CURE in Zambia

The picture above is of CURE in Zambia. Everyone who serves with CURE in Zambia, from medical professionals to office staff, 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 Maambo. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Maambo. When you give a gift through Maambo's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like 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 Maambo. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"This child knows too much for his age," says Aliness, "If I leave him alone with anyone for a while, he will tell me everything he saw and heard, that is how smart he is." Maambo was born with clubbed feet, and although he has difficulty walking because of his condition, there's no stopping him! He makes sure his presence is felt wherever he is. We are excited to be able to give him the treatment he needs here at CURE so that his feet will always be able to keep up with his big personality!
