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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Sydney is is the eighth born in his family of ten, he has bowed legs but his condition was not much of surprise to the family because one of his elder brothers has rickets. His brother's condition diminished as he grew older but unfortunately for Sydney, the bending of the legs has been getting worse as he grows. Our young boy is full energy and his sister tells us he even plays football with friends back home.

His family's earlier attempts to get him treated did not bring about any results because they had taken him to a local clinic who in return referred them to another hospital. The hospital they said nothing would be done to heal Sydney and sent them back home hopeless. Luckily Sydney has a cousin named Goodson who has clubfoot. Goodson was brought in to one of our mobile clinics we held in Luapula province. Goodson was booked to CURE Zambia for surgery and transport arrangements were made for him to come. He has so far received surgery on his left leg, so when Sydney's sister who is based here in Lusaka came to see Goodson in the hospital after seeing some of the kids that we treat including those with conditions like the one Sydney has, they resolved that should also bring Sydney for treatment. The family arranged transport for him to come right away. We are glad that Sydney has found healing through his cousin Goodson who is also receiving treatment at CURE Zambia, what looked like a family curse is been eliminated through healing! Join us in praying for Sydney's healing journey!

Sydney has bounced back fast after his surgery! Within such a short period of time of his stay in the hospital he has already made friends and they have been moving around as a group in our ward. In light of the coming holidays in a few weeks it has been decided that will have his surgery on his second leg tomorrow to give us ample time to observe him after surgery. Please be praying for Sydney! Photo of Sydney
