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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I cannot wait to undergo surgery so I can finally text, play ball, and help with household chores,” Jerome shared.

Jerome is a fourteen year old who loves to have a good time with friends. However, Jerome and his two friends got into a motorcycle accident after having too much fun. “My friends and I were on our way home after hanging out but then I was under the influence of alcohol and dozed off while driving. This caused the motorcycle to swerve and crash, resulting in my friends who were riding with me to sustain minor injuries and scratches. Unfortunately, I was the one severely hurt and I fractured the bones on my both arms,” he recounted the incident.

Jerome was brought to the nearby hospital but since it was a small facility, there were no available equipment and tools needed for his surgery. Thankfully, one of our doctors who also does some work in the said hospital referred them here.

“I am grateful for CURE Philippines who could help us with my son’s treatment. Since the island we live in was under tight lockdown restricting tourists to enter, my work as a scuba diver instructor has been stopped for over a year. I have been relying on fishing as a means of providing for the needs of my wife and four children,” shared Joel, Jerome’s father about their predicament.

Even in these trying times, Jerome’s family is still able to experience God’s power and provision, thanks to your continued support and partnership in what we do! Join him as he embarks into a journey towards physical and spiritual healing!

Good news! Jerome’s wounds are healing much better now, and the pain in his right arm has started to subside. He had another dressing change to make sure his arms stay dry and clean. Dr. Ray Ray made sure to give him some medication to help manage the pain and discomfort while he’s at home. Please keep praying that Jerome will be fully healed and recovered so he can proceed to the next step of his treatment, which is physical therapy! Photo of Jerome

Jerome made a visit to the clinic to have his dressing changed on both of his hands. Apparently, he’s been experiencing some pain on his right arm and upon opening up the bandages, the nurses saw that his wounds were slightly infected which was causing his discomfort. The medical team worked on cleaning out his arms and applying some special medication to help dry up and heal the wounds faster. He will need to see us again next week to have another dressing change. Please pray that Jerome’s wounds heal quickly! Photo of Jerome

"I'm thankful for everyone who supported me and prayed for me. I am thankful to God for my second life and for bringing me to this hospital. We really felt taken care of,” Jerome shared with us his gratitude for his successful surgery and for everyone who took the time to send him get well messages and prayed for him. He finally went home today with Daddy Joel and will be back to see us again in a few weeks! Photo of Jerome

“Everything will be alright,” was Daddy Joel’s encouragement to Jerome right before he was wheeled away and brought to the operating room. Because of the accident, Jerome broke the two bones in his right forearm called the “radius” and “ulna.” Meanwhile, only his radius was fractured on his left arm. To address this, the medical team had to put the broken bone fragments back together and use several surgical pins, five to be exact, to hold everything in place! True enough, everything went alright with Jerome’s procedure and he is now back in the ward. Thank you for praying! Photo of Jerome

For the past week, Jerome’s routine has been disrupted because of his inability to use both of his hands. He has learned to be more appreciative of his parents who help him do certain tasks such as writing down his homework, feeding, bathing, and changing his clothes. He is accompanied by Dad Joel who skipped work for the next few days to accompany him and take care of him during his hospitalization. Please be praying that Jerome’s surgery would go well and God will grant Joel strength as he takes care of Jerome! Photo of Jerome
