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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

“My son's leg bothers me” shares Starnold's father, Evaristo.

Starnold's life took an unfortunate turn about three years ago when he fell into a ditch as he was playing with his friends. He had broken his right leg. After the injury, he was quickly rushed to a local health center where he had a cast put on. However, the magnitude of the injury was underestimated and his leg healed improperly. Due to this, Starnold developed a knock knee that was beyond what this health center could treat.

Everisto tells us that Starnold occasionally complains of pain in his leg which is disturbing. Thankfully, a public announcement vehicle passed through their neighborhood one day, advertising that there will be a team from CURE Zambia visiting a local church and they were looking to treat kids with disabilities. Starnold was taken to this mobile clinic where he was booked to come for surgery here at CURE Zambia. He has now arrived and we are excited to get him the treatment he needs!
