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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

Henry's Story

“We have been going to another local hospital and they have been giving him appointment dates. He has been waiting for over a year now to get his surgery,” shares Leya, Henry’s mother.

Henry’s treatment has been characterized with long hospital waits. The longest being over a year long wait for surgery. The process started in 2017 when Henry was injured on his right leg as he was on his way back home from school. On the same day, he was rushed to a local hospital where it was discovered that he fractured his right leg, slightly above his knee. He was admitted to the hospital that day. However, Henry was only taken to the operating room for surgery after staying in the hospital for three weeks. Leya, his mother, was told that Henry’s bones were starting to heal...in a wrong position. He needed surgery. With no other option, Henry went for surgery at a local hospital and stayed there for over three months after surgery. When he was finally discharged, his leg started to bend again just a few weeks later.

When it was time for Henry’s follow-up, he was referred to a hospital in Lusaka. Since then, they have been waiting for another surgery again for over a year. Leya couldn’t not afford transport to and from Lusaka because they live in the eastern part of Zambia. So she decided to stay in Lusaka with a relative. She thought they would go home soon, but the wait has been so long that they have been moving from house to house until they get the call.

Henry is the last born in a family of four. Because he’s been in Lusaka for a while, he has been enrolled and continued with school herel. When time came that he would have his surgery, Leya was asked to pay for Henry’s surgery, but she couldn’t afford it. Thankfully, one of the doctors told them to visit CURE Zambia. She was given the contact details for one of our doctors, who encouraged them to come see us. After a long time of waiting, Henry finally made it to the right place here at CURE Zambia where he can get proper treatment in his healing journey!
