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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

This little boy's parents took him all over Ethiopia trying to find a place that would help their son. His condition is hard to tell from a photo or even when he walks, but as he gets older it will only worsen until it causes him a lot of pain and starts to hinder his everyday life.

Other hospitals told the family that there is no operation for his case in Ethiopia, which is true with the exception of CURE. When they visited the last hospital- Black Lion- they were referred here, and now he is scheduled for surgery in the next month.

Aduniyas is a very happy child. His parents are bankers, and even though they make a decent living compared to many others in this country, the income is still not enough to support their son's operation. Thankfully, CURE can provide free care for him, and the family can rest easier knowing this disability won't be a burden later in his life.
