The CURE Hospital in Zambia

The picture above is of the CURE hospital in Zambia. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE Zambia are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical and spiritual care to people who, without CURE, couldn't find it and couldn't afford it, just like Baby. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Baby and kids like her. When you give a gift through Baby's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in Zambia, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in Zambia. Have more questions? Ask us.

Monthly Giving: Be a Hero!

When you partner with us monthly, we'll send you an email each month to introduce you to a different child who was helped because of your generosity. You can choose to follow their updates and send them get well messages. That means that each year, you're a part of helping 12 different children, beginning with Baby. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

In Zambia, a baby’s name isn’t picked before, but after birth. The whole family must have part in choosing the name. Cello Kayoka’s ten-day-old baby girl hasn’t yet been given a name because she has spent her whole life in hospitals. She was born with spina bifida, which is a neurological condition that causes several issues including an open wound on the spine. She went from the hospital where she was born straight to another hospital. There she had her wound cleaned and dressed, but nothing more. Once again, she was transferred to another hospital, only this time to Beit CURE in Zambia. Sadly, the baby’s wound had become infected and needed more than just cleaning and dressing changes. While they wait for further treatment, her mother Cello explained that she wasn’t worried, for she had left everything in God’s hands.
