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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

From the time he was born, Given has been in and out of hospitals. He was born at a local clinic and his cleft lip was immediately obvious. The clinic staff told Given's mother Telvister to bring her son to the local hospital when Given was two months old and he could get the surgery he needs to repair his lip. Telvister was anxious, but comforted knowing that Given's condition was indeed treatable. When Given finally turned two months old, Telvister excitedly brought him to the hospital only to be turned away and told to come back the next month. This happened repeatedly and with every rejection, Telvister's hope for Given's future waned. Then, with the arrival of COVID-19 in Zambia, the hospital told Telvister there is nothing more they could do for her as their priorities shifted to treating virus patients. Telvister went home broken hearted and fearing for the life Given will have to live with his cleft lip. But being the fierce mother she is, Telvister refused to give up hope. She continued searching for healing and thankfully found us here at CURE Zambia when a new neighbor of hers told her about what we do! Please join us in welcoming Given to CURE Zambia and joining us in prayer for his surgery and healing!

Given has had his cleft lip surgery! Everything went as planned and Given is now resting up and recovering. Babies aren't supposed to breastfeed for a couple days after surgery so here Nurse Mambwe was showing Telvister how to properly feed Given and not interfere with the stitches or healing process!
