A.I.C CURE International Hospital

In 1998, CURE International, in cooperation with the African Inland Church, opened the A.I.C-CURE International Hospital in Kijabe, Kenya. The 53-bed pediatric hospital provides care for children with a wide range of orthopedic conditions, such as clubfoot, knock knees, bow legs, burn contractures, osteomyelitis, and other acquired or congenital conditions such as cleft lip and palate repairs. CURE also runs an orthopedic workshop that fabricates prostheses and orthotics for clients in need of such devices. Further CURE conducts mobile orthopedic clinics to identify children in remote areas who can be treated at the hospital and to provide follow-up care for those who have received surgery.

Through the COSECSA program, CURE continues to train surgeons in the field of pediatric orthopedics with the overall objective of improving the country’s overall capacity to treat children born and living with disabilities.
