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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Angeline's Story

“I want to be a fashion designer when I grow up and I hope to wear sandals in the future, but for now, I am going to finish school and focus on my healing,” Angeline said as she told us her hopes and dreams.

“I want to be a fashion designer when I grow up and I hope to wear sandals in the future, but for now, I am going to finish school and focus on my healing,” Angeline said as she told us her hopes and dreams.

Angeline is one of eight kids in her family, but is not the only one with clubfoot. Her dad, Norlito, tells us a bit of their history: “I myself was born with clubfoot, but my foot became straight because my parents massaged my foot all the time. Now two of my kids have clubfoot just like I did. My wife and I massaged their feet, but Angeline’s foot was always in pain and we could not straighten it. We delayed any treatment because we couldn’t pay for a doctor until a neighbor saw us and recommended us to come to CURE Philippines.”

Their neighbor connected Angeline and Norlito to CURE Philippines and Angeline soon found hope that “people from school will not bully and call me names and I will not be shy to attend school activities.”

As Angeline starts her healing journey here at CURE Philippines, we have had the opportunity to remind her that, as 1 Samuel 16:7 says, "Man looks on the outward appearance, but our God looks on the heart." Angeline will have a series of casting on her foot which will prepare the foot to respond better to her eventual surgery.

Because of your support, we have the opportunity to share the truth of God’s word and the act of His healing with Angeline here at CURE Philippines!

Basketball is life here in the Philippines, but Norlito took a break from watching the Western Conference Playoffs to eavesdrop in on Angeline's Get Well messages! She had a big virtual pile of them, thank you all for all the love and support! Ella showed Angeline where to find additional messages on her CUREkids page, so she can continue to receive prayers and encouragement once she's home. She was discharged today, and will have a break from the weekly commute for recasting until late June. Thanks again for your continued support of our CUREkids! Photo of Angeline

Angeline’s beautiful smile masked her discomfort today. “We’ll go home tomorrow, she still needs medicine today because of the pain.” Norlito told us. Overall, Angeline is doing well, and spent the day relaxing and watching TV, and was openly relieved to be done with surgery. Please keep praying for Angeline’s pain levels, that they drop to a point where she’s able to go home soon! Photo of Angeline

Angeline always has an entourage when she comes to the hospital, and today in the operating room was no exception! She had all sorts of special guests! Dr. Ray Ray, who is usually upstairs in clinic and the ward, observed Dr. Jun to learn more about how to treat clubfoot. Then, nurses Jhun and Tzaddi were on hand to do Angeline’s casting after her tendon transfer was complete. They have done most of her castings, and it just seemed right that they finished what they started a few months ago. Thanks for staying the course with Angeline as well through your prayers, support and encouragement! Photo of Angeline

Angeline got to see another part of the hospital today, the ward. She was welcomed by Children’s Mentor Ella, who gave her one of Tebow CURE’s activity books. They’re geared towards kids of all ages, and Angeline got to work answering the questions about how she was feeling about surgery, which happens tomorrow. After so many castings, she’s nervous, but excited to be so much closer to being done! Please pray for Angeline’s surgery tomorrow! Photo of Angeline

Angeline had her final pre-surgery casting done today. She had her usual entourage of Norlito and Albert, and today, two of her cousins joined. Her support team just keeps growing! This cast change was exceptionally tender for Angeline, and she was really struggling with pain. Norlito did what he could to help support her leg while Nurse Francis finished the process. She will have surgery next week, so there is light at the end of the tunnel. Please pray for encouragement for Angeline as she gets ready for this final step! Photo of Angeline

Angeline had her crew with her again today, including dad Norlito and her boyfriend Albert. Nurses Jhun and Tzaddi asked Angeline’s dad if he approves of the two of them dating, and he replied, “As long as they finish school, it’s OK.” After witnessing Albert in action, which included washing Angeline’s feet again and supporting her when she was uncomfortable, we have to say, we approve too! It’s comforting to see our CUREkids supported by their loved ones, and we know that there are so many more around the world doing the same through prayers and Get Well messages! Photo of Angeline

"My dad went to the mountains to work, so I'm here with my grandma, my step sister, and..." Angeline paused and giggled. Angeline came with a crew for clinic today! One of them is her boyfriend, Albert, who helped push her wheelchair, washed her feet, and waited patiently during clinic and cast change. It definitely makes a difference to have people by your side as you heal and Angeline is encouraged to have a crew supporting her! Thank you for being a part of Angeline's amazing support too!

One more cast crossed off the list today and Angeline got her surgery schedule! She will continue coming back for more cast changes until her foot is ready for an operation, but the schedule will get her to look forward to this next step. It will happen during summer time here in the Philippines, so she won’t have to miss any classes. Please pray that the summer heat will not make healing difficult for Angeline but will only give her warmth of excitement to walking with straight feet! Photo of Angeline

Cast change #1 is behind Angeline today! Nurse Francis has been training in the clinic rooms over the past several weeks in casting and cast removal, and today, he was running solo in the exam room. Angeline was a perfect patient, and smiled throughout the process, which gave Francis all the confidence he needed! More cast changes to come, but we’re off to a good start! Photo of Angeline

"I was nervous at first. I was told that my foot was going to get amputated," Angeline told us. After her first set of casts, Dr. Ruta confirmed that she will need a few more casting visits, but there will be no need for an amputation. Because of your support at CURE Philippines, we get the privilege to bring healing to kids like Angeline as well as correct any false beliefs regarding her deformity. Please pray for Angeline's healing process and for opportunities to share God's word to Angeline and Norlito! Photo of Angeline
