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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Alexandra's Story

“I will be a fifth grader when school opens and I like playing ‘Talking Angela’ on the phone,” Alexandra tells us.

Alexandra is an eleven year old girl with a sweet personality. She is the only child of Albert, a janitor, and Giselle, a homemaker. She may be a girl of few words but her smile speaks volumes! Being the adventurous kid she is, Alexandra broke her arm while climbing up a mango tree with a friend. “I was up a few feet to get some mangoes, but then I lost my grip, fell off, and I hit my left arm on the ground,” Alexandra remembers. The impact of her fall fractured Alexandra’s arm and she was immediately brought to a local hospital. “The doctors initially put her arm in a cast to see if her arm would get any better. But there was no improvement and they advised Alexandra to undergo surgery,” Albert explains.

Thankfully, Alexandra was brought to Tebow CURE when one of their neighbors, who is a local health worker, referred them to us! “I want to become a teacher someday!” Alexandra tells us with hope in her eyes. Although this may still be in the far future, her dream to finally get back to playing and doing the things she wants to is finally at hand, all thanks to your support!

And just like that, Andrea’s stay with us is over! As much as we want to spend more time with her, the doctor has cleared her to go home! She was given some medication to manage her pain but overall, she’s doing well and she’s grateful to be finally going home! We cannot wait to see her again in two weeks and check on her progress!

After almost two months of waiting, Alexandra finally had her surgery. Since Alexandra’s radius (the thicker bone in her forearm) didn’t heal the right way, the medical team had to break her bone again in order to reshape and correct the deformity. Looking at Alexandra’s experience, we sometimes need to be broken so that we, as spiritual beings, can be reshaped through God’s healing. They finished off by putting her bones together with the use of a surgical rod and screws to keep it in place. Thanks for praying, her surgery was a success and she is now recovering in the ward!

Help us welcome Alexandra! She first came to Tebow CURE Hospital last week for her initial assessment and was scheduled for surgery this week! As part of our process of admitting patients, Alexandra underwent COVID-19 testing over the weekend to ensure that she is healthy and fit for surgery. Thank God, she tested negative and she is now admitted to the ward! Alexandra spent time writing down her thoughts about her hospitalization in the workbook given by Child Mentor Patricia. Please pray that she will be prepared physically, spiritually, and emotionally as she gets ready to go down to the OR tomorrow! Photo of Alexandra
