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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Jomar's Story

“One day, I want to be able to walk with my feet flat on the ground when I get a chance to go to school. But for now, I want to be able to continue doing what I do in the rice field and hopefully walk without pain as I pick up sacks of rice to earn a living,” shares Jomar Cepeda.

At a young age, we can already see Jomar’s potential for success seeing how much he thrives and perseveres at what he does. Due to financial constraint and different family dynamics, his schooling has been on hold for about five years, leaving him the opportunity to work hard and help his family. “I was just walking on the streets one day when a relative from a local organization in Davao saw me and led me here. I knew my feet was going to get treated someday, but I wasn’t sure how.”

It’s so amazing to see CUREkids filled with hope prior to having surgery, and it’s a privilege to be the hope for them as we provide for their spiritual and medical needs. “I can do everything right now! I can work fast and play basketball… but I’d love to do them with my feet flat on the ground without pain,” adds Jomar.

We are praying for Jomar’s procedure and trust that God hears his heart’s desire as he goes through his healing journey!

The days of Jomar’s cool green casts ended yesterday, but he didn’t seem too sad about it! Maintenance team member George, who is one of our kids’ biggest cheerleaders, celebrated with him, and the two joked about “recipes” for the thick, dry skin Jomar’s casts left behind. Boys will be boys, no matter how old they are! Jomar even took a handful of steps yesterday, healing is happening! Photo of Jomar

Jomar was back today for a cast change, and since he’s older with a little more weight above his feet, he scored a set of the coveted fiberglass casts! They are stronger and lighter than the traditional cement casts, and it also means that Jomar can start walking around more. He told us that he’s been already taking steps, so he’s keeping up his strength as he heals. We’ll see him back soon for his last cast removal! Photo of Jomar

Jomar’s room was bright and sunny, and he’ll get to go soak up more sun since he was discharged today! We couldn’t let him leave without reading his Get Well messages though, we like to send our patients off with an extra dose of encouragement. He isn’t going far, he’ll be staying nearby at Our Lady of Victory (OLV) until he’s done with his casts. We’ll see him back soon, thanks for all the prayers! Photo of Jomar

Our sunshine is back, but Jomar preferred to hang out in a dimly lit room today and chat on his phone, letting everyone know that he was alive and well! He's still in pain as expected, but his spirits are up. Please keep praying for Jomar! Photo of Jomar

Jomar was very chill today, which made the surgical team’s job easy. We could see wrinkles in his skin where he has been trying to stand flat footed even though it hurt, but Dr. Jun still took a ton of bone out of both of his ankles which will get his feet “truly” flat. Even though he was still heavily medicated, Jomar kept lifting his head and glancing at his feet as he was waking up, we think he liked what he saw! Photo of Jomar

Jan 23, 2017

Jomar is here at CURE! Everyone gets to meet our lab tech Che Che on their first day here, but unfortunately not everyone is excited to see her or her blood drawing equipment. But, Jomar was a champ and didn't complain one bit, and now he's all ready for surgery tomorrow, please pray! Photo of Jomar
