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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

“We are been kept very well here,” said Mary, grandmother to Joyce.

Mary embarked on a journey to come and seek healing at CURE Zambia in Lusaka, unfortunately the relative who she expected to pick them up at the bus station had a problem with her phone and Mary couldn’t reach them which left her in an unknown city and in anguish. Thankfully, she had the phone number for Dr. Moyo who had seen and booked Joyce at the one of his medical visits at the hospital in the eastern part of the country. He gave them directions on the phone to the hospital from the bus station and they arrived safely!

Joyce's problem developed about two years ago when she suddenly had an abscess on her leg. The abscess was treated at a local clinic and she healed. A few weeks later, her right leg started abnormally bending outwardly and this has persisted for years. They use to take her to the local hospital with the hope that she could be helped and kept on getting appointments and on one of their visits, they met Dr. Moyo who advised Joyce to come to CURE Zambia for treatment.

Joyce's leg gives her the most pain when she participates in active play with friends. Mary says she is happy with the way they are been treated at the hospital, she also says that the food is as good as the food from home! Be praying for Joyce and her grandmother Mary during their stay with us at CURE Zambia!
