The KFF became aware of the work clubfoot programme that CURE are running in Malawi, after getting in touch with Dr Chris Lavy, who is very involved in setting up the CURE Malawi hospital. Dave Jenkins has visited Malawi and has fond memories of the country and its people, so we decided we would like to start supporting this particular regional programme, which has treated an extraordinary 6,298 children since 2007.

We have granted £3000 to the Beit CURE International Hospital in Blantyre, Malawi. Opening in 2002,  it is a 66-bed teaching hospital that specializes in treating the orthopaedic needs of children and adults. The clubfoot programme serves children with physical disabilities regardless of their ethnic background or religious affiliation.
