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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Micheal's Story

“People mock me that I have a bent leg. I remember someone laughed at me it hurt to the extent that I kicked him he fell to the ground,” narrates Michael.

Michael is a five year boy who was born with clubfoot on his right leg, a condition that his parents were told at the hospital after he was born at that it would heal when they applied continuous compresses to the leg for some time. However, despite following the instruction that they were given at hospital, the condition persisted. They went back to the hospital and he was put on posenti treatment for clubfoot where a child is put in casts over a period of time to correct the leg, but this treatment proved futile in his case because his parents couldn't manage the weekly hospital visits for cast changes due to difficulties in getting enough transport money.

Fears of raising a child with a disability hit Mwanagombe, Michael's father hard, "I use to think my child will grow up with a disability and people will continue laughing at him as he grows up.” Luckily there is a parent in their community who had a child with clubfoot and was treated at CURE Zambia and when she saw Michael, she advised Mwanagombe to bring his first born to CURE Zambia for treatment. Please join us in welcoming Michael and praying for his healing!

Micheal came back yesterday for his follow up review and he received a dressing change today! As he was recovering from being in the OT he was given a get well message card by our visitors from the USA, which we believe made him feel encouraged because he spent a lot of time looking at it and admiring it!
