CURE International is a Christian non-profit health care network that operates surgical hospitals and pediatric specialty programs in underserved countries. Since opening our first teaching hospital in Kenya in 1998, CURE has championed the cause of children and families burdened with surgically correctable conditions. We focus on compassionate patient care and excellence in clinical outcomes, while training others to do likewise.
The children and families CURE serves deal with conditions like clubfoot, bowed legs, cleft lips, untreated burns, and hydrocephalus. Without treatment, they will have little hope for a future. Many will die from their condition, and those that survive are often treated as the very last in their communities: The last to be included in daily activities, the last to be protected from abuse, the last to be afforded dignity, and, sometimes, even the last to be given food in their own homes.
At CURE, we say healing changes everything not only because it brings an end to physical pain but also because it means restoration of dignity, protection from abuse, and inclusion in family, school, and culture.
Each day, CURE’s staff works to transform the lives of children and families around the globe, with specialties including orthopedics, neurosurgery, reconstructive surgery, and OB/GYN care. CURE is continuing to grow these efforts deeper in each country served, all while maintaining our core values and commitment to providing charitable medical care to patients regardless of gender, ethnic background, and/or religious affiliation.
