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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Mercy's Story

“My husband used to abuse me saying, 'you are the reason why all our children are born with disabilities, your father bewitched you,'” shared Mary, mother to Mercy.

Mercy comes from a family of five and sadly all her siblings were born with disabilities just like her. This unfortunate state of affairs has made her mother endure the pain of raising these children emotionally alone.

Of the five children, three are here and they are receiving treatment at CURE Zambia: Mercy who is ten years old and second born in the family who has equinus foot, we also have Simon, five years old and third born in the family just like his older sister he has equinus foot and the their last born Collins who is one years old with clubfoot. Their mother Mary tells us that the first born who is now 15 years old was born with bilateral clubfoot and when he was two years old he started posenti. He had several cast changes and then they stopped after the feet improved. The other child is at home is a three year old boy named Clement who had clubfoot, he started ponseti and even had a tenotomy and he has recovered well.

It has been confusing for Mary and the family as to why they have been having kids with born with disabilities, “I don’t know what has caused me to be giving birth to children with disabilities, we have been to different places in search for solutions, including witch doctors but we have not found anything,” Mary recounts. Mary has been pushed in comprised situations which has birthed bitterness in her because of her predicament. “I am bitter because when my husband chases me from home my mother would say don’t bring all your children here, find somewhere else to take them.” It is a blessing that Mary heard announcements that a team from CURE Zambia will be conducting a mobile clinic at a local hospital to see all the children with different disabilities. Mary made an effort to bring her children for the mobile clinic and they were seen and booked to come for surgery. A few weeks later we managed to make transport arrangements with the aid of some organizations to bring her with her three children in the company of other children and parents from the same area. We are happy that our hospital doesn’t only provide physical healing but we also endeavor to heal spiritually and emotionally, a role which our spiritual center actively plays. Mary and her kids are in the right place and we're thankful to all of you and your support in making holistic healing possible!

Social worker Muke was painting on Collins' casts and as soon as older sister Mercy and older brother Simon saw what was happening, they joined in the painting party! This is a close knit family and the fact that they are all undergoing treatment together makes the healing journey less emotionally stressful for all of them. Please keep praying for this beautiful family! Photo of Mercy

Mercy's mother received a present from our finance director Catherine! Co-workers from our administration department joined the patients, parents and guardians in our ward for devotions and after the devotion co-workers donated early Christmas gifts to all our patients in the ward.

Mercy loves singing! She was singing during our daily ward devotions where parents and guardians gather together in fellowship and the kids who are older like Mercy also participate! Our kids not only hear worship but they also hear Bible stories in our playroom. Mercy will likely have a cast change tomorrow before they leave for home, keep on praying for her! Photo of Mercy

These two are having a ride together in the wheelchair! Mercy likes to be with her younger brother Collins. We think he feels the same way because whenever he is not with his mother, he is with Mercy. Medically, Mercy would have been discharged by now but her and her younger brother Simon are still sticking around because of Collins who still needs a couple more cast changes. Thank you for your faithful prayers for this family! Photo of Mercy

For Mercy, healing is a family experience! Photo of Mercy
