This is Carmen!

Recently, Dr. Collen at CURE Zimbabwe completed the first procedure to separate his fingers at no cost to him or his family.

Without this care, his genetic condition would likely become a permanent disability excluding him from his peers. We meet kids like Carmen every single day. Their conditions are often neglected, and their self-esteem is depleted. That’s why we also work to promote emotional healing of patients and their families with therapeutic activities.

You can make a difference in the life of a child like Carmen right now! The cost of an accessible playground to provide inclusive playtime for children with a range of mobility requirements is £10,000. Our fundraiser has already raised over half of the money needed to bring the power of play to CURE Zimbabwe kids! 

A gift of any amount will mean the world to kids like Carmen 😃
