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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

William's Story

“He bitterly complains that I've neglected him,” reports Sharon, the grandmother to our new patient William.

William was born a healthy child without any form of disability but it so happened that when he was five years old he came down with malaria which left him with a permanent disability that he has been battling with over the years. “When he around five years old he had malaria. That was in 2012, it hit hard and he stayed in hospital for two weeks unconscious, he wasn’t making movements,” recounted Sharon.

After two weeks in the hospital, he eventually regained consciousness and got better so they were discharged. What was supposed to be a joyous moment after his discharge, turned sour when he tried to walk. He began limping and it was brushed off assuming it was because of the malaria and that he would get better with time.
The assumption was however proved wrong because his limping continued and the situation was getting desperate so they had to revisit the hospital. ”We took him to the hospital, they prescribed physiotherapy where he had a number of sessions but there was no improvement. When we went back for a check up with a doctor, he said that when he was hospitalized while unconscious, someone might have wrongly injected him where it affected his leg and that’s what caused his disability,” recalls Sharon.

He has a condition known as equinovarus on his right leg and because of this, his friends laugh at him. William says they call him names such as akalema (a disabled) but William remains hopeful. He shared this with us, “When I get healed and out of hospital, I will sing a song of praise to God for healing me,” He sampled the song to us and it was so beautiful! We invite you to make the singing of William's praise song to God possible by joining in praying for William's healing!

William has nice smile but he is a shy boy! He has come to CURE Zambia with his grandmother Sharon. He's just had his surgery to release the tight tendons, two cuts were made at the back of his leg to accomplish this. He is recovering fairly well post operation, please pray for him!
