Two summers ago myself and 18 others boarded a plane for the Dominican Republic. We took 38 suitcases and carried two air filters through airports and security. We had no idea what to expect when we landed. We never thought our lives would be so transformed. Cure allowed our team to work in the hospital in Santa Domingo and took us to orphanages around the city. We wept as mothers carried their children in for free services. We took pride in cleaning stairwells were families were standing with their children to see a Dr. We smiled and laughed with patients in recovery as we gave them toys and baseballs. Cure is doing a wonderful life changing job not only in Santa Domingo, but in 9 other hospitals world wide. Cure allowed our entire team to view others that do not have medical care and opportunities that we do in the US. We were so impressed in every aspect. Our team leader was informative and relational. Our translators explained the culture as well as helped us speak to our new friends. The staff at the hospital put in long hours and worked from morning until night. The adults were so moved by this experience. I feel Cure gave our teens a life long lesson of how blessed we are in our country. Cure is doing an amazing job by reaching those who do not, nor will ever have the means for medical care or surgery. They allow people in need to come to a facility to find hope and healing. They are treated with dignity and respect and walking out the door with new possibilities for their life. Cure is changing lives around the world. It simply was my honor to see a few of the lives they are changing each day.

I am a pediatric anesthesiologist who had the good fortune to work with CURE in Honduras caring for children for orthopedic surgery. I love the organization and can't wait to return to Honduras. I would also like to serve in another one of the CURE hospitals elsewhere in the world. The CURE personnel are wonderful people who have been an inspiration to serve others.

As a short-term CURE volunteer physician, I am grateful for the perspective and insight I gained during my trips to Kabul, Afghanistan. The opportunity to work alongside the dedicated CURE Afghan and expat staff was one of the most enjoyable experiences of my 30 year medical career. I will continue to support CURE's outreach in Afghanistan financially and prayerfully and highly recommend it to any physician looking to put the joy back into medicine.

In January 2010 CURE got a group of doctors nurses and anxiliary personnel around the USA to land in Haiti and give a lending hand to this devasteted country. In a matter of days 24 people from around the country gather together to offer their services to this nation. we all came from different walks of life but we all had a common denominator CURE

There are no changes that I could think of. When people come together to help and offer a lending hand there are bonds created among the teams that are very difficul to put in words.

I traveled with CURE on multiple trips to Africa, and I have always felt that this organization goes above and beyond any expectation. They truly "cure" every aspect of the children's lives that they touch. The doctors are some of the nicest and caring people I have ever met, and they have a wonderful heart for the Lord. Not only that, but they are exceptionally good at what they do. They take the broken hearts and crippled legs, and restore them to their full potential. After my experience with CURE International I had actually began praying about becoming a full time missionary and physical therapist. I am currently at a christian school studying to be a physical therapist. CURE has a positive impact on children's lives everyday, and it has definitely had a positive impact on my life.

CURE International offered me more than just the ability to contribute financial resources to help heal disabled children. Through their short-term trip opportunities, I was able to join them in their efforts to meet the spiritual and emotional needs of their patients and families. On one trip to CURE's Honduras hospital, I made a personal connection with a young boy who has benefitted from several surgeries to correct his leg deformity. I have remained in contact with him via email for over two years now and hope that our friendship is as encouraging to him as it has been to me!

Work to incorporate ministry team members with every short-term medical team that serves at their hospitals.

In April, I participated in a CURE coordinated medical mission team to post-earthquake Haiti. The organization and handling of this trip by CURE was superb - we were met at the airport, transported, greeted at our lodgings etc in a timely and professional manner and at all times, felt backed up by CURE representatives. I would gladly participate in another CURE sponsored mission trip and recommend them without reservation.

I spent 6 weeks working at CURE Malawi in 2008. As an Orthopedic Surgeon, I have worked in various developing countries and with different organizations and CURE surpasses them all in terms of compassion, conscientousness, professionalism, team spirit and organization. CURE is outstanding in the Orthopedic field and I plan on making further contributions in the future

No major changes recommended. I would still encourage the emphasis on training local surgeons as well ie. African Nationals.

I have been a volunteer physician on medical missions since 1996. I first served with Cure, International three times this year in Haiti. I am greatly impressed with teir organization and efficiency. Whatever I needed was provided within 24 hours. I never reafed for my safety. All of my patients were cared for efficiently. Every moment I was on duty, I was used to maximum effect.

Even before visiting the CURE hospital in the Domincan Republic, I was confident in knowing that the next-to-very-little of contributions received were retained for administrative costs. Upon my visit, it was clear that CURE's model truly delivers resources where the needs are greatest, which exponentially enhances its outreach and ministry to the children and families CURE aims to serve.
