CURE UW is a part of CURE International, a faith-based 501(c)(3) organization focused on providing medical and spiritual care for disabled children around the world. Founded in 1996, CURE International operates a network of charitable hospitals and programs in 29 countries worldwide, where patients receive charitable surgical treatment regardless of gender, religion, or ethnicity. To date, CURE has had over 2.7 million patient visits, provided over 191,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 7,200 medical professionals.

To help CURE impact the lives of children around the world, CURE chapter at the University of Washington strives to raise funds and awareness for CURE’s work with activities on campus. Our members have raised money through various fundraisers and have made connections with children at the CURE Kenya hospital.

At the University of Washington, we have begun a project to bring the community together to make a greater impact around the world. This is not only our gift to the children CURE serves, but also a reminder of how their lives matter to our community. Your generosity can make more people help fund surgeries, including the correction of clubfoot, burn contractures, cleft lips/palates, hydrocephalus, spina bifida, and other conditions, ultimately contributing to the physical and spiritual healing of these children and their families.
