Purpose

CURE Children's Hospitals are world-class facilities with highly trained surgeons and caregivers providing specialized care for children with disabilities. From pre-surgery evaluation, through surgeries, physical therapy, and mobility device fitting, children receive comprehensive, transformational care.

CURE Children's Hospitals treat children with a variety of disabling conditions that often go uncared for in countries that have a lack of access to resources. Without treatment, these children are more vulnerable, often in pain, and left on the fringes of society.

At CURE Children's Hospitals around the world, our staff is trained to reflect kingdom values in their work and to seek opportunities to share God's love in word and deed.

In order to provide sustainable, long-term solutions for the 9 million kids living with disabilities in the countries where CURE serves, we train surgeons, medical professionals and partner with local pastors. We strive to not only provide the highest standard of care, but to train others to do the same.


Mission statement

Luke 9:2 tells us that Jesus 'sent them out to heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God.' In response, CURE's mission is to reach and heal more children living with disabilities like clubfoot, bowed legs, cleft lips, untreated burns, and hydrocephalus. We do this through a global network of pediatric surgical hospitals that serve children.


Statement of faith

1. The members of this Mission declare their belief in God the Creator and Preserver of all things, who created man, male and female, in His own image, and gave them dominion over the earthly creation.

2. The members of this Mission declare their belief in the deity and humanity of God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ, who being very God, also became man, being begotten by the Holy Spirit, born of the Virgin Mary, was crucified dead and buried and then was raised from the dead and ascended to the Father.

3. The members of this Mission declare their belief in the deity and personhood of God the Holy Spirit, who convicts the individual sinner of sin, righteousness and judgement and gives the ability to understand the gospel leading to repentance.

4. The members of this Mission declare their belief that the trinity of God the Father, God the son and God the Holy Spirit exist co-equally in unity.

5. The members of this Mission declare their belief that the Bible is the divinely inspired word of God and is infallible, as originally given, in all matters of faith and conduct.

6. The members of this Mission declare their belief that the sacrificial death of the Lord Jesus Christ was necessary to atone for the sinfulness and guilt of each person, who would otherwise be subject to God's judgment and punishment.

7. The members of this Mission declare their belief in the equality and essential dignity of men, women and children of all races, ages, and classes. We recognize that all persons are made in the image of God and are to reflect that image through their giftedness in the community of believers and in society.

8. The members of this Mission declare their belief that each believer, by the working of the Holy Spirit through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ, has been born anew to an assurance of eternal salvation as a child of God.

9. The members of this Mission declare their belief that as members of Christ's Body, we are to do the works of God, as revealed by the Holy Spirit and to share the good news of the Word to bring glory to God.

History

1986 - Dr. C. Scott Harrison, a successful orthopedic surgeon and international businessman, was asked to perform spine surgery and teach higher-level orthopedic surgery skills to local medical practitioners in Malawi. Over the years, Scott and his wife, Sally, returned to Malawi on many occasions to help children with disabilities. The great physical and spiritual needs of these children weighed heavily on their hearts, and they wanted to do something more about it.

1994 - After Dr. Harrison finished his tenure as CEO and President of Kirschner Medical, the Harrisons fully pursued their passion for healing children with disabilities.

1996 - They founded CURE International. Two years later, CURE's first hospital opened in Kenya.

CURE has grown significantly since the first hospital opened in Kenya, but the mission to heal the sick and proclaim the kingdom of God remains and is at the forefront of all we do.


Program accomplishments

Since 1996:
5.2+ million patient visits
308,000+ surgical procedures performed
236,000+ decisions for Christ


Needs

There are thousands of vulnerable children waiting to receive surgeries. As a CURE Hero monthly donor, you will be introduced to a child every month who is in the hospital. You can send messages to the children assigned to you, encourage their faith, and hear about their progress. Because of your generosity, these kids will be able to walk again, smile again, and go to school again. And, they will hear about Jesus and how much He loves them.
