Yi’s pain, but we pray that she will be healed permanently.” - Yi Yi’s grandmother Rosemarie.

Five months ago, Liu Yi, or Yi Yi for short, would at times begin to cry when she was learning to walk. Her mom, Cindy, noticed that her hip had developed a pop or click. Fortunately, they had it checked early on, and it was discovered that her hip was dislocated. They knew that something needed to be done, but they didn’t know what. For a while, they found that if they bent Yi Yi’s leg at the knee, it would take pressure off her hip, and relieve the pain. But, they knew they needed a long term solution, and found out about CURE.

Yi Yi is the youngest of three sisters who live with Cindy and Rosemarie in a gorgeous beach town on the Pacific Ocean a few hours east of Davao. As a single mom, Cindy works long hours to provide for the family, while Rosemarie helps care for the girls. We’re happy that Cindy and Rosemarie were quick in finding a solution to Yi Yi’s hip dislocation, and that it will be corrected sooner than later!

As soon as we saw Yi Yi in the lobby, she cried. Then we saw her in the upstairs waiting room, and she cried. She flashed us a huge grin in the playroom though, before crying in the exam room. But, after nearly 3 months, her cast was finally removed! Her hip still has a minor “click”, but her X-ray showed that everything is in place, so we’ll just monitor it for a while, and make sure that everything stays lined up properly. We got another smile afterwards, she was happy to finally be free! Please keep the prayers coming for Yi Yi! Photo of Liu Yi

Our adorable Yi Yi was quite emotional again today, but if she wasn’t, it just wouldn’t be her! Her mood swings just crack us up! We managed to sneak a pic in between tears as she nibbled on a snack. She was actually all smiles until the cast saw next door fired up, and the flashbacks to her last cast change led to an instant screamfest. She was scheduled to have her cast removed, but Cindy noticed that Yi Yi’s hip is still popping. A routine x-ray confirmed her concerns, the hip’s OK, but a few more weeks in her cast would be better. So, Yi Yi dodged the cast saw this time around, and when she realized she was done, she went back to her smiley self. We really need to see some miracles in the next few weeks to guarantee Yi Yi’s hip will be fully healed, please join us in prayer! Photo of Liu Yi

This morning was the happiest we’ve seen Yi Yi since she’s been at CURE! And the saddest…then the happiest…hey, she’s all girl! Fortunately we were able to capture her huge grin during a happy moment with Cindy. She has the full range of emotions going on today, probably triggered in part by some confusion as to why she can’t sit up. She’s doing awesome though, so awesome in fact that she gets to go home today, which is a huge surprise and blessing! Thanks for all your prayers! Photo of Liu Yi

We saw firsthand this morning what “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” means. We’ve watched several hip surgeries, and Yi Yi’s was so different. Since she’s so young, and it was caught early on, the doctors only had to do a few small incisions in her legs, as opposed to the large cuts and painful rearranging that is required on older kids. If she had been even 6 months older, it may have been that way. She will still wear a spica cast for a few months, which is no fun, but her recovery will be so much easier than usual, and she will grow up not even remembering it! Photo of Liu Yi

Rosemarie tells us that one of her favorite things about Yi Yi is how happy she is. It took a while for us to see that side of her this morning when they arrived, Yi Yi was pretty overwhelmed and fussy! But, she warmed up, and had fun in the playroom with her new friend and roommate Paulla. Rosemarie admits she’s nervous about surgery tomorrow, but knows she’s in good hands. Please pray with us for this little one’s healing! Photo of Liu Yi
