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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

"After she was born we were told to take her back to the hospital to start treatment for her legs but we did not take her," reports Winfridah, mother to Prisca.

Prisca comes from the northern part of the country and has severe clubfoot which has been untreated because the family did not believe that her condition could be healed. Prisca is the sixth and last born in her family and her condition makes her different from the rest of her siblings, “We were surprised and disturbed because it’s the first time such a case was appearing in the family. We tried compressing her legs for some time but they were growing more bent as she was growing older, we even lost hope that she will forever be with this condition for life,” recounts Winfridah.
Our four year old girl manages to play with friends but she sometimes fails to keep with the pace of play with her peers and can't participate in some games because of her physical condition. Her family came visiting in Lusaka at a relative's place and a church elder who goes to the same church with a member of our spiritual ministry, Pastor Lubasi, saw her he told them that her condition could be treated at CURE Zambia. He then called Pastor Lubasi who advised them to come to CURE Zambia for treatment. Winfridah also shared how the prayers conducted here have been uplifting and that even as she was on here way to CURE Zambia she didn’t believe that her daughter would be healed but she now believes!

Prisca came in yesterday for her follow up review, her old casts were removed and fresh ones have been put on today! This time around she came with her father while her mother remained at home attending to a bereavement. We asked her father how he feels now that his daughter has been treated. "I am very happy that she has been worked on, we tried three hospitals but nothing was happening to her but now I can see the change. When I called my parents in the village to say that my daughter was worked on, she was looking different, they were unable to believe it because everyone thought nothing would be done to correct her legs. My sister saw Prisca when she was discharged from here, when she went to the village she also told my parents - that's when they believed." We're thankful that Prisca's good news of healing has extended to her family back at home - thank you for making that possible! Photo of Prisca
