What am I giving to?

CURE in USA

The picture above is of CURE in USA. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE USA 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 Jenny. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for Jenny and kids like her. When you give a gift through Jenny's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in USA, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in USA. 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 Jenny. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Our journey with Jenny started over six years ago, in January 2011, in a strange, unusually cold, world-away place called Atlanta. A few, short months later, this crazy girl boarded a plane for Nairobi with a camera, a laptop, and a destiny: to introduce the world to the kids of CURE Kenya.

For the next year, she took pictures and videos. She talked with moms. She played with kids. She built life-long relationships with doctors, nurses, cleaners, cooks, gardeners, and carpenters. She listened to people, and she told stories. And every day, after work, she called the tech guys back at "the office formerly known as HQ" to do the hard work to make the CUREkids experience authentic and remarkable. Most of all, she loved our kids with everything she had and she fought to honor them and their stories.

Soon after Jenny started, the girl who once lived in a hut in rural Liberia followed God's leading to the scariest adventure she had yet encountered: moving to Pennsylvania to lead, care, train, and advocate for the CKC's who would care for tens of thousands more CUREkids. That was five years, dozens of CKC's, thousands of smiles, and tens of thousands of stories ago.

Creative. Godly counselor. Friend to many. Co-founder and co-inventor of CUREkids. World changer... and she's just getting started.

Jenny is a rambunctious girl who works her hardest not to let anything slow her down, but sometimes life is outside of our control. Once while serving in Kenya, she contracted giardia. While traveling in Niger, Jenny got bit by a seemingly friendly mosquito that rather unfriendily left her with malaria. But her biggest challenge and primary diagnosis is that her heart is too big.

Unlike most of our CUREkids, we hope she never recovers.

So, I couldn't find any pictures of you not making a funny face! But these pictures are Classic Jenny. The Jenny that brings joy where ever she shows up! Photo of Jenny

Dear Jenny, I am sure these kids would be able to say more than I can about what you mean to CURE Zambia, but one thing I know is that you have made it possible for us to enjoy the fruits of your labor. All I pray is for you to be rewarded in this lifetime. That God will fill your life until all we see is Jesus. That he will fill your heart until all we see is His goodness! You're capable of making the heavens laugh, never change that. Photo of Jenny

In 2012, Jenny came to Ethiopia to start the CUREkids program and to train the first CKC. Everybody loves her here and most of us referred to her as the fun and crazy 'Ferenge'! (Ferenge means a white person). Photo of Jenny

Fast forward a few years later, Jenny is all doing well and was found at CURE Philippines OR, where she performs her job well, interviewing and engaging with people. People all around the hospital bombard CKC Hope Kim with questions like– "How is Jenny doing?" "When is Jenny coming back?" "Do you like working with Jenny?" "Why is Jenny happy all the time?" "Where does Jenny get all of her energy?" "Did Jenny lose weight?" "Is Jenny dating anybody?" People wonder about Jenny after she's touched people's lives in the hospital more than she could've ever imagined. CURE Philippines remembers Jenny as THE Jenny who loves people, kids, and dances like a rockstar! Photo of Jenny

Here's more of Jenny last year at CURE Kenya when she came, she played, she laughed, she ate chapati... Oh, Jenny, do you remember that man on the matatu who had been drinking and maybe said he was a Christian and you told him he needed to stop drinking? Or was it smoking? Regardless, you're just the best! Sharing Jesus with the people! Photo of Jenny

Our little lady's operation yesterday went smashingly! We cut all the malaria out of her (once again, this is obviously the best way to do it) and she is resting at home. We told her that she's not allowed to work and while she fought us on it, we won! http://bit.ly/1kbYwhd Photo of Jenny

Jenny has just gone into surgery for her malaria (because surgery is obviously the best way to treat malaria). And by surgery we mean Paris where her flight was delayed, but they gave her 8 euro for her inconvenience! We'll let you know when we've operated the malaria out of her! http://bit.ly/ShFwD7 Photo of Jenny

Apparently our little one is recovering well, ready to pack up and go home. She can't wait to show off her French skills at the HQ :) Learn more at http://bit.ly/1hy6wo7 http://bit.ly/1jtBOMJ Photo of Jenny
