BRING CHANGE

Every month, The Bridge partners with a global or local cause that is bringing practical service, love, change, and God's hope to humanity.

OCTOBER'S CAUSE: CURE INTERNATIONAL

CURE International is a Christian health care network that operates charitable hospitals and programs in 29 countries worldwide where patients experience the life-changing message of God’s love for them, receiving surgical treatment regardless of gender, religion, or ethnicity. Since 1998, CURE has had over 2.9 million outpatient visits, provided over 218,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 8,100 medical professionals.

We say healing changes everything not only because it brings an end to physical pain but because it means restoration of dignity, protection from abuse, and inclusion in family, school, and culture.
— CURE International

Throughout the accounts of His life, Jesus often talks about the kingdom of God. It’s a place where the last are first, and the king Himself identifies with the “least of these.” CURE serves children who, because of their disabilities, are often the very last: The last to be included. The last to be protected from abuse. The last to be afforded dignity. And, sometimes, even the last to be given food in their own homes. We say healing changes everything not only because it brings an end to physical pain but because it means restoration of dignity, protection from abuse, and inclusion in family, school, and culture.

CURE’s work is not limited to physical health. We are just as focused on the spiritual health of the children we serve. Often, they are told their condition is due to a curse. Through healing, we get to show them the God who hasn’t cursed them, the God who loves them, dearly. He even identifies with them. They are royalty in His kingdom. What an honor for us. Together, we get to serve royalty.
