About Aduniyas

This little boy's parents took him all over Ethiopia trying to find a place that would help their son. His condition is hard to tell from a photo or even when he walks, but as he gets older it will only worsen until it causes him a lot of pain and starts to hinder his everyday life.

Other hospitals told the family that there is no operation for his case in Ethiopia, which is true with the exception of CURE. When they visited the last hospital- Black Lion- they were referred here, and now he is scheduled for surgery in the next month.

Aduniyas is a very happy child. His parents are bankers, and even though they make a decent living compared to many others in this country, the income is still not enough to support their son's operation. Thankfully, CURE can provide free care for him, and the family can rest easier knowing this disability won't be a burden later in his life.
