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

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

Got it. Thanks for the explanation.

See more options for partnering with us financially here.

Kibru needs clubfoot surgery on each of his feet. Despite having this disability, he is still a very happy child. He loves to run around and play, and he brings a lot of joy to his parents.

Kibru is an only child. His parents were sad when they saw that his feet were deformed, but they were determined to find healing for their son. CURE is the first hospital they've been to seeking help for Kibru.

Kibru's father is a student. He is in Grade 8, and he also provides for his family by farming. Kibru's mother stays at home.

The family is looking forward to this life-changing operation for Kibru. You can follow his journey to healing here or support him with prayer or financially. It's going to be an incredible day when this 3 year old is running around with 2 straight feet.

Kibru's treatment date has been changed to 11/25/2012 - Kibru was supposed to arrive for surgery at the end of last month, but unfortunately he contracted malaria and was not able to make it. He is still recovering from that at this time so he does not have an actual date scheduled for arrival. We hope that by next month he can make it back to us. Until then, let's be praying for his healing from this terrible sickness.
