A year of unforgettable stories
There are only a dozen stories below, but there could have been hundreds. It’s been a truly incredible year for CURE, full of joys and challenges, and we hope you see that in each of these stories. We also hope you know that without your prayers and support, none of them would have been possible.
2014 in Review
Seen, heard, and remembered
Former CUREkids Coordinator in Kenya and current CUREkids manager Jenny England demonstrated how the strongest bonds aren’t always built on speaking the same language.
CURE on the radio
Thanks to the addition of Brant Hansen as our first-ever Storyteller, CURE has been able to reach a whole new audience through nationwide radio shows.
Remembering a faithful friend
CURE President and CEO Dale Brantner reflected on the tragic event that occurred at our hospital in Afghanistan and reaffirmed CURE’s commitment to love and serve the people of Afghanistan.
When healing means freedom from hiding
Surgery at CURE is so much more than physical transformation. For Lauri, surgery meant freedom from hiding and the ability to pursue his dreams.
The story of a smile
We celebrated World Smile Day by sharing Sharifa’s incredible story. Her smile – and her whole life! – were completely transformed at CURE Niger.
A brand new cure.org
2014 ushered in a beautiful (and beautifully functional) makeover for cure.org. CURE CTO Joel Worrall explained some of the new website’s highlights and cool features.
Little bodies, big hearts
CURE Global Outreach Coordinator Jess Johns went to Uganda and experienced how imperfect people who choose obedience can make a huge difference.
Welcome aboard, Chris Tomlin
Having Chris Tomlin join CURE’s Board of Directors was definitely a highlight for us this year. Chris shared why he decided to join CURE and why healing matters to him in this interview.
It’s really Clayton Kershaw
Some of the kids at our hospital in Santo Domingo got a nice surprise when baseball star Clayton Kershaw visited CURE Dominican Republic. The young man pictured above may have been the most surprised of all; he couldn’t believe he was actually meeting Clayton!
Aramatou spent a lot of time in art therapy while recovering at CURE Niger, but she emerged with more than a beautiful collection of colors on a page. These 821 drawings helped Aramatou find hope and healing.
Kids are finding healing at Tebow CURE
The Tebow CURE Hospital is officially open and treating kids in Davao City, Philippines! We were so excited to meet Ruby Anne, the hospital’s first patient.
You are the light of the world
If you’ve ever given to CURE, prayed for our patients and families, or supported our mission in any way, you are shining the light of healing for the kids we serve.
Thanks for a great year!
We couldn’t do this without you. Help us provide healing for even more kids in 2015 by becoming a CURE Hero and helping a different child every month.
