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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

What was a decent play day with a friend resulted in Lushomo spending several significantly less fun weeks in a various hospitals. Lushomo’s name means faith in one of Zambia’s local languages and it was his grandfather’s faith that ultimately brought Lushomo here to CURE Zambia. Franco, Lushomo’s grandfather, recalls the day when their lives changed for the worse. Lushomo had been playing with a friend, when he fell and broke a bone in his arm. Franco rushed Lushomo to a local hospital. Sadly, by the time they were seen the following day, Lushomo's arm had swollen and the doctors said there was nothing they could do until the swelling went down. Franco and Lushomo waited almost a week until the swelling receded. The doctors took an x-ray only to find that in the time they waited, another bone had started to grow in the fracture, complicating the treatment and necessitating surgery. Lushomo was referred to a big hospital in Zambia's capital where after only one day, he was referred here to us at CURE Zambia. Even with all the running around and complications, Franco has always believed he would find healing for his grandson and now he has. Please join us in welcoming Lushomo to CURE Zambia!

Lushomo has been discharged! After having a physical therapy session for his hand, he was cleared to go home. Our doctors and PTs told him that he needs to be using his arm as much as possible to keep his elbow flexible. We will see him when he comes back for his follow up appointment! Photo of Lushomo

The recommendation from the doctor was that Lushomo needs to be stretching and using hand cautiously to prevent the elbow from getting stiff. Lushomo is completely on board with this recommendation because it means he can explore and play in our playground! Photo of Lushomo

Dr. Moyo did Lushomo's surgery and carried out a procedure known as a "bone trimming." Since Lushomo's arm had begun to grow a rogue bone in the wrong position, Dr. Moyo had to trim it down so it wouldn't cause even bigger problems down the line. Thankfully, Lushomo's surgery was a success and the risk of further disability has been erased! Photo of Lushomo

Meet Lushomo and his grandfather Franco! Lushomo fractured his left arm, which resulted in another bone growing near the fractured bone and causing all sorts of problems. But now that he's here at CURE Zambia, we'll take care of that. Photo of Lushomo
