CURE Celebrates Reaching 1.5 Million People with the Gospel

News | 7 Oct 2022

Since its founding in 1996, CURE International has provided children with treatable disabilities with the gift of surgery and introduced them and their families to the love of Christ. 

At a critical time when hope and health services were most needed, CURE achieved the most robust spiritual milestones in its 25-year history. These numbers represent individuals touched by the goodness of God through the generosity of donors and the staff’s faithful service: 

  • 1.5 million people reached with the gospel
  • 250,000 people made a decision for Christ

In large measure, what advanced these milestones was the spiritual ministry of CURE — staff discipleship, ministering to patients, and reaching out to churches in the community. More children coming to CURE hospitals means more opportunities to introduce them and their families to the grace of God. During the fiscal year 2022 alone, CURE shared the gospel message with 180,302 people and saw 27,588 men, women, and children make a decision to follow Jesus. In addition, more than 700 pastors received training in disability theology to help families and communities see people with disabilities as valuable members of the body of Christ.

Equally remarkable, on the medical side, the CURE network of hospitals provided a record-breaking 15,131 life-changing pediatric surgeries for the most vulnerable children across Africa and in the Philippines. This represents a 50 percent increase over the previous year’s growth.

“Never in our history have so many been served by the CURE network — surgically and spiritually,” says Justin Narducci, President/CEO of CURE International.

“We give our sincere thanks and gratitude to God and to everyone who has supported CURE’s mission over the years. Their impact is eternal,” adds Earnest Kioko, CURE’s Senior Director of Spiritual Ministry.

CURE’s work focuses on healing the whole person by integrating world-class surgical services and compassionate Christian care through its network of children’s hospitals.
