Healing the Heart: Trauma Training
It is CURE’s desire that every patient who comes in contact with us goes home transformed physically, spiritually, and emotionally. Patients enter CURE hospitals with disabilities that have visible scars as well as scars that you can’t see. For patients to fully heal, we need to address their emotional scars. Through trauma training, we equip […]
Wounds that Lead to Healing
Being a storyteller gives me the privilege to witness modern-day miracles at the hospital. I get to see kids wear their first-ever pair of shoes, walk with both feet flat on the ground, and stand tall when they could do none of these things before. I am grateful to see healing happen right before my […]
Smiles from around Kenya
Some had children from the villages treated at CURE or had heard of CURE from word of mouth. In one school, the principal was more than happy to to receive us. “You are from Kijabe? Your hospital did a great thing to my son some years back!” he told us excitedly. Others had not only never heard of CURE, but didn’t even know that some of the deformities affecting the village population could be corrected. “I don’t believe it, how can surgery be done on a bone?” one parent asked us.
Healing body, mind, and soul
Jesus was a healer. I think we often see Christ as a spiritual healer, but we need to recognize that He healed physically as well. Christ came to heal holistically, not just one part of a broken creation, but all parts. He came to heal our relationship with God, our relationship with the world, and our relationships with each other.
Resilience, determination, and a restored faith
Mwamba was running around in the yard when she decided to jump over a pot of boiling water, which was set aside for their morning tea. Unfortunately, her little legs miscalculated the danger involved. She tripped on the pot, and all the contents of it spilled on her little body.
When I became an expat I had such burdens on my shoulders. My physical and emotional burdens began to take a toll on my spirituality just as a yoke takes it’s toll on an ox. The yoke is attached to a piece of equipment the ox is to pull. My piece of equipment became excessively heavy.
The Power of Touch
As I began to look around the hospital, I saw how Jesus was onto something. I worked on capturing moments when physical touch was being used in order to spiritually or emotionally touch our patients. I found hundreds of moments a day. It has been an honor to witness how our staff cares for patients in ways that far surpass what it is “required.”
The kind of healing no surgery alone can offer
Kiko had surgery the following morning, a simple procedure on each leg to prepare him for prosthetics. He had been through countless surgeries already, and we figured the process would be routine for him. Been there, done that. But another surgery was one more than Kiko’s bruised spirit could handle. That afternoon, as he woke from his medication-induced sleep, he broke his silence, and it was startling to us all.

Stories of Healing from CURE Egypt
Farha was born with a disability. Farha’s mother’s family has always embarrassed her. They called her mother names because of her daughter’s disability. The continuous reminder of her daughter’s disability was tougher than the insult from her family.
