Investing in Surgical Training to Reach More Children in Need
You know that story in the Bible where the boss is going on a long business trip, and he gives three of his employees some cash to see what they can do with it while he’s gone. The first one freaks out and stuffs the cash under his mattress just to keep it safe until […]
Disability Training in Niger
Niger is a country that largely survives off of subsistence farming where each family grows just enough food to eat each year with very little leftover. As such, a person’s worth in society is directly linked to their ability to put in a hard day’s work in the fields. For the kids we treat here […]

Burundi clubfoot program, new hospital counseling coordinator
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. Her name is Angelique Iribagiza, and she started in April. As it is the culture and the value in CURE International, after her recruitment she benefited with a two weeks training in Rwanda.

Healing for tomorrow: CURE and medical training
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.

Mead Minutes: Multiplying impact through training
The important event of the week was the COSECSA Spine Course. The course was the first of its kind for COSECSA. There were participants from eight African countries – Kenya, Uganda, Zambia, Malawi, Ethiopia, Rwanda, Zimbabwe, and Tanzania – attending. Lecturers delivered talks on a wide range of topics about the spine. Participants also had the opportunity to use models to place spinal screws under the direction of skilled teachers. The conference allowed time for the participants to talk and share experiences with each other.
Challenges, Changes, and Confirmations in Uganda
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. No matter what the setting — pediatric specialty hospital, community-based hospital, CURE Clubfoot Worldwide country programs, CURE Hydrocephalus, etc. — training is the key. Training is complementary to academic education, clinical research, and expert patient care. In fact, training […]
