About Shiferaw

Shiferaw is a super shy guy. When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, he just stared at the ground and smiled. He is in grade 1 now, and he loves science. When he is not in school, he loves to play with the neighborhood kids. He does have some trouble with others bullying him, though. Some children say hurtful things to him like, "Your legs are broken," and it makes him cry.

His parents noticed that there was a problem with his left ankle when he was 3 years old. They said that they were in crisis when they learned that he was deformed, and they quickly took him to cultural medical places. None of those worked, but through a program here in Ethiopia called CBR, the family learned about CURE. It took them 9 months to get here through the program, but now that they've finally made it, they are thrilled at the hope of Shiferaw finding healing.

Shiferaw's parents are farmers, and he likes to help them on the farm. They are all Christians, and they enjoy going to church. He's an only child so he gets a lot of attention from his parents. They are all very close.

Shiferaw will be back to CURE Ethiopia next month to start his journey to healing. You can follow his story here or get updates sent to your Facebook and e-mail by clicking the "follow" button, which also donates a dollar to his surgery on your behalf. Thanks for supporting this cool kid!
