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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Blessings's Story

"I became really worried when I saw the legs bending and the pain got so bad he couldn't even walk," Blessings' mother Consepta recalls.

Late last year, young Blessings' left leg began bending inwards and was soon following by his right. His legs progressed to the point where every time he walks, one knee painfully hits the other knee and this doesn't even take into account the pain he feels from his legs being at unusual angles and causing unnatural stress on his joints. Consepta was dismayed "I was so worried about him because he was born fine, but then this disability started. I was so worried, I could not even eat." No one was sure of the cause of Blessings' knock knees, but their community was adamant that going to a hospital was the worst thing Consepta could do. In many of the countries CURE works, the perception of hospitals is they are a place where people go to die and if the hospitals try to help with any medical condition, they will just make things worse. But Consepta was desperate to find help for Blessings so she defied all the voices in her community and brought Blessings to a local health clinic. This set off a long line of referrals which has resulted in both Consepta and Blessings arriving here at CURE Zambia! Now that Blessings is here, our medical teams will be able to surgically straighten his legs, removing the source of his pain, and opening back up this young man's future!

An x-ray was taken taken and the doctors are deciding what the next steps are for Blessings. Medically, Blessings is doing fine. He loves his wheelchair but he's too small to push himself so we are all involved in keeping Blessings mobile by pushing him around the ward! Photo of Blessings
