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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Anna is an eleven year old girl who was born with clubfoot. Unsure what to do, Anna's parents did nothing. Her grandmother Paulina initially tried suggesting they go to a local hospital to find treatment, but Anna's parents were not comfortable with that idea. Since then Paulina has done her best to live her life with her feet the way they are. She is one of five children and, because of her feet, the only one that cannot make the long walk to school.

Sadly, over the past few years both of Anna's parents have passed away. Pauline first moved in with her grandmother and was then moved to live with her brother near us here at CURE Zambia. One day, as Anna was walking around her brother's neighborhood, someone saw her and advised that her that her feet are treatable through surgery. They referred her to a local hospital which in turned referred her here to us at CURE Zambia.

It's been a long, roundabout journey, but we are thrilled that Anna has made it here to us. We are even more excited to get started on her treatment and can't wait to see her walk out of our hospital tall, proud, and on two straight feet!
