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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Rose's Story

“I felt bad after she was born with bent legs, I cried thinking that my friends will be laughing at me when they see her,” Ireen disclosed.

Rose is four year old girl, second born in her family. Rose has younger sister who two years old. Unfortunately this family has already been through trials, their first born passed when she was still young. Rose was born with bilateral clubfoot, a condition which Ireen reports somehow led to the break down of her marriage with Rose's father, “We divorced with the father when she was six months, he went on to marry another woman and I strongly suspect her disability to his decision,” shares Ireen.

Several traditional medications were explored in search for healing for Rose’s condition. “We first took her to a traditional healer. According to the remedy, the traditional healer put sticks with herbs on her foot but she use to cry because the sticks were paining, they were removed,” recalls Irreen.

Ireen became a subject of laughter from people but luckily others were encouraging her to take Rose to the hospital. “I took her to the hospital, they put several casts on her legs over a period of time but I failed to continue with the treatment because the distance was very far to the hospital therefore I could not mange finding transport money to go to the hospital.”

Rose’s condition is the first time such a condition has appeared in Ireen's family but it is present in the father’s family. CURE Zambia conducted a mobile clinic in their area and they got word about it through a local church when an announcement was made. After examination at the mobile clinic, they were advised to bring her to CURE Zambia for surgery. She here with us now and her healing journey has just begun! Please join us in praying for her through this journey!
