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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Mwaleti has medical condition which is a mystery to his mother. She doesn't know how it began, but she strongly suspects he he was born like this. This five year old boy has an abnormal bending in his right leg. The disability is so problematic, he limps when walking. It first became visible to Bwalya when he was about two months old. Elders in their community started compressing his leg, but it wasn’t getting any better so they stopped that local treatment after a couple of weeks.

A while back, Bwalya decided to try bringing Mwaleti to a local hospital for treatment. Unfortunately, everything this hospital tried failed until they suggested amputation as a last resort. Bwalya was obviously unhappy about this option, but if it was the only option, what choice did she have? That is until, an employee from our partner organization World Vision found Mwaleti and offered to bring him here to us at CURE Zambia!

Now that Mwaleti is here, he will get the surgery he needs to straighten his leg and get back on his feet!

Mwaleti didn't go home last week despite the discharge, he ended waiting for some special crutches to be made just for him and he likes them! He has been cleared to go home and since he now has his crutches, he's off! His cast will be removed after a couple of weeks at a local hospital and he will be back early next year to check in with us! Photo of Mwaleti

Just to double check, Mwaleti had a post-op x-ray today which confirmed everything is staying where it needs to be. With this confirmation, Mwaleti was discharged! He will need to have his cast on for a while until the healing is complete. In a few weeks, he'll be back for his check-up and hopefully we'll be able to remove his cast! Please pray that his healing will be smooth as he goes back home! Photo of Mwaleti

We have visiting pediatric orthopedic surgeon Dr. Davey who, together with Dr. Muntanga, operated on Mwaleti! During the surgery, Mwaleti had his leg straightened and then a metal pin inserted which will keep everything in position as he heals. Be praying for Mwaleti as he recovers post-op! Photo of Mwaleti

Meet Mwaleti! He is a fun loving young man and very active. He likes to run around despite having a short right leg. He is here with his mother Bwalya. His previous medical history is unclear, his mother doesn't really know what medical procedures were done to the son but thankfully our surgeons are willing to do proper examination and formulate a surgical plan that will assist him. Kindly pray for Mwaleti as he begins his treatment process! Photo of Mwaleti
