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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Esther's Story

“We were playing a ground game where we draw boxes on the ground and jump in them with a group of friends. My friend accidentally pushed me and I fell down. I felt instant sharp pain in my leg,” recalls Esther.

“We were playing a ground game where we draw boxes on the ground and jump in them with a group of friends. My friend accidentally pushed me and I fell down. I felt instant sharp pain in my leg,” recalls Esther.

Esther is a brilliant young girl who was very active but her activeness has been slowed down due to the injury she had in September last year when she fell down in the middle of play time with friends. She has been to a local hospital on four occasions already. During their first visit, the X-tray was done, which unveiled the severity of her injury. They were advised that she should stop walking long distances and for times where she has to walk, she has to do so with the aid of a walking stick.

Betty, her mother, explains how devastated they were as a family when she got injured, “We felt very bad when she got injured because she could no longer walk or do any form of works and before the injury she was very active”. Esther is the second born in the family of six. Smilingly, she shares the same sentiments the mother, “I fail to go fetch water and play with my friends."

It so the happened that at the time of her injury she was few weeks away from taking her grade 7 exams. In spite of the pain, she sat for the exams and her mother is happy to report that she passed. Unfortunately, Esther has been unable to go to school ever since schools opened, because the school she was posted to after passing her exams is far away. She hopes that when she is healed at CURE she will be able to start going to school and continue with her education journey.

In as much as she is currently unable to go to school Esther remains determined! Her future career plans are still intact, she says, “I want to be a teacher so that I can be help children.”

At the hospital they first went to, they were recommended that she undergoes a surgery scheduled for May this year, but this unsettled the mother, for the time period when the operation will be done is too long and would greatly affect her education. Betty the mother instead embarked on a mission to search for other alternatives for her condition. That’s how she came to learn of CURE Zambia through her in-law who has sister with a child who was treated and healed at CURE Zambia some years back.
We are happy to have here with us for treated! We would like your support in prayer as we embark on a journey to restore her life.
