People of CURE

“I am very happy!

“I heard about CURE Ethiopia through my niece who was online searching for work. When CURE Ethiopia was moving from an office space to the hospital, I helped them move. I’ve been here since the opening of the hospital. When I witnessed CURE helping kids, I knew I’d be here for a long time. It’s been 8 years now. I’m happy with my work. Being happy with my work allowed me to get married and have my first child with my second on the way. Coming from a family of 23 other children, from 3 of my father’s wives, I wanted to be completely secure when I chose to settle down. My happiness and fulfillment from working at CURE Ethiopia since it’s opened is easy to see in all aspects of my life, that’s what I mean when I say I’m very happy!”
