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 Loveness. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Loveness. When you give a gift through Loveness'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 Loveness. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"When I grow up, I want to become a teacher because I want to help children learn how to read and write," says Loveness.
Loveness was born with clubfoot and at a very young age she was casted multiple times, but the casts didn't help to straighten her clubfeet. She stopped going for casting and her clubfoot became neglected and grew worse. She came to CURE after a recommendation to her father by someone who lives close to them and now she can't wait for surgery. We are so thankful that she came. Please join us in praying for her healing!

Loveness and some of the older girls in the ward got a fun treat when two grade school girls doing community service decided to stop by CURE Zambia to spend time with the girls and play games with them. It was nice to see all the girls light up as they played games together. Loveness sure felt loved! We are thankful for people like you and others that take time to support, pray and love on the kids in our hospital. It means the world to our kids! Thank you for coming alongside us. Please continue to pray for Loveness as she awaits surgery, which has been rescheduled to sometime next week. Photo of Loveness

Loveness is having a good day! She is so excited about wearing shoes on both feet someday, but for right now, she is getting started with her right foot. A few months ago, she wasn't even able to wear shoes because both her feet were a serious case of neglected clubfoot. We are so happy about the progress she has made so far! Please be praying for her as she prepares to get surgery on her left foot on Monday and that she will have a restful weekend! Photo of Loveness

Notice that Loveness has a cast and its wrapped in a plastic bag. She got a cast to straighten her foot a little more in preparation for her surgery on Monday.

Please continue to pray for a good stay in the ward as she waits for surgery on Monday. Photo of Loveness

"It's so sad when you get attached to the kids and then they leave, but then it's great that they get to go home," commented Else, wife of our Executive Director. We agree with Else, because attachment doesn't come with a warning label. But we love that we get attached, because we love our kids. We love Loveness who has been discharged and will be returning in a week's time for her review. Thank you all for your prayers and may God bless you mightily! Photo of Loveness
