What am I giving to?

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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Beatrice's Story

“We always feel pity for her such that if she makes a mistake, it’s difficult to discipline her because she is different from the rest of her siblings,” shares Brendah, Beatrice’s mother.

“We always feel pity for her such that if she makes a mistake, it’s difficult to discipline her because she is different from the rest of her siblings,” shares Brendah, Beatrice’s mother.

Beatrice is the fourth and last child in her family and was born with a clubfoot which instantly made her different from all her older siblings. This five year old girl’s condition wasn’t easy for her father to come to terms with. “The father's first reaction was shock, he said that this condition doesn’t exist in the family. He was in denial for sometime until he eventually accepted her condition,” recalls Brendah.

Her mother was also equally disturbed by her condition and made efforts to help Beatrice. At the clinic were she was born, they were referred to a general hospital where ponseti was started. They adhered to the treatment for a few a weeks but stopped when she was nine months old because they noticed there was no improvement and also the distance from home to the hospital was difficult to make every week.

Beatrice's family heard about CURE Zambia from a Lusaka couple which has a farm near were they stayed back in 2016. During the time when they were planning to come, Brendah was involved in an accident which left her hand broken and it affected their plans of coming to CURE Zambia. A few weeks ago, our Storyteller Chaanga, went to visit another CUREkid with a team from a partner organization Smile Train. Brendah heard about this visit and it reignited the desire to bring Beatrice for treatment and a few weeks later, they are here with us to get her clubfoot straightened out!
