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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Even my people do laugh at me because I have a child with a disability,” shares Mary, mother to George.

George is the second born boy in the family although his elder brother has passed on. He was born different from his elder brother because he was born with clubfoot. After Mary gave birth at their local clinic the nurse notified the family that the child has clubfoot and urged them to take him to a mission hospital in the neighboring district. They heeded the the advise and took him to the hospital when he was three months old but it not yield any fruit because they missed the specialized doctor who was visiting at the time. “We took him to the hospital when he was three months. We were unable to the meet the doctor who was supposed to look at him thereafter we never took him to the hospital for treatment for his condition until he has grown this far,” narrated Mary.

“When he was eight months we engaged a traditional healer who would come to compress his legs with herbs. He did it for two months, there was no improvement that's how we stopped,” recalled Mary. Both mother and son have not been spared from the ridicule and mockery that comes with disability. Mary shared that some people in the community do laugh at her because she has a child with a disability. Equally, even George is not spared from these laughs especially by kids around his age group when playing. The heard about CURE Zambia through people that had come for a mobile clinic in an area near were they live, luckily they heard about the transport arrangements that we were making with the assistance of some organizations and that's how they have managed to come to Lusaka. It's delightful that George is here with us to get healing which will remove the shame associated with his disability!
