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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“I want to go back to school when I get healed” Loveness tells us shyly.

Loveness has a condition known as bilateral clubfoot that has robbed her of the opportunity to live a normal life for the past 17 years. What has been her biggest challenge and a source of pain has been her inability to wear shoes. “I walk barefoot. I can't put on shoes like everyone else. Even sandals or flip flops don't fit on my feet,” says Loveness, her frustration revealing how important this is to her. Loveness tells us that people in her community mock her likening her to a door lock, which moves as the door is opened and closed but doesn’t actually go anywhere. They're referring to how Loveness can't walk for long distance due to the pain of her condition. Her feet allow her to move, but never travel. She is essentially trapped where she is, both physically and emotionally.

Been the first born daughter in her family, her mother Margaret was really puzzled wondering could have caused Loveness to be like this. In a desperate attempt for both answers and healing, Margaret took Loveness, when she was just a few weeks old, to a traditional healer. The healer compressed Loveness' legs with some herbs, but ultimately did nothing to correct her feet.

For 17 years now, Loveness has lived with her condition, doing the best she could, Thankfully as she was walking one day, an old patient of ours here at CURE Zambia saw her and encouraged her to come to us for treatment. Now that she has arrived at our hospital, Loveness is excited that she is about to start treatment for clubfoot and she has a wish: “When I get healed I want to go back to school and I eventually want to be a teacher!”
