My husband and I were given the most outstanding Christmas gift last year, a large donation to this organization that does what it says it is going to do. I can not express my admiration enough to the people who began and continue to facilitate the ongoing operation of such a life altering work. Thank you and may the Lord bless you for all you are doing for those who can not help themselves.
Review from CharityNavigator
My family and I visited CURE's first hospital in Kijabe, Kenya over ten years ago. We spent time with the incredible leadership of that hospital and with the children receiving surgical care for their physical disabilities. We were able to see first hand how the CURE hospital with its quality surgeons and staff were able to make a crippled child walk again and a deformed arm straight again. As we experienced the smiles of these children and of their care-givers, we were forever committed to supporting the work of this wonderful organization. In these past ten years, we have seen CURE open 10 additional hospitals in developing world countries like Uganda, Ethiopia, Honduras, Afghanistan and others. These additional hospitals provide the same first world quality care that we saw in Kenya in the year 2000. Not only are they able to now perform nearly 20,000 surgeries and see nearly 225,000 outpatients annually, they also provide effective spriitual and social support to these patients and their family. CURE also has established effective training programs at each of their facilities to promote better health care capacity in the developing world countries where they work. We are honored to be a part of such a wonderful and high value organization.
I was very moved when I heard the job that Cure was doing with so little. I was listening on the radio one day as they explained how they could cure a child for as little as $100. Wow only $100 dollars to change the life of a child forever! But what moved me more was the effect it had on the family of the child. As the doctors who performed these amazing surgeries where Christians they were able to share their faith with the family of the child and would have 5 - 10 family members come to the Lord because of the healing of their child. Praise the Lord, Cure International!
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.
I have enjoyed my association with Cure International as a donor and Children's Ministry leader. They have a clear sense of purpose, and they make effective use of their time, talents and resources. They are great communicators of their vision, and do a great job of allowing the general population to join with them in achieving their goals. When you receive a communication from CURE, you not only get a heart for the children they treat, you also know that together we can transform the lives of children all over the world.
My experience with CURE started on a volunteer trip to their newest hospital in Honduras. I continue to be so impressed by what started just over 10 years ago as a vision has turned into a tremendous far reaching global operation: an operation helping children who desperately need someone on their side. Not only does CURE reach out to these children to show them someone cares, but they also integrate into the process the teaching's of Christ, and that God is also there for them.
