What am I giving to?

The CURE Hospital in Ethiopia

The picture above is of the CURE hospital in Ethiopia. The doctors, nurses, technicians, cooks, cleaners, and administrators of CURE Ethiopia are dedicated to providing the highest quality medical and spiritual care to people who, without CURE, couldn't find it and couldn't afford it, just like Naol. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Naol and kids like him. When you give a gift through Naol's CUREkids profile, your contribution is designated to an exclusive country fund for CURE's work in Ethiopia, and those funds can only be used for operational expenses to treat patients in Ethiopia. Have more questions? Ask us.

Monthly Giving: Be a Hero!

When you partner with us monthly, we'll send you an email each month to introduce you to a different child who was helped because of your generosity. You can choose to follow their updates and send them get well messages. That means that each year, you're a part of helping 12 different children, beginning with Naol. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Naol does not know how his right leg came to be deformed, but it didn't happen at birth. Despite his condition, he loves to play with his friends and two siblings. He has 1 sister and 1 brother. Though they do not have much, their family environment is friendly. Naol's father finds work from day to day while Naol's mother stays at home with the children.

When asked what he wants to be when he grows up, Naol just smiled. He does not know. He isn't in school yet, but hopefully he will be able to begin once he finishes with his operation at CURE.

Naol's right leg is genu valgum, which means that it is bent inwards, making it very difficult for him to walk. He will require a DFO, which is a surgery that will straighten out the leg, offering him the chance to run and play with the other children his age.
