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 Amanuel. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $2000 for every procedure we provide Amanuel and kids like him. When you give a gift through Amanuel'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 Amanuel. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Amanuel and his brother, Habte, both believe that their leg deformities are a result of contracting malaria. Amanuel is a bit more shy than his older brother. He hid his face when I asked him what he wants to be when he grows up. He finally answered that he would like to become a doctor.

Amanuel and Habte both live at CBR (Community Based Rehabilitation), a place for kids with disabilities, where they learn their own potential and can play with other kids who have similar conditions. Amanuel is in his first year of school, and he is most looking forward to going back to school after surgery.

His shyness subsided when I was "not looking". He started singing and laughing with his friends. Amanuel needs surgery for both ankles and legs. He has a lot of trouble walking on his own, but that does not stop him from playing soccer. The caregiver from CBR that brought the kids to CURE, tells me that he will play all day long. Let's keep these brothers in our hearts and prayers as they embark on this journey to healing together.
