why CURE International?


For our Smiles campaign, smallsacrifice is partnering with CURE International.  Like Feed My Starving Children, CURE is very good at what they do.  In their words,

We’re a non-profit organization that operates hospitals and programs in 27 countries worldwide where patients experience the life-changing message of God’s love for them, receiving surgical treatment regardless of gender, religion, ethnicity, or ability to pay.

A few things were important when we considered with whom we would partner.

– We wanted to know where the money was going.  Transparency is key, as no one wants to see only $.60 of their dollar going to the cause.
– Children need care not a band-aid.  There is a difference.
– It’s critical that the children receive medical care that is top notch.
– We believe in Ripple Theory, so it is important that the communities are made stronger by the change that occurs for the children.
– The organization that we partner with has to have a history of doing the right things for the right reasons, and seeing the right fruit.
– Finally, the organization should have a mission that aligns with what we believe.

So, why did we choose CURE?
– A very high return rate: over $.96 of every $1 goes to providing care for children whose families cannot afford it.
– Very high transparency and fiscal responsibility.
– A proven track record of success and changed lives.  Since CURE’s first hospital opened in Kenya in 1998, they have seen over 1.9 million patients, provided over 138,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 6,100 medical professionals.  They don’t mess around.
– A legacy of communities changed.  CURE doesn’t just do surgeries, CURE trains caregivers to impact families and lives.

We have no connection with CURE International other than a shared desire to change the lives and trajectories of children who are living in need.
