Cure International and Diana Diaz



CURE International

CURE International is a non-profit organization that operates 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, ethnicity, or ability to pay. Since the first hospital opened in Kenya in 1998, they have seen over 2.1 million patients, provided over 150,000 life-changing surgeries, and trained over 6,600 medical professionals.

Diana Diaz, Director of the World Culture Club (retired)

Diana Carel-Diaz as a co-chairwoman and publicist of the World Culture Club, was there at its beginning and has observed the club’s transformation over the last decade. The World Culture Club began with Nkuchia Mikanatha and David Welliver’s vision of a group that would create a place where people from other countries and cultures would feel comfortable and welcome, and adjust more easily to a new environment. Under Diana Diaz’s leadership it has evolved into a platform for educational programs that help people understand and learn about other cultures as well as an environment that aids people regardless of religion, nationality or race.
