CURE in Ethiopia

The picture above is of CURE in Ethiopia. Everyone who serves with CURE in Ethiopia, from medical professionals to office staff, 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 Sintayehu. To do that, we're inviting you to partner with us.

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Sintayehu. When you give a gift through Sintayehu's CUREkids profile, your contribution will help us continue our work in countries like 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 Sintayehu. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Sintayehu has had a disability from birth, but has had to deal with more than just hip pain because of it. People at school call her names like "bow-legged" and make fun of her limping. It hurts her feelings, but it doesn't stop her from dreaming big and enjoying being a kid.

She hopes to become a pilot someday, and when she is not in school learning, she loves to play with her friends. Sintayehu is in grade 2 and lives at home with her parents and brother and sister. She is a pretty shy little girl, but I have a feeling that that might change after she warms up to people.

She will get a procedure for her right hip whenever she comes back to CURE in July. Please keep this little girl in your prayers until then while she continues to deal with the people who do not understand that she simply has a medical condition that can be fixed with a simple surgery. Then follow her journey to healing when she comes back to CURE and recovers from an operation that will have life-changing effects.
