CURE Alumni wants to give back through student loan forgiveness contest
Dr. Nick Stahlschmidt is standing at the door of an opportunity most people only dream of: he is one of 20 finalists competing to have their student loan debt fully forgiven through Social Finance, Inc. (SoFi), a lender that specializes in refinancing student loans. If he wins the competition, he plans to donate $10,000 to CURE and Partners in Health.
Congratulations, Dr. Drum!
We’d like to extend congratulations to Dr. Elizabeth Drum, a good friend of CURE, on her selection as MedicalMissions.org 2015 Physician of the Year for International Service!
I met Jesus in Santo Domingo
When I was offered the opportunity to lead a CURE U team on a trip to the Dominican Republic over Thanksgiving break, I never dreamed I’d have the chance to meet Jesus while kneeling at a hospital bedside with plaster still drying on my fingers.
Healing changed me
Andrea Mills is a dental hygienist from North Carolina. She has traveled with CURE twice, including once as a team leader. Visiting CURE Uganda was transformational for Andrea. She describes her experience below. In 2013, my world was radically shaken. Through Uganda, Jesus changed my life. It was my first trip to Africa and my first […]
Washing feet and healing wounds
For the past two days we have been serving through washing dishes and serving buttered bread (called blue band) with tea for breakfast, followed by morning teaching of Jesus’ word. It’s an interesting endeavor: each of the teachers has an interpreter present to translate English to Lango; however, some of us need our English translated to “African” English so the interpreter can understand in order to translate. It really is quite the process, but somewhere in all of it we believe that Jesus is breaking communication barriers and whatever He wants to be heard will be heard. Sometimes, love doesn’t need to be spoken.
Despite who I am and what I do, God is faithful.
July was an exciting month for the Global Outreach Office as we sent our first CURE U Team to Zambia! This trip was unique in that all of the team members are leaders of our CURE U chapters across the nation. For those who are unfamiliar with the program, CURE U is a nation-wide network […]
Closing the door in God’s face
For two years now there has been an ongoing dialogue between the Lord and me. It sounds a little something like this… I will make you as a light for the nations, that my salvation may reach to the end of the earth. (Isaiah 49:6) Maybe it’s not so much a dialogue, because I’ve been […]

Healing in Uganda
Editor’s note: The following was submitted by Shelia Zia, a nurse practitioner who spent a month at CURE Uganda as a volunteer. If you are interested in volunteering with CURE, visit cure.org/go. It is 5am, and I know this because I hear the Adhan, the morning call to prayer coming from the mosque a block […]
All Smiles in Kenya
From October 12-26, 2012, the CURE Kenya hospital was all smiles. Although all CURE hospitals are usually happy places, the smiles were especially bright thanks to our friends at Smile Network International. Smile Network is a Minnesota-based non-profit which funds surgical missions and provides necessary supplies and surgical teams to repair birth defects such as […]
