On Saturday 25th February, the Beit CURE International Hospital opened its doors to the general public, so that the people of Malawi - the people we aim to serve - could come and see for themselves the kind of work we are doing. There were games for the children, tours of the hospital's private ward and children's ward, a bake sale to raise money, and a drama put on by the guardians of the children in our ward. It was a very successful day, but don't worry if you missed out as we are planning another one soon!
The Medical Aid Society of Malawi have announced that Beit CURE International Hospital is now the preferred supplier for elective orthopaedic services to their clients in Malawi. This is great news for the hospital and its staff who have all worked so hard to ensure such high standards. See the confirmation letter here
One of our former surgeons at Beit CURE International Hospital, Sam Weston-Simons, will be attempting the Marathon des
this year in order to help raise funds for the hospital. Have a look at his website
to catch up on his progress, or visit his donation page
to make a donation. We are very grateful to Sam for choosing to support us, and wish him lots of luck!
Christmas came early this year for the children
in the Beit CURE International
Hospital ward. The
central garden at the hospital was transformed by Christmas decorations and the
children and guardians gathered together for a CURE Christmas Party. All the
guests enjoyed a festive feast complete with a huge Christmas cake, thanks to
our generous sponsors and organized by Freemantle.
See how the Party was reported in the news here:

The Malawi National Clubfoot Programme is now in its fourth year
and we can proudly say that almost 4,000 children from all across Malawi have
been cured of clubfoot. Thanks to the work of those at CURE, the Ministry of
Health and other partners it is now the largest programme of its type in the
world. To celebrate its many achievements in this field, a football match was
hosted by Beit CURE International
Hospital in which every
single player on the pitch was a child who had been cured of clubfoot. This was
a very happy occasion and the children, who had travelled from all over Malawi
for the day, benefited from training by coaches from the Malawi National
Football Team, before playing a match and then being presented with their
certificates and prizes. The small act of kicking a football, one that is
enjoyed but taken for granted by children worldwide, is a reason to be thankful
and celebrate for these children and their families.
The private side of the hospital is thriving, and we are proud to announce that September 2011 was our record month for private patients at Beit CURE International Hospital. A celebratory lunch was enjoyed by the entire hospital staff to acknowledge this achievement. Here at CURE, adults pay a fee so the children can walk free, so more private patients mean that more children from across Malawi can be treated for free.
