As the activities of the Burundi Clubfoot Program continue to increase, we had a blessing of a new worker who will be our Counseling Coordinator.

Healing for tomorrow: CURE and medical training

by on Tuesday, December 29, 2015 at 6:00 am

The heart of CURE is to bring these children the healing they desperately need. We do this every day through hospitals and specialty programs in 30 countries worldwide. Meeting this immediate need, though, is not enough. The deficit of available medical care, combined with the growing population in the world’s most underserved countries, means we need a greater pool of medical professionals to be able to meet those needs for more children.

Challenges, Changes, and Confirmations in Uganda

by on Friday, January 31, 2014 at 8:00 am

There have been many changes in the hospital since I was here three years ago. There are new buildings, new staff, new ways of handling the patient population (which is growing!). What has not changed is the deep devotion to the mission of bringing the gospel and healing to children born with disabilities.

What Makes the Biggest Difference?

What makes the biggest difference? Training. That is the answer I give to anyone who asks.
