What am I giving to?

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

We need to raise approximately $1000 to treat children like Frehiwot. When you give a gift through Frehiwot'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 Frehiwot. We call it being a CURE Hero!

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

When I asked Frehiwot about her interests, she definitely gave me a response I wasn't expecting: working out. She just loves to exercise in her spare time and is proud of her confidence and her enjoyment of sports. She's never had any issues with bullying at school or otherwise. That's not surprising, because she looks like she can handle herself quite well.

Frehiwot plans on becoming a doctor when she finishes school and is in 9th grade now. She lives at home with her parents, who are farmers, and with her 10 siblings. Yes, 10! She has 4 brothers and 6 sisters.

She's been dealing with her clubfeet since birth, but she is more than ready to leave that part of her life behind with a surgery here at CURE Ethiopia in the upcoming month. To support her, you can follow her story, donate, or just start praying for the healing to come!
