About Tsege

Tsege is a quiet little girl that speaks Oromifa, which is not the national language of Ethiopia. Because of the language barrier, it was difficult to get her answers to certain questions like "what do you want to be when you grow up?" or "what do you like about yourself?" Sadly, one question she did understand and was able to answer was whether or not she's been bullied by other kids. "They call me shiba." She answered. Shiba is a cruel term for 'crippled', and sadly, a lot of the CUREkids have been referenced as this.

Fortunately, Tsege won't have to live with this stigma much longer. All she needs is a simple clubfoot surgery to straighten out her left foot that has been severely deformed since birth.

Tesge's parents are both farmers. She lives with them and her 4 siblings. She has 2 brothers and 2 sisters. She is in KG2, which is like a second year of kindergarten. She likes to play with her friends when she is not learning.

  10. 05/17/2012 Tsege's dad says that he is so grateful that CURE has given his daughter the opportunity to be whatever she wants to be. "My hope for her is that she will be a doctor or something like that," he says. Thanks for all of the prayers and the support for her surgery! It's so appreciated.
  11. 05/16/2012 Tsege is in recovery at CURE Ethiopia - The doctor said that instead of doing what is called a midfoot osteotomy (to straighten out the middle of the foot as well), they just performed a regular clubfoot surgery for Tsege. If she has any trouble in the future after healing, they can go back and correct the middle of the foot, but for now they want to see how it grows as it heals.

  14. 05/04/2012 Congratulations! Tsege's funding goal is met!
  15. 04/29/2012 For kids that live in rural villages, conditions such as clubfoot can be seen as a curse or punishment. With treatment, Tsege will be able to go back and show them that it's simply a medical condition that can easily be reversed. http://bit.ly/J1twez
