PUTTING KIDS ABOVE PERSONAL COMFORT:
LEMOYNE, Penn., June 5, 2008 – At a time when many in the U.S. are worried about job security and making ends meet, several medical professionals have recently given up the comforts of successful careers in the medical field in order to serve some of the poorest children in the world.
The list could go on and on. CURE International provides desperately needed medical care to poor children and their families in nine hospitals throughout the developing world. CURE employs surgeons and administrative staff primarily from the U.S. and the U.K. to oversee care and training at these hospitals. All CURE hospitals provide first-world quality standard of care.
Why do each of CURE’s employees (and its many medical volunteers) want to be involved? The common denominator is a genuine love for children and a belief that even the poorest of the poor should have the same quality care as that of privileged children born in the developed world. Their shared desire is so great that they are willing to make great personal sacrifices – and sometimes risk their very lives – to serve others.
“I am so grateful for the amazing staff who serve in our hospitals around the world,” said founder and president Dr. Scott Harrison. “We couldn’t do what we do without their love for and commitment to children’s health. Their selfless character has made it possible for CURE to see more than 720,000 outpatients and provide life changing surgery for more than 42,000 children.”
