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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“Because we couldn't afford the cost of surgery, we just stayed home with his broken hand,” shares Grace, Jackson's mother, her voice low.

Jackson is a 10 year old boy whose life took an abrupt left turn last month when he fell and broke his hand. Adrenaline got him home, but once there, and as the adrenaline started to wear off, the pain came surging and was soon unbearable. Grace rushed her crying son to the nearest medical center. Unfortunately, the center's x-ray machine was currently broken and Grace and Jackson were told they would have to get themselves to the nearest hospital which was even further away. It turns out the hospital's x-ray was also broken and the pair were sent on to another clinic. With the day fading and the clinic closing, Grace and Jackson had no choice but to wait until the next day. They finally did get the x-ray at this clinic and brought it to the hospital to get Jackson's broken arm taken care of, a full day of pain after he had broken it. But what was supposed to be a moment of relief became a moment of misery. After looking at his x-ray, the doctors told them Jackson had a bad break and would need a surgery that costs several hundred dollars, not even considering the stay in the hospital and medication. This was far outside what Grace could afford and with no payment, there would be no surgery. This hospital sent them away with only a small bandage to keep Jackson's arm in place to help minimize his pain.

It killed Grace to see her son in pain so she chased down every option to raise the needed money, but she always came up short. It wasn't until several long weeks later that a relative of one of her neighbors heard about their plight and was able to tell Grace about the surgical healing we offer here at CURE Zambia.

Grace and Jackson have now arrived at our door and Jackson will finally get the surgery he needs, not because of what he can pay, but because he is a human created in the image of God.

The goal in the OR was to first align Jackson's broken bone and then apply a cast. It's a pretty straight forward process and our surgical staff finished his operation with no complications! Jackson will get a post-op x-ray later to see if he might need another surgery or not. He's currently resting in the ward. Please join us in praying for good news from this upcoming x-ray!
