Who We Are
CURE International, in cooperation with the African Inland Church, opened the A.I.C-CURE International Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya in 1998. Along with being CURE International’s flagship hospital, CURE Kenya was Africa’s first orthopedic pediatric teaching hospital for children with physical disabilities. The hospital provides care for children suffering from a wide range of orthopedic conditions, such as clubfoot, bow legs, knock knees, burn contractures, cerebral palsy, osteomyelitis, and other acquired or congenital conditions. Adults are treated for several conditions such as joint and back pains and other sports related injuries. We also conduct mobile clinics across 24 counties to identify children in remote areas who need treatment at the hospital and to also provide follow-up care for those who were treated earlier.
CURE Kenya currently attracts patients from across the country who seek for specialized orthopedic treatment. Thousands of lives of both adults and children have been transformed for the better since CURE Kenya was established. Through training of surgeons, nurses, and other healthcare professionals, we aim to improve the country’s overall capacity to treat nagging orthopedic complications.

Our Core Values
Our CORE VALUES represent the five pillars that drive CURE Hospital activities. They are;
We value a child’s passion for life and dependence on God in how we think, live and love
We value taking action in responding to the physical and spiritual needs of those without voice and resources.
The orthopedic training program at CURE Kenya is certified by the College of Surgeons of East, Central, and Southern Africa (COSECSA) and managed in cooperation with the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons (PAACS). It is widely recognized as one of the leading orthopedic surgical training programs in East Africa. Doctors participating in the residency program spend five years training at CURE Kenya, the Kijabe Medical Center and, whenever possible, other CURE hospitals in Africa. Upon completion of the program, the orthopedic surgeons continue to work at a CURE hospital or another African hospital for an additional length of time
Since the fall of 2006, in collaboration with Smile Train, CURE has developed cleft lip and cleft palate surgical training programs in most of CURE’s hospitals worldwide. These programs not only provide surgery for children and counseling for them and their families, but also train national surgeons in reconstructive surgery.
night to shine
Night To Shine is an annual prom which is conducted in over 50 countries on the same day, usually the month of February. The goal of this event is to bring Faith, Hope and Love to those needing a brighter day in their darkest hour of need. Children with special needs get to be celebrated and later on crowned as kings and queens of the prom. Just like Christ loves us, likewise we ought to show love to children living with special needs and this event gives us that special moment to bond and interact.
