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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

“I am feeling good because both children are been attended to at the same time,” says Priscilla, Christine's mother.

Christine is the third born daughter in the family of seven. She was born with clubfoot on her right leg and her young sister Agness who is nine months old was also born with bilateral clubfoot. This has been discouraging to the two sister's parents, having two children with a similar disability. With Christine, her first treatment attempts dates way back to when the seven year girl was only three months old, “When she was three months old I took her to the hospital, they cut her tendon then applied a cast, they did three dressing cast changes over a period of time and stopped, though the leg had not gotten straight,” recounts Priscilla.

Years passed by and the grade two girl has now grown up with this disability which has robbed her of self confidence because of being noticeably different from others, especially at school. When Agness, Christine's younger sister, was born with a similar condition their father was concerned that the youngest also had the same condition troubling his older daughter Christine so again, they started to seek for medical attention for Agness and Christine. They went back to the first hospital where they had taken Christine when she was younger, they were referred to another hospital which had a clubfoot clinic for babies but they couldn't attend to Christine so instead they referred them to CURE Zambia where we are able to treat Christine and Agness at the same time!

Priscilla says she has always been looking up to God for intervention on the disability of her daughters. To raise a total of seven children is not an easy undertaking and the burden was even heavier having two of them being born with clubfoot. They are now here at CURE Zambia and they are both receiving the medication attention that they need, thank you for helping to make this possible and for your part in blessing this family!
