My family lived and worked in Kenya to help start the first CURE International children's hospital. It was an extraordinary opportunity, and our efforts were blessed with much success. The coordination of experienced and expert teams from North America, Europe, and Africa culminated in a remarkable hospital that helped pave the way for additional efforts by CURE in Africa, Latin America, and central Asia. CURE International's leadership displayed both resolve and flexibility in good measure and balance to allow for this first entity to explore what were then chiefly novel possibilities - the fruition of which is realized many ways, including: the number of Kenyan and other African orthopedic surgeons whose education was sponsored by CURE; the number of additional hospitals now a part of the growing CURE International network of facilities over ten years later; the healthy mix of expatriate and indigenous leadership throughout the CURE International network of hospitals. Within the context of creating the team of this first hospital, we discreetly hired and promoted individuals with physical disabilities not too different than those of the patients we treated. With about a dozen staff in various positions, families saw and spoke to individuals who though dealing with congenital and acquired medical issues and were able to pursue and achieve educational and professional career goals. This was a quiet but effective testimony to families of the hope CURE endeavored to create.

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.
