CURE

1 Mar

More than 100 million physically disabled children in the developing world can be cured through surgery. These children have conditions like clubfoot, bowed legs, cleft lips, untreated burns, and hydrocephalus. Without care, they won’t go to school, will have little hope for a future, and many will die from their condition.

CURE’s mission is to bring 100% physical and spiritual healing to these children. CURE is a non-profit organization that operates hospitals and programs in 20 countries around the world where patients experience the life-changing message of God’s love for them, receiving surgical treatment regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, or ability to pay.

Since CURE’s first hospital opened in Kenya in 1998, we have seen over 1.6 million patients, provided over 128,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 5,200 medical professionals.

We are changing lives:

As the leading provider of specialty pediatric surgical care in the developing world, CURE is helping children who have no hope for the future because of their physical disability. By helping a child walk without crutches, repairing a smile or straightening a back, a life is changed. It is more than surgery. It is a gift that will continue to pay dividends the rest of that child’s life.

We are changing families:

Healing a child changes a family. At CURE, parents of children with disabilities burdened with feelings of guilt and shame find healing and hope through God’s love.

We are changing communities:

Most communities in the developing world shun children with disabilities. But when families bring their cured children home to the village, attitudes change, stereotypes vanish and future generations of the disabled are treated with compassion and understanding.

We are training medical professionals:

CURE is training doctors and nurses so that quality care can be accessible for future generations. With each doctor trained, we can help more and more children and ultimately, eliminate specific disabilities as lifelong burdens.
