Welcome to February and with February brings a new Community Impact Feature; this month’s featured organization is CURE International. This phenomenal organization “transforms the lives of disabled children and their families in the developing world through medical and spiritual healing, serving all by establishing specialty teaching hospitals, building partnerships and advocating for these children”, according to the organization’s blog mission statement.
For more than a decade, CURE International has transformed the lives of children with physical disabilities and their families in the developing world through medical and spiritual healing.
What’s really fantastic is that CURE 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.
Imagine what that could mean for the most remote and poorest places of the world…
Check out some of the other awesome things CURE has been doing:
- * Since 1996, CURE has performed more than 84,000 surgeries and seen more than 1.3 million patients.
- * CURE International is the largest provider of pediatric specialty surgical care in the developing world. Its hospitals specialize primarily in treating children with orthopedic and neurosurgical conditions such as hydrocephalus, cleft palate and clubfoot.
- * CURE International operates 11 hospitals in Afghanistan, the Dominican Republic, Ethiopia, Honduras, Kenya, Malawi, Niger, Uganda, the United Arab Emirates and Zambia.
- * CURE International launched CURE Clubfoot Worldwide in 2006 to eliminate clubfoot as a lifelong disability in the developing world. More than 10,000 children have been treated so far.
Right now CURE International and Air1 radio host, Brant Hansen, invite listeners of KLOVE and Air1 to partner with them in a very special mission to serve the women and children of Afghanistan through knitting.
Watch this fantastic video with Brant explaining more about this mission and how YOU can help.

CURE also has a fun blog that lets you stay up-to-date with the organization and how you can best pray for them.
