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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Amognesh is working for a family as their house maid. When the father of the house heard about CURE, he brought her here hoping she could get an operation to correct her left foot, which is slightly bent but causes her a lot of pain. Her boss is blind, but he and his family were willing to pay for her operation if needed.

Amognesh was in grade 6 when she had to quit school. She still dreams of going back after her operation, though. Before she started working as a housemaid, she lived with her family in Gojam, which is quite a distance from Addis Ababa where our hospital is located. Her parents are farmers, and she has 1 brother and 1 sister.

CURE is the first hospital that she's ever visited even though she's lived with this condition since birth. She never had any issues with bullying because of her disability, though. It's a little bit difficult to see from photos or even when she is walking that she has any kind of deformity, but the pain that it causes her is the main thing she is excited about leaving behind.
