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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Teyent is a happy little girl that needs a hip surgery in order to walk without a limp now and as she gets older. Her family noticed when she was 1 year and 3 months old that she was not walking correctly. They took her to a nearby hospital that referred her to CURE.

Teyent's father would not be able to afford the surgery his daughter needs on a driver's salary so CURE is the right place for them to come. She needs an operation on her right hip, and also the shortening of her leg bone.

She does not go to school at this time, but now that she is getting this operation, it shouldn't be a hindrance for her education when she gets older. For now, Teyent just plays around the house and brings her parents a lot of joy. With prayer and financial support this family will have even more to be joyful about. Please follow this little girl's story as she gets this procedure and recovers from it.

Teyent is receiving treatment at CURE Ethiopia - Teyent ended up only needing a closed hip reduction for now. That means that the doctors did not need to go in and place the bone. They did it from the outside. She'll be in a special cast for about 6 weeks to hold the hip in place while it heals on the inside.
