What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Around the world, children with physical disabilities go untreated—not because we lack the knowledge or ability to treat them, but because they lack access to care, either because of their financial situation or because of a lack or medical providers or both. CURE seeks to change that by both treating children now, through our charitable hospitals and partner treatment locations, and by establishing training programs to develop a greater supply of surgeons and medical professionals trained and equipped to meet the needs of children with physical disabilities.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

CURE envisions a world where every child living with disabilities has the opportunity to reach their full potential through God's hope and healing.

CURE seeks to establish and maintain surgical teaching hospitals, where children with correctable disabilities can receive care, at little or no cost, and where medical professionals can be trained. In addition, CURE seeks to partner with local governments and other NGOs to establish partner treatment locations where services for children with correctable disabilities can be expanded and where training can take place. Throughout the entire network, CURE seeks to also educate, inform, and provide counseling to help stigma and the effects of stigma in the communities we serve.

CURE has established and maintains 8 charity hospitals where treatment and training are able to take place, along with partnerships with local ministries of health, NGOs, and universities to expand treatment and training beyond our own centers to other partner treatment locations, now in 14 countries worldwide. Throughout our network, we also inform, educate, and counsel those who have been stigmatized because of their disability as well as the communities in which we serve to change local attitudes towards those with disabilities.

From our founding in 1996 through June 30, 2021 CURE
hospitals have performed more than 290,200 procedures,
have conducted over 5 million patient visits, and surgeons trained by CURE
have performed more than 19,000 surgeries to treat
hydrocephalus and spina bifida.
