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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Edelawit is so cute that it hurts. She needs a surgery for her left hip. Her family realized that she was limping when she started walking. They took her to another hospital then were referred to CURE. Her father is retired, and the surgery Edelawit needs is not affordable for this family.

She will need what is called a hip open reduction where the doctor will go in and place the hip into the right spot. She also may need what is called a femoral shortening to shave down the bone in her leg so that both are even.

Edelawit is a happy little girl. She loves to play. Now it will just be easier for her to cut up and run around! We can't wait to see her back at CURE in June for her operation.
