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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Grace's Story

“People do laugh at her, but I encourage her. I tell her, it’s not your fault you were born like this,” says Esnart, Grace's mother.

Grace was born with a condition known as hallux bifidus in her right foot. This has made her big toe much bigger than it is supposed to be. It may seem like a simple deformity but to Grace it is a big deal because it causes her both social and emotional stress. She has tried to wear shoes to both hide her deformity as well as just to get around, but she had to wear two different sizes in order to accommodate her bigger toe. Buying two pairs of shoes for one child is not something Grace's family can afford so she'll often just wear one shoe around, further setting her apart for ridicule.

Grace is in eighth grade and she aspires to be a medical doctor when she grows up. Grace is the third born in her family of six and out of her siblings, she is only one who was born with a deformity. Thankfully, Esnart heard about us here at CURE Zambia from one of her relatives and Grace has been brought to our hospital to have her deformity corrected!
