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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“My leg is in pain and sometimes, I even fail to walk because of the pain,” shares Jenipher

Jenipher is the first born and has one sibling. When she was 10 months old, she started having problems with her leg. “She developed an illness when she was 10 months old. Her whole body was swollen but she survived it and the swelling subsided… except her right leg which remained swollen all these years. Jenipher was already walking before she got sick, but then she stopped because walking caused so much pain. Thankfully, she started to feel better and begin walking again,” shares Jenipher’s mother, Lindah.

For most of her life, Jenipher lived with the swelling problem. They took her to a local hospital for physical therapy, but that didn’t help instead caused her leg to swell up again. They immediately stopped physical therapy and were told that there is nothing that could be done to assist her at that local hospital.

One day, Jenipher who is currently in sixth grade was walking by the road and met someone who led them to CURE Zambia. “Someone was driving by and saw her by the roadside walking. He reached out to Jenipher and told me about CURE Zambia. Due to the pandemic, the hospital was closed, but weeks later, he brought the good news that the hospital is open again to treat Jenipher!” recalls Lindah.

Jenipher wants to become a nurse. We are happy that she is about to start her treatment––a major step to take to fulfilling her dreams! We know that Jenipher has a bright future ahead and we are so grateful that we could take part in her healing! Please pray for Jenipher!

The doctors decided not to do an open surgery for Jenipher this time. However, she still went to our OR so our doctors can stretch out her legs and move her knee under anesthesia. They applied a long leg cast at the end of it. Her treatment will be gradual as we wait to see how she does in a couple of weeks. We will keep you posted on the next step! Photo of Jenipher
