About the Hospital

Malinda before and after healing at CURE ZambiaIn 2004, CURE signed an agreement with the Zambian Ministry of Health to operate a pediatric teaching hospital specializing in the treatment and care of children living with physical disabilities. The Beit Trust, a UK-based charity, provided $1.5 million to support construction of the hospital as a centennial gift to the people of Zambia. The Zambian government donated a 60-acre plot of land for the hospital site. CURE Zambia opened in 2006.

CURE Zambia is one of the few hospitals in Zambia able to adequately address the surgical needs of children with disabilities in the country. The hospital campus is comprised of six buildings, housing 45 patient beds in the children’s ward and 16 beds in the private patients ward. The hospital also houses a chapel and spiritual center, three operating theaters, an outpatient clinic, an administrative building and a general services building. Services at the hospital are focused on pediatric orthopedics, neurosurgery, and reconstructive plastic surgery.

Through the work done at our hospital and at various mobile clinics, CURE Zambia is addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of those who need help most.

The Week in Photos: Completely transformed

Aminou is leaving this week! He lived a huge transformation being here. When he came, his head was stuck with his shoulder and he couldn’t use his arm properly. We saw an amazing change in his body as in his personality and we are so thankful to have been the witnesses of it! https://cure.org/curekids/niger/2015/04/amine/

Partnerships

IF

The International Foundation for Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus (IF) has been a great partner in CURE’s efforts to eliminate untreated hydrocephalus in the developing world. Along with directly supporting CURE’s work, they also supply the shunts used for hydrocephalus surgeries in Uganda, Zambia, and our CURE Hydrocephalus treatment locations.

Smile Train

Since the fall of 2006, in collaboration with Smile Train, CURE has developed cleft lip and cleft palate surgical training programs in most of CURE’s hospitals worldwide. These programs not only provide surgery for children and counseling for them and their families, but also train national surgeons in reconstructive surgery.
